Dawes looking for ‘strong as possible’ finish ahead of Wimbledon game

Ian Dawes spoke to the local media to preview Tranmere’s trip down south to Plough Lane and AFC Wimbledon.

His side chalked up a huge three points last time out, as they comfortably dispatched Grimsby Town 2-0 at Prenton Park, and a sense of momentum and good feeling seems to be coming back.

“Momentum is important, I think that you find when teams are winning games at the end of the season, you can take that through into the start of next season, the majority of the players in the group are signed-up for next season so we’ve got to finish as strong as possible, we’ve got six points to play for and we want to take all six.

“We’ve got to make sure that we start to get consistency moving forward and I think you find the teams who are successful in this league can string wins together, so we need to make sure that we start building that on Saturday and if we can get back-to-back wins then it’s a start.

Dawes also recognises the fans, who travel in their numbers week in and week out.

Some of their vocal support hasn’t been rewarded, but by Dawes, it doesn’t go unnoticed.

“We are working with the group day-to-day to try to make them better as players and as individuals, and prepare them for the next game, so our focus is getting three points at the end of it and you can see the players and staff are trying their utmost to do that for the club and the fans.

“The one big thing for us on Saturday is the fans haven’t had enough long journeys where they can celebrate on the way back, it’s the last one of the season so we have to make sure that they can go and enjoy it.”
