Turnbull looking forward to Friday night football

30 March 2023

Jordan Turnbull faced the local press on Thursday afternoon ahead of Friday night’s clash with Harrogate Town at Prenton Park.

The central defender discussed the changes over recent weeks, their opposition this Friday as well as the need to keep going until the end of the season.

“Obviously we had the whole of last week with Dawesy and the players know him and Parky really well so it was quite an easy transition. We had the whole week last week and I think you could see what we were trying to implement on Saturday, especially in the first half. It’s about continuing to work on that now.

“We’ve altered our playing style a little bit and we’ve been working on a lot of things this week as well so we need to carry out what the staff want from us. It’s a new formation for us and a way of playing so it’s about nailing that down on the training pitch and taking on board the information. 

“As long as you work on it and everyone knows their roles in and out of possession then should be able to eliminate most of the risk and that’s what we’ve been working on. We don’t want to concede goals but we also want to score goals at the other end so it’s about creating that balance.”

Friday presents an opportunity for Rovers to perform in front of the SWA under the lights which always promises to be a special atmosphere.

“I’m really excited because the few Friday night games I’ve had at Tranmere have all been really good. It’s another chance for us to go out there and continue what we’ve been working on a on hopefully go out there and put on a good show. 

“I think the game will be similar to last weekend really and with us being at home we know the playing surface is going to be a lot better for us especially with how we’re trying to play. 

“Harrogate are obviously fighting for their lives but that’s not to say we’ve got nothing to fight for. Everyone has something to play for and everyone has a point to prove at this football club so we need to be at it and really go for it.

“The season is not over until it’s over and we’re in a situation where we don’t know who the manager is going to be next season so you’ve got that to think about as well as players being out of or in contract so there’s that to think about too so you’ve always got something to play for. You need that mentality and I think we’ve got that here.”
