Harris fires warning to promotion rivals

Jay Harris warning Tranmere’s promotion rivals that they mean serious business over the next few weeks.

Rovers ended a slump of four matches without a win as they thrashed North Ferriby 4-1 last week.

It was almost the ideal evening for Micky Mellon’s side, as Lincoln lost at Boreham Wood, whilst Dagenham and Redbridge also slipped up.

They then went two points behind the leaders by beating Braintree at the weekend.

Harris, who bagged a hat-trick at Grange Lane, reckons everybody else will be worried about the form they can produce.

“It’s game on,” he said.

“We’ve got to take each game as it comes. Nothing else matters.

“People will be looking over their shoulders at us.

“We’ve got players coming back from injury, like James Wallace and Jack Dunn. They’re good players. We’re only going to get better game by game.”

Harris has had to patient to wait for his chance in the team.

Indeed, he made just one league appearance in three months between December and March.

But his treble at North Ferriby, on top of a stunning goal against Chester a few weeks earlier, have cemented his place in this side.

He admits it has been a tough period, but is just desperate to help Tranmere get back into the Football League.

“We’re a squad,” he continued.

“People will play games and people won’t play games. So you’ve go to keep yourself fit and when the chance arises you’ve got to take it.

“The lads that have come in, like Adam Mekki and myself, we’ve done that and we’ve just got to kick on.

“The gaffer has said from day one that he’s going to change formation and personnel to win each game.

“We’re not going to stick with the same formation or players. That’s what the squad is for. It’s going to benefit us.”
