Hemmings targeting strong finish

14 April 2023

Captain Kane Hemmings says Tranmere Rovers must aim to finish the season on a high ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture away at Crawley Town. 

Ian Dawes’ men have five games left of the campaign and will be hoping to make it back-to-back wins in Sussex this weekend following on from Easter Monday’s 1-0 home victory over Swindon Town at Prenton Park. 

And speaking to the local media, skipper Hemmings previewed Rovers’ next outing at Crawley.

Hemmings said: “We need to take some professional pride. Regardless of where we are in the table, we want to win every game, so on Saturday we’ll want go there and win, and we still want to finish the season on a high and it will put us in good stead.

“We represent the Club and the people who work for the Club, as well as ourselves and our families, so we have to go out and do our best to try and win our final few games.

“We’re playing teams who have a lot riding on the games so we need to go out and be competitive to win the game, when we go to these places or in home games.

“We want to go to Crawley and win, then Rochdale on Tuesday and Grimsby next Saturday, we want to win these games going into the last few weeks of the season.”

Hemmings recently returned from injury, and he is pleased to be back in action.

He added: “It’s good to be back out there. Obviously, it’s frustrating when you’re out injured and miss a long period of time, so it’s just nice to be back out there with the lads and hopefully I can help in any way. 

“It’s probably the longest period in my career that I’d gone without picking up an injury or niggle. I played in every game when I came in last year and near enough every game this season, so it was disappointing not to be out there to try and help my team-mates, so I was eager to get back.

“I was able to show support and help the lads off the pitch, so I’m happy to be back now.

“You need players pushing each other and who can make an impact when they are called upon.”
