Captain John Welsh has urged Tranmere to put their best foot forward as they look to end their recent run of dismal form.
Rovers host managerless Rochdale on Boxing Day on the back of six straight defeats in all competitions, and Welsh admits Les Parry's squad are grappling for reasons why their promising early season form has taken such a severe downturn.
"We've got to stay as positive as possible," he told Wirral News. "We are trying to look at the games we did not do so well in and learn from them - see where we can improve.
"In a lot of games recently we seem to do well in the first half and are probably getting the better of most opponents.
"But in the second half we almost seem to be a different team at times. No one can put a finger on it.
"We are trying to look at what's going wrong so we can stop it happening in future games."
