Dacres-Cogely: "We've got a good unity"

13 August 2021

Josh Dacres-Colgey says he is enjoying being a Tranmere Rovers player, ahead of the trip to Port Vale on Saturday.

The 25-year-old joined Rovers from Birmingham City in the summer, and made his league debut for the club in last week’s win over Walsall.

He said: “I’m really enjoying it. It’s been, I wouldn’t say different to what I expected in a good way. The work, even in pre-season to the start of the season, we’ve got a great bunch of lads. We’ll only move forward, especially with this manager and this group of players.

“We all know that we’re trying to get promotion. That’s the aim for this year. It feels like we’ve been together for ages, it’s all a really good group of lads. We’re all close already, and want to work hard for each other already. 

“We’ve got a good unity together.”

Dacres-Cogley also said he was eager to start the competitive season with the club, and was pleased with the side’s performance in the opening day victory.

“I was raring to go, after the Warrington game. Obviously, we’ve played Rangers, but I was raring to go and get the season started. I wanted to play in competitive league games, and obviously help the team get all three points. 

“It’s a great sign [to win], and I don’t think we were quite at our best. We stopped them with whatever they were trying to do, and we looked good when we were attacking and moving the ball fast. Midweek was disappointing, but we’ll look forward to Saturday and try and get the team the points.”

The defender played for Birmingham in the Sky Bet Championship, and says there isn’t too much difference when playing in League Two. 

“The differences are marginal. Different sorts of tactics, but in terms of quality of players, there’s not much difference. If you want to be the best player in this league, you’ve still got to do everything properly, be switched on, make the right decisions. 

“Working hard is a given for all leagues. There’s really not that much different, it’s still competitive just like the Championship was. It suits me well.”
