Tranmere defender David Buchanan says the club is not getting carried away with their good start to the season.

Rovers are fifth in League One after six games, but the 25-year-old says reaching 50 points is the first target.

"When you're winning games it breeds confidence and at the minute we're playing with a lot of confidence," Buchanan told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"Getting to 50 points is the most important thing. I think we have a great chance [to do well]."

He added: "The mentality in the squad and the mindset the manager and the coaching staff have drilled into us as players seems to be standing us in good stead. We're just going into every game trying to get three points."

The former Bury man joined Tranmere in July after a season with Hamilton Academical and scored from 35-yards on his Rovers debut at Leyton Orient.

Buchanan signed a one-year deal at Prenton Park and insists he is playing for his future.

"Every footballer is playing for the next contract," he continued. "Every time you train or play you're trying to do your best to impress the manager.

"But all I can do is influence myself individually and the team with my performances on the pitch. Hopefully the rest will sort itself out in the future."
