Keith Hill previews Cheltenham clash

1 April 2021

Keith Hill spoke to the media ahead of Tranmere Rovers’ fixture away at Cheltenham Town on Good Friday.

Rovers visit Whaddon Road in Sky Bet League Two, with the match against Michael Duff’s Robins televised live on Sky Sports.

And Hill is taking it on a game-by-game basis, heading into the clash in Gloucestershire. 

Hill said: “You learn from every situation that you find yourself in and you try to develop the group of players and yourself for the next game, so we are taking it each game as it comes individually irrespective of the position that the team occupies.

“We’re trying to pick up as many points as we possibly can, and the fact of the matter is over the last 27 games we are averaging over two points a game.

“We have to take individual games as they come. Cheltenham are a good side, managed by a good footballing friend of mine and I’m glad to see he’s doing well, this is third and a half season, and they are established with that group of players and have a clear identity.

“We are well prepared in our pursuit of getting three points and we’re happy to deal with the next game.”

Hill confirmed that captain Scott Davies will miss the rest of the season after he ruptured his Achilles tendon in the recent draw with Mansfield Town.

He added: “He’s had his scan and his assessment, and our worst fears were realised when he has ruptured his Achilles and it will be a long recovery, he needs surgery, but he gets the support of the Football Club, the players and the staff and our supporters for speedy recovery.

“We’re very fortunate that we have lots of personalities and we’re missing two big personalities in James Vaughan and Scott as result of injuries, and it’s their presence on the team sheet and on the training pitch and they have been a great value to me as a manager, but it gives an opportunity for Joe Murphy to come in.”
