Tranmere Rovers' Martin Devaney targets top eight

Devaney is delighted with Rovers start to the season

Tranmere Rovers winger Martin Devaney says the club are hoping for a top eight finish in League One this season.

Devaney, a summer arrival from Walsall, has been an ever-present member of the Rovers side that have taken 10 points from a possible 15.

"He (Rovers manager Les Parry) spoke of trying to get in and around the top seven or eight," the 31-year-old wide-man told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"Things are going well at the moment, we just need to keep it going."

Tranmere are unbeaten at Prenton Park this season and are still in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Devaney believes the positive start the club have made has helped create a real feel-good factor.

"We're really pleased at the moment, things are going well for the team," he said.

"I think everyone who is supporting the club at the moment must be on a high," added Devaney.

Ambitions of a top eight finish would appear optimistic, given last season's struggles, which saw Rovers finish 18th.

But Devaney believes it is now time for a fresh start with fresh expectations.

"Winning games brings expectations and that good vibe in the dressing room every day.

"I don't know anything about last year, all I'm concentrating on is what I can achieve with this team this year," said Devaney.

"Whatever happened last season has gone now, it's about this season."
