Murphy: There's a lot of football to be played

4 April 2022

Experienced goalkeeper Joe Murphy admitted to local media that the result against Carlisle on Saturday will be a tough one to get over but has said that the squad will dust themselves down with everything still to be played for between now and the end of the season.

A late equaliser from Tobi Sho-Silva was a sickenener and Murphy gave his recollection of the visitor's equaliser and how the squad will bounce back from the late setback.

"We're still saying in there (dressing room) we can't believe he took a shot because if he blazes it over the bar he's getting dog's abuse. I didn't see him strike it, I think he went to strike it and then he took another touch and there was bodies in front. When I heard it hit the post I was delighted, but I looked across and it had come back in, it's devastating.

"That's the last two games we've conceded probably four points, but we've got to dust ourselves down. There are still six games left, there's a lot of football to be played. It's going to be a difficult one to get over, we'll clear the decks, maybe a couple of days off just to get the minds right and then attack next week and another massive game next week."

Despite being denied the victory late on, Murphy is confident that Rovers' blip is behind them and offered a glance ahead to another huge clash, with Bristol Rovers making the trip to Prenton Park next weekend.

"It's massive, there are eleven, twelve teams all in the mix so you want to be in there. Hopefully are little blip that we had is gone and if we finish well you just don't know where it's going to take us, to be two points off third, I don't know how many points off second we are but we've got to keep going. You win two or three games on the bounce and we'll see where that gets us.

"These (results) are difficult, but if we were playing poorly it would be more difficult but we're not, we're doing ok these last four or five games I feel. We've got a full week's training next week and then hopefully we can get a good result against Bristol (Rovers), which is another tough game as they're in and around it."
