EXCLUSIVE – Scott Davies: “There’s enough experience in the dressing room to know that you can only ever deal with what’s in front of you”

By George Williamson

Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies insists the Rovers players know what’s at stake as their season boils down to the final nine games.

The Super Whites sit 3rd in the National League table, and with a possible 27 points still to play for, Davies is adamant the team know what’s at stake and how to achieve it.

He said: “As players, we all know (what’s at stake).

“There’s enough experience in the dressing room to know that you can only ever deal with what’s in front of you and take things one game at a time.

“You win that one and you just never know where it’s going to take you down the line, so we just have to make sure we keep doing that.

“I think (top spot) still has to be (the aim).

“I’ve been in and around football long enough now to know that things turn around quite quickly.

“All we can do is win our games and if we do that you never know where it can take you.

Scott Davies: ““I think (top spot) has to be (the aim).”

“Nine games, there’s still a lot of games to play so if we can take 27 points from them you just never know.”

Rovers go into this weekend’s game off the back of a resounding 4-0 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge, and Davies thinks the result tells you all you need to know about the win.

He said: “I think the result speaks for itself.

“We defended well, were clinical at the other end of the pitch and clean sheets are obviously important at this stage of the season, so if we can keep them it gives you a platform to go and win games.

“I thought the forwards did well and took the chances well so we’re happy all round.”

Drissa Traore deputised for the club in that game after joining on a short-term contract from Forest Green over the winter break.

He links back up with former team-mate Manny Monthe, who also joined from the League Two side on loan a mere weeks ago, and Davies feel the two of them have helped each other settle into the group.

He said: “It’s helped the pair of them that they knew each other but I do think we’re quite an easy group to come into.

“We’re welcoming and they’re a good set of lads here so they’ve both settled in well and both did well on Saturday.”

Next up for Rovers is a tough away game at fellow promotion chasers, Boreham Wood, and Davies knows he’ll be in for a busy game against the 6th-placed side.

He said: “They’ve scored quite a few goals this year, haven’t they?

“They’ve got some good players so we’re looking forward to it, it’s a challenge.

“It’s another big game, but come this stage of the season they’re all big games and the points aren’t to be sniffed at so we have to go down there, do a job, and hopefully get the points.”
