Tranmere goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams says his team's performances should result in them closing the gap on the League One leaders this season.
Rovers are currently 11th in the table after drawing 1-1 with top-of-the-table Charlton on Saturday.
"We've been competing away from home with them, not at home," Fon Williams told BBC Radio Merseyside.
"That shows how we are and how together we are as a unit. All the lads are pulling together which is really good."
He added: "These are top teams and they're the teams who expect to go straight up."
Tranmere make the short journey to Accrington for the second time in two weeks to play their second round Johnstone's Paint Trophy match, which was called off last week due to the serious injury to Stanley defender Tom Bender.
Rovers were leading the game 2-1 when the game was abandoned, and Fon Williams believes his side were firmly on top.
"We dominated the game there and even their manager [John Coleman] said how well we played against them," the Welshman continued.
"We carried that performance into Saturday's game and we are so disappointed to come away with a point, but again it shows how good a team we are.
"We'll put this game to bed and focus on the game we've got coming up against Accrington Stanley."
