Lloyd 'buzzing' to score first league goal

23 January 2021

Danny Lloyd described the feeling of scoring his first league goal for Tranmere Rovers as he helped the Whites complete a league double over Bolton Wanderers.

The 29-year-old opened the scoring at Prenton Park with a goal inside five minutes, setting Keith Hill’s side on their way to three points. 

Prior to this encounter, Lloyd had scored three times in the Papa John’s Trophy for the Club but was delighted to get off the mark in Sky Bet League Two. 

“I’m absolutely buzzing to get my first league goal for the club, it’s been a long time coming,” he admitted. “There’s still loads more to come from me as I keep getting fitter and sharper. 

“I’m happy to be out there. I had a time away from football, my last year at Salford was really in and out. I’m just happy to be involved and I’m loving playing for the club. It’s just a shame that the fans aren’t in. Hopefully I’m here for long enough to experience it.” 

“It was a very, very tough game. Even when they went down to ten men, they made it difficult for us and moved the ball well.” 

Recognising Tranmere’s progression as a team and the understanding being developed with the Whites’ boss, Lloyd added: “We’re getting his philosophy and ethos of how he wants to play football. In the last two games, he’s said that he’s been really pleased with the performances. I think we’ve just got to keep going, taking each game as it comes and hopefully, we’re in there at the end of the season.”
