Tranmere Rovers defender Jordan Turnbull has highlighted the importance of the side changing their fortunes in recent weeks.
Nigel Adkins’ men have won seven of their last ten League Two matches, including four in a row over the festive period.
Rovers are now 15th in the table, three points off the top half, and travel to 4th place Barrow on Saturday 6th January (3pm kick-off).
“It’s something we needed,” said Turnbull. "We've been really good of late. We feel like we've got a shape that suits us down to the ground.
“Since the gaffer has come in permanently, we've picked up results, and over the festive period it couldn't have gone any better.
“It wasn't too long ago that we were staring at a relegation battle. In the space of 6/7/8 weeks, it’s changed completely. The last ten games, we've been fantastic.
"When you're not winning, no one's enjoying it. Luckily, we have changed our fortunes. Nothing's done yet, we're still not anywhere near where we want to be in the league, but we've certainly got a bit of momentum.”
