Joss Labadie confident Tranmere Rovers will find form

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Joss Labadie says the side can turn their poor form around at Swindon Town on Saturday.

Les Parry's side have lost their last three fixtures and are only one place above the League One relegation zone.

Labadie told BBC Radio Merseyside: "We can get results against big teams as we did with Peterborough and we got a draw against Brighton, so we won't be fazed.

"We're going to go down there and try to win. We'll be going into it as any other game and we'll be confident."

Those three successive defeats - two in the league and the other in the northern area semi-final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Huddersfield - have coincided with the absence of the 20-year-old, who has been serving a three-match suspension for his sending off for violent conduct in the 1-0 win over Notts County in November.

Labadie says he wants to put the incident behind him should he return to the side at the County Ground.

"It was something I wasn't proud of doing and I let the fans, the manager and myself down," said Labadie. "I'm determined not to let that happen again and I'm going to put things right on Saturday.

"I'm buzzing to be back and I just want to get back into the swing of things. I've had a couple of injuries and suspensions and the season hasn't gone as nicely as I would have liked.

"These things are sent to test us and these things happen. Hopefully I'll get a clear run of games now, hit some form and help the team progress."
