Tranmere Rovers captain Steven Jennings was pleased that the side picked up a vital three points on the travels at Eastleigh on Saturday afternoon.

Rovers, backed by 533 travelling supporters at the Silverlake Stadium, secured the win courtesy of James Norwood’s 88th minute header, and Jennings was pleased that the trfcteam were able to send the fans home happy.

He told Tranmere Player: “We knew it was a must win game for us and we never switched off. For long periods of the game, it was end to end, but we took our chance and got the win.

“We had a job to do and had to stay focused on getting the win and thankfully for all the fans who were here, there were loads of them, we got the win for them.”

The chase for a play-off position remains on going into the final game of the season at home against Grimsby Town on Saturday (5:30pm kick-off).

Jennings says it is a nicer feeling to be battling at the top end of the table compared to the feeling over the last two seasons.

He added: “There’s only got one game to go so next week is a big game for us. We have a little mountain to climb and we need a result.

“But going into it off an away performance like this, we have no reason not to put a similar performance in and get the win we need.

“Going into the last game of the season with something to play for in a good way is definitely a positive after the last two years.”
