FORMER Bolton man Jay Spearing believes Tranmere have turned a corner in their season, and is looking to prove it against his old club.

Rovers moved into the top half of League Two after stunning high flying Forest Green Rovers with a 3-2 win at Prenton Park on Tuesday night.

The result elevated Keith Hill's side to 11th in the table, just four points off the play-off positions with a game in hand.

And Spearing believes their performance showed they are capable of posing problems for any League Two opposition.

“If we’re brave enough to get in their (Forest Green) faces and stop them breaking out, then we can cause trouble to anyone in this league," said Spearing, ahead of tomorrow's re-match against his former side.

Tranmere, managed by former Bolton boss Keith Hill, rocked Wanderers with a 3-0 win at the University of Bolton Stadium in December, with goals from Peter Clarke, Kieron Morris and James Vaughan.

It was the perfect response to a 5-0 thrashing at Exeter the weekend before.

Spearing, who spent four years with Wanderers, knows consistency will be key to their ambitions in the second half of the season.

“The gaffer has come in and put his point across as to what he wants to do. There is no rest and we are working hard in training. We want to finish strongly in the last 24 games now," said the former Liverpool, Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers midfielder.

"We now need to find that consistency and start believing in ourselves. It’s a great set of lads we have here and we need to kick on now."

And Hill was pleased with what he saw from his players against Forest Green.

"The attitude of the players to try play the way I wanted them to, it’s progress," he said.

“We’ve not conquered anything and we’re not footballing gods because we’ve won a game, but we’ve played against an excellent side who keep the ball well, attack well and have got stability. I thought we took them on, attacked and got the result."
