Tranmere Rovers midfielder Robbie Weir says any promotion tilt attempted by Rovers could hinge on their away form in Npower League One.

Rovers have lost just one of their opening six games, after drawing at Prenton Park with Yeovil Town.

Weird believes the club's character, which saw them beat the drop to Npower League Two last season, can help them maintain their spot at the top of the table, especially if they can improve their away form.

"If we win our games at home and win more games away, then hopefully we'll be pushing at the top this year," he said.

"With the players we've got and the team spirit we have, it shows that we can perform away and get good results."

Les Parry's side begin their hunt for more points on the road with a trip to Huddersfield Town, last season's defeated play-off finalists, as they look to close the gap on leaders Milton Keynes Dons.

The Terriers are one of the favourites for promotion this season, however Weir says Rovers should have nothing to fear.


 

"They were unlucky last season not to get promoted," Weir added. "We go up there with our away performances improving, so why can't we go out there and get something?

"In training we've been doing a lot of shape work. Hopefully on Saturday when we go to Huddersfield our shape work will pay off and we can hit them on the break."

Meanwhile, Parry will decide whether the club will delve into the loan market after accessing the fitness of Ian Goodison and Martin Devaney.

The winger was replaced with a hamstring injury during Saturday's draw with the Glovers, while Goodison has a stomach problem.

Parry said: "Both of them certainly won't be training until the end of the week, if at all.

"I won't do anything with the centre-back until later in the week. I need to just make sure we do need a player first of all, but the chances are we will be bringing one in.

"Nobody can sign until Friday, but I've asked, and I will be asking any others, if they could come in and train with us and Thursday and sign on Friday."
