Rovers are looking to strengthen home form as they head into 2023 according to midfielder Harrison Biggins.
Half of home matches so far this season have resulted in victories but building form at the Eco-Power Stadium has proven to be difficult with only one league match played since the start of November.
Rovers will see out 2022 by hosting Rochdale at home on Thursday and Biggins is hoping to see a marker laid down for the second half of the campaign.
Biggins on home form:
“We need to be better at home, all round. It was an aim in the summer, being good at home.
“It’s not quite worked out that way. But with the New Year coming around, we need to start picking up results at home and hopefully that starts against Rochdale.
“I love playing here. It’s a great ground and I always like the home games. Getting a couple of goals in front of the home end has been great. Hopefully I can add to that, starting on Thursday.”
On bouncing back from defeat at Tranmere:
“It’s a great opportunity to put things right after what happened on Boxing Day. It was a disappointing day for everybody.
“We’re back at home and we need to bounce back.
“When the games are coming thick and fast, you can quickly put the last one behind you. It’s a good thing.”
On preparing during a quick turnaround between matches:
“We do a lot a video work anyway so we’ve done the work on the opposition and we’ve been out on the grass on both days we’ve been in to prepare for Thursday.
“I struggle usually the day after a game which is just normal. It’s incremental. If you’ve got a game in a couple of day’s time, I’d like to think I’m ready to go.
“Personally, it’s not a problem that we’ve got another game so quickly after the last one. I’m ready to go again, I feel fit and I’m looking forward to it.”
On the test of Rochdale:
“I think you cannot take anyone lightly in this league, whoever you come up against. They’re going to be a tough team to come up against.
“We need to make sure we’re on it and start the game really well.”
