Shaun Pearson spoke to WAFC Media Team's Richard Griffiths about the Tranmere game, and the enormity of this weeks fixtures...
“I think it was a fair result – it was always going to be a good game between two teams that have come into form at the right time of the season. The good thing was that we looked like scoring perhaps two or three more goals, which has really come to the fore lately – I think that’s eleven goals in the last four games which is really pleasing.
Earlier in the season that was something we were struggling with, but now it feels as though we don’t need to keep a clean sheet to win a game and if we do concede, we can still go on to win two or three – one. Hopefully we can take that confidence into the next two away games, as they’re a big opportunity for us.
Gateshead is always a tough place to go – I’ve played there a couple of times. They were struggling for a while, but they are on a good little run. They picked up a win on Saturday, so hopefully they’re due a loss and we can go there and if we can get three points there it will be massive for us setting up the weekend when not many other teams are playing.
We’ll get Tuesday night out of the way and then we’ll concentrate on Guiseley on Saturday – they’re a team fighting for their lives, they’ve not picked up a lot of points lately. Every game seems to be the odd goal or a draw for them, so they are obviously giving teams good games, so they will be tough. It’s up to us to go there and do a job, and hopefully get three points.
By the end of the week we will go from a game behind most teams to a game ahead so it’s a massive opportunity for us. Hopefully it will give us the chance to put pressure on the teams around us and maybe even get ourselves on top of the pile.
If we have a great week and pick up six points, it will make the point against Tranmere even better."
