TRANMERE manager Nigel Adkins is hoping his side can continue their excellent away form when they travel to struggling Doncaster Rovers. 

The Yorkshiremen sit 22nd in the League Two table with Grant McCann's side needing an injury time equaliser to salvage a 1-1 draw at bottom club Sutton last time out. 

Tranmere, meanwhile, have won three of their last four on the road, most recently beating Grimsby Town 2-1 at Blundell Park before a goalless draw with Crewe Alexandra at Prenton Park last weekend.

Adkins' men also progressed to the semi finals of the Liverpool Senior Cup in midweek with a straightforward win against Warrington Rylands to cap a positive week for the squad.

“It was an excellent game against Crewe," said Adkins. "Although we only got a point from it, we've got a clean sheet and we've been after more clean sheets. 

“Then we go to Tuesday night with the Liverpool Senior Cup against Warrington Rylands and we now progress to the semi-finals.

"It was a great opportunity to progress some of the younger players and get the collaboration between the college and the first team.

“I was really pleased that Neil Danns prepped and led the team as part of his development. He did really well."

Adkins praised the mood in the camp after a run of form that has seen Rovers move away from the relegation zone and into mid-table safety. 

“I think we've shown since November we've had a real good level of consistency," he said. "I think we’re just shy of two points a game, which is promotion winning form since November.

"I think we're the third leading goal scorers in the division, so we score goals. We've got a belief that we can win any game. We’re very mindful and very respectful of the opposition, because this has been a tough division. 

“It's not about one individual, it's about the team. Together everyone achieves more, and we've been doing it consistently. That is now consistently backed up with a run of positive results.” 

Adkins will be reunited with some of his old players on Saturday with the experienced manager wary of the threat battling Doncaster will present. 

Adkins said: “Every game's a challenge and obviously I know Grant McCann, and Cliff Byrne - both played for me previously at Scunthorpe United and they've had a real good coaching career so far.

"I know they're being expected to do really well this season, they were well backed in the summer window, but I know that they've had challenges to overcome. 

“We know it's going to be a very committed game," he added. "We've got to be ready for that. We've got to expect the unexpected, maybe they will change formation, maybe they will change the personnel that they've got. They've got to try and find the next way to go and win a game of football, whereas we've been able to keep a bit of consistency, but we seriously have to be very, very mindful.”
