Tranmere Rovers manager Keith Hill has challenged his side to build on their recent performances when Stevenage visit Prenton Park on Tuesday night.
Rovers will be aiming for a seventh straight win in all competitions, having moved inside the top three of Sky Bet League Two after Saturday’s 3-1 home victory over Port Vale.
The result lifted TRFC into the automatic promotion places in the fourth tier, and Hill hopes that his in-form squad can continue their winning run against Alex Revell’s Boro.
Hill said: “Every challenge is difficult, and it represents a different challenge personnel wise, style wise and we have to be competitive and show desire and determination and professionalism.
“We have to build on our recent effort and our recent endeavours and be humble in our approach against Stevenage on Tuesday night.
“We’re working on keeping our form and to build and make our basics better, which is a regular occurrence on the training pitch, but obviously the game is a really important test of how we want to play and the energy that we’ll bring in and out of possession.
“The 90-minute game is our unique opportunity to perform and do everything we can to strive for a three-point result.
“We’re confident, but we’re very respectful of the opposition. We are on a good run of form and a good run of results and we want that to continue.
“We want to try and maximise our points because we have ambitions to be successful. The players are in very good form and they are very confident.”
Hill also wants his players to “represent” the SWA in the right way heading into the final 20 games of the league season.
He added: “We’ve got to represent the supporters and create an identity that supporters can be proud of as individuals and as a team through our professionalism, the way we are as people and our ability to associate with our fanbase has got to be special.
“We have got to build an association and build a football family, and I believe that’s what we are doing, and that’s our job.”
