Danny Lloyd is going into Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Oldham Athletic at Prenton Park “full of confidence,” as Keith Hill’s men return to fourth tier action.
Following Tuesday night’s victory down at Oxford United which saw Rovers reach Wembley for a Papa John’s Trophy Final with Sunderland on Sunday 14th March, attention now focuses back on the league.
TRFC are sixth in the table as they prepare to welcome Harry Kewell’s Latics to the Wirral, and if they secure three points, they could move level with the top three if results go their way.
And attacking midfielder Lloyd, 29, says that Tranmere are confident but must take it one game at a time.
Lloyd: said: “They are a very good side. They have got some really good attacking threats who we will have to nullify if we want to go and win the game, but we are very confident that we can pick up results and pick-up wins, and that’s what we need to do and keep believing that we can go and do it.
“Confidence is high in the group at the moment, so we will be going into the game full of confidence whilst giving Oldham the respect that we deserve, but hopefully we can go and get the win.
“It’s an extremely tight table and a run of victories for any team in this league can propel you up the table, so we need to take it as each game as it comes, and the next game is Oldham.
“We’ve got to focus our best efforts on winning that game.
"The squad here is very good and everyone here is pulling in the right direction, we all want the same thing, and we want to do big things season. You don’t do anything over the course of a season with just 11 players, you do it with a squad, and this squad is one of the best.
“As the results have been ticking over and we keep picking up wins and performing well, the confidence is growing in the lads and since I’ve been here, we’ve always believed that we have been capable.
“There’s loads of quality in the squad and you can see that. You’ve seen that with the changes that the gaffer made in the Papa John’s Trophy games, to go and beat Peterborough and Oxford who are two really good League One teams, just shows you the quality of players that we have in the squad.”
