Jennings Holds His Hands Up

Jennings Holds His Hands Up

Midfielder Steve Jennings has admitted that Tranmere were extremely poor in the loss to Stevenage last weekend and he knows everyone has to perform much better than that between now and the end of the season as although we may not sit in the relegation places at the moment, it's only by the skin of our teeth following that defeat.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match Jennings admitted that we were very poor on the day and he stated that he doesn't believe any of the players can really take any credit out of the game, because we were well off it.

'I don't think we can take any credit, we didn't turn up. I think I must have had five touches in the first half, it was like a game of tennis for me. When we did try to get on it they closed us down well.'

He goes on to say that the team can't dwell on this, although we have had a fair few bad days at the office this season - too many in fact, and we have to draw a line under it and try and push on because it wasn't a performance anywhere near what we have been putting in lately and we need to bounce back and show the character within the camp that he knows we have to get ourselves the results we want on the back of performances that are more befitting this team.

'We need a lot of character now to get back on the horse, we've got to go Tuesday, come firing out of the traps and have everyone as lively as they can be. We've let ourselves down and we've only got ourselves to blame.'

As is an often reached for cliche on the back of bad results, Jennings himself references the speed to which the Brentford game comes around now in midweek, and says it's perfect for us because we can quickly put right what we got wrong and put it behind us with a positive result on Tuesday night.

We need to return to winning ways and quickly, as whilst others may be struggling, Stevenage certainly look a good bet to not be below us for much longer unless we start picking up wins ourselves.
