Alan Rogers looking forward to Tranmere Rovers challenge

23 April 2015

Alan Rogers is looking forward to taking charge of Tranmere Rovers in their crunch clash with Plymouth Argyle this weekend.

Previous manager Micky Adams departed Prenton Park last Sunday after a 3-0 home defeat to Oxford United, so Rogers and academy coach Shaun Garnett have stepped up take the reins for Rovers' final two matches of the season.
And, with Tranmere sitting bottom of Sky Bet League 2, Rogers' focus is fully on the first challenge – a trip to Play-Off-chasing Plymouth Argyle.

"We'll look to do a few things differently and we'll see where we go. We're both looking forward to the game and the challenge,” Rogers told the club's official website.

"Our focus is moving forward and on the Plymouth game, to get the base right, tweak a few things and we'll go to Plymouth to try and win the game.

"We've been in to work on different ways we can get the best out of the players we have available. We're confident that we can go to Plymouth and leave ourselves with a fighting chance.

Tranmere are two points from safety with two to play, and the 38-year-old is aiming to get a result down in Devon that will give the fans hope on the last day of the season, when they host high-flying Bury.

"The fans have been unbelievable, the club's been in decline for a long time and they've suffered. Our hope is give them something to cling onto at Plymouth.

"They deserve better than what they're seeing, but hopefully we can perform a minor miracle and keep us in the league and then build on it.

“We've just got to try and stay in this league and live to fight another day."
