We really need three points from this game, will not be easy, Tranmere have really picked up since the Physio got the managers job and they had a fantastic result against Southampton on Saturday. Their pitch is awful as well, so it will be route one, something we have got used to since the pitches have looked rubbish.

We defo need a win with two really hard games coming up after this one.
AndyCapsXI
The bookis see it as pretty even an so do I. Ian Moore seems to like scoring against us and scored the wnner last season over there and given our current poor form caused by a leaky defence I am not hopeful but not confident. Four points from our next two games would be a result and three wouldnt be a disaster.
erni
Nothing else matters but 3 points
Tiny T
Feel confident that we are going to take three points.
