What are the Tranmere Rovers manager and players saying about the upcoming match with Peterborough United?
Rovers have had a very disappointing start to the season having picked up just one point from their first 9 points. Manager Ronnie Moore believes a lack of voices in his team is partly the reason for their poor start but there is one loud voice in the team as he said to the Liverpool Echo: "Andy [Robinson] will have a pop at any one, that`s the way he is. But he`s the only one in the dressing room who has got anything to say. We have players with good experience in there. It just seems they are waiting for me or for John McMahon [Assistant Manager] to have a pop instead of sorting it out for themselves. They won`t have a go at each other.
"We are like a family. I fall out with my sister and fall out with the missus but we make up and carry on. We don`t go grumping around for three weeks and the same applies in the dressing room.
"That`s a family in there. You want to look after each other and get the best out of each other. If someone is not pulling their weight, you let them know."
Robinson isn`t the only player with a voice in the Rovers camp though. Club skipper James Wallace is also vocal but he is out injured with a knee ligament injury.
"We`ve missed James Wallace both on and off the pitch," Moore says.
"He is a strong character who is not afraid to raise his voice in the dressing room, and we need more of that. They are too nice and polite to each other."
Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams [pictured above] is confident results will start to turn around if they can show the fighting spirit shown in the second half of their recent 2-1 defeat to Crewe Alexandra.
"You can look back at the games we`ve played and we haven`t done so well. But the Crewe game, especially in the second half, how we reacted when we went down to ten men…we showed a bit of fight." said Fon Williams.
"We showed heart and we can take that into the rest of the games. That was the fight we saw last season and we have to do it every game.
"There are better individuals here than last season but it hasn`t clicked as a team yet. Once it does we`ll be on to a flier. It`s just a matter of when it clicks and hopefully it will be on Saturday. We showed at Crewe that we have fight in us and that we can take on teams."
