FROM THE GAFFER

“Tranmere on a Tuesday night away from home is always a difficult game and they have players who can hurt you in attack and they have good experience in the middle of the park. They are managed by Micky Mellon who has good experience and he is a good manager. We are in a good frame of mind though after the run of results we have been on,” Darren Ferguson said.
