Rovers' boss believes confidence will lead to first away win of year

TRANMERE boss Ronnie Moore believes his squad's growing confidence will earn them their first away win of the year this weekend.

Saturday's League One match against second-on-the-table Sheffield United at Bramall Lane kicks of at 3pm.

It follows Rovers 2-1 defeat of Preston North End at Prenton Park on Tuesday night.

Andy Robinson and Enoch Showunmi earned Ronnie's side their second victory of the year and took them seven points clear of the relegation zone.

It stretched their unbeaten home run to eight games.

Rovers last away win was a 2-0 defeat of Hartlepool in October.

Looking forward to the trip to Sheffield United Ronnie said this morning: "It's a massive game for us and we need to go and win.

"Sheffield are big, strong and they've got quality players.

"We've got to show them we have no fear and got to go there to win."

Ronnie has vowed to turn Prenton Park into a fortress - and he has established a no-nonsense relationship with his players.

They beat Leyton Orient 2-0 last weekend. It was their first victory since beating Bury in December.

Ronnie said: "We've just got to roll our sleeves up. If they give their all, I'll never complain.

"There's been a dramatic change of attitude in the dressing room which is great to see, confidence is growing.

"I think this will help us on Saturday. If we can come back from Bramall Lane with a win, it will only boost that confidence."

"We need nine more points. We'll get to 50 and see where we go from there. Where we get them from doesn't really matter.

"Mid-table's well within our reach, but so is the bottom of the table."
