Tranmere captain John Welsh believes the club can look forward to a successful season after a positive start to their League One campaign.

Rovers are 10th following Saturday's 2-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

"That was the crucial thing, to get a good start and a couple of wins," Welsh told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"The last couple of years I've been here we haven't started as well as we have this year. The club's moving forward and we're moving up the table."

Welsh continued: "There was a lot of pressure on the lads and we knew we couldn't lose the game against Wycombe. It probably wasn't our best performance but it was a winning performance.

Welsh praises Rovers' winning mentality

"If we play like that every game from now until the end of the season and get promoted, I don't think many people would be too disappointed. We just need to keep going and go to Preston next week and see what happens."

Striker Enoch Showunmi gained many plaudits for his goal and performance in the weekend's victory, but Welsh also had words of praise for defender Ash Taylor, who also got on the scoresheet.

"As the game went on I thought Ash got better and better, and he capped it off with a brilliant goal as well," Welsh continued.

"Credit to the kid as he has been under pressure, but he turned it around and showed what a good player he is."
