Tranmere: Ash Taylor eyes home improvement in relegation battle

Ash Taylor

Ash Taylor says Tranmere must improve their home form to increase their chances of avoiding relegation.

From 15 home fixtures in League One, 17th-placed Rovers have taken just 14 points - the fewest in the division.

"I just think confidence is a little bit low at home," the 24-year-old centre-back told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"You have to win your home games and we have to make this place a fortress again because it used to be. We used to be so hard to beat at home."

Ronnie Moore's side have been in relegation trouble for much of the campaign and are two points above the drop zone with 16 games to play.

Only 10 points separate Sheffield United, who occupy the final relegation spot, and MK Dons in ninth.

"The main thing is to get back-to-back wins and it pushes you higher up," added Taylor. "It's just consistency and getting those back-to-back wins. It's so tight and you can't call it."

Everton winger Matthew Kennedy, who has played six times for Tranmere, has extended his loan spell at the club by a further month.
