Joss Labadie wants Tranmere Rovers clean sheets

Labadie is yet to score in 17 appearances for Rovers this season

Tranmere midfielder Joss Labadie believes Rovers must start keeping clean sheets if they are get out of relegation trouble in League One.

Les Parry's side are fourth from bottom, with 16 points from 15 games.

"We must keep a clean sheet in every game and then we've got a chance," Labadie told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I know Brighton are running away with it, but it's quite tight [in the league]. We're going to keep getting points and work our way up the table."

Tranmere advanced to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern area semi-finals on Tuesday after beating Bury 1-0 at Gigg Lane, but the night ended on a sour note for the former West Bromwich Albion man.

The 20-year-old collected his fifth booking of the season against the Shakers for simulation and will miss Saturday's home game with Plymouth through suspension.

"It's a shame and I think it was a bit harsh because he did pull me," Labadie continued. "The referee has given the yellow card and there is nothing I can do about it now.

"I'll have to sit out on Saturday and I'll have to try and get myself back in the team. Everyone is coming back from injury and there is a lot of competition for places, so we'll have to keep performing well to keep our places."
