Dawes speaks ahead of MK Dons game

Tranmere Rovers’ manager, Ian Dawes, has highlighted that the upcoming visit to MK Dons presents a distinct challenge.

He emphasizes that Rovers aims to maintain the momentum gained from their recent triumph over Barnsley in a penalty shootout on Tuesday. The match against MK Dons is scheduled for this Saturday at 3pm.

As Tranmere return to league action tomorrow, Dawes highlighted the varying styles adopted by teams in League Two.

He explained that this diversity will result in a unique challenge every week during league matches. He specifically emphasized analyzing the challenge posed by MK Dons for the upcoming game.

“Every game is a challenge. The style of play of the teams now is so different, everyone’s style is different. 

“MK Dons play a back three like Barrow did, but they won’t play it in the same style as Barrow did, the way Barrow sit deep and try and counter, it’s going to look completely different. 

“The spaces are in different places, they’ll be up and at them a bit more like Graham Alexander’s teams are, credit to them. 

“It will be a challenge, a different type of challenge, but every game is, it’s just important that we get our organisation right out of possession and our patterns of play that will hurt them when we’re in possession of the ball, and ultimately it’s about getting a result.”
