Davies pleased with third clean sheet

17 August 2021

Tom Davies said that Tranmere Rovers were just missing the final piece of the jigsaw, as the side drew 0-0 away to Swindon Town on Tuesday night.

Micky Mellon’s side kept their unbeaten start to League Two going with a draw at the County Ground, recording a win and two draws from the opening three games.

He said: “Another good point on the road. We’ve got to be solid when we come away to these tough places, and I think we did that tonight. 

“We're just missing that final piece of the jigsaw, we’ll brush ourselves down and hopefully pick up a win on Saturday.”

The 29-year-old said he was pleased with how Rovers performed, adding that a team effort will help to collect three points.

“I think they’re a good team, and we know ourselves that we’re a good team. It was a good matchup tonight, hopefully we can start to turn these into wins. That starts on Saturday, back at Prenton Park.

“We win as a team, we lose as a team, and we draw as a team. It’s up to us as well to make it our ball to help the players up the pitch. It’s a team effort, I thought we were good tonight, and just missed that final piece.”

Davies also highlighted the versatility of the side, with tactical tweaks changing the defence from a back three to a back four and vice versa.

“We’ve got good players all over the pitch, and when you come to a club like Tranmere, you’re going to have that. It’s a nice thing to have in our armoury, and when we played in a back three, we looked solid. 

“If the gaffer goes to a back four, we can do the same and stay solid. It’s a nice place to be, and it’s nice that we’re looking solid at the back. We just need to convert them into wins, and it’ll be a happy place.”

The defender praised goalkeeper Joe Murphy, adding that his performances have kept Rovers in the last couple of games.

“He’s in top form, and touch wood he keeps up with it! He’s kept us in the last two, and as I keep saying if we can nick a goal at the other end, it’ll be a happy place.

“Joe was brilliant again tonight, he’s a top keeper and talks to the defenders at the back, keeps us on our toes. It’s nice when you know you’ve got a safe set of hands behind you.”
