Tranmere play their first league game at Prenton Park since early February when they host Cheltenham Town today, a game which could see two players make their debuts.
After a solid but unspectacular start to the campaign so far, Mike Jackson will look to cinch his first win as manager when the Robins come to town. Last week’s goalless draw at Mansfield further demonstrated the strength the team has defensively, but also highlighted the lack of creativity going forward.
Jackson was without both Corey Blackett-Taylor and Morgan Ferrier for that match due to injury, both players also likely to miss out today. We’re hearing whispers that CBT’s absence may be several weeks yet.
But the Tranmere boss moved to bolster the attacking side of things with two more very astute signings this week. Kaiyne Woolery arrived on a free transfer from League Two Champions (by calculator) Swindon Town. Woolery played 39 times for Swindon last season and provided more assists than any other player as they won the league.
The other arrival is experienced attacking midfielder Liam Feeney who comes in on a season-long loan from Blackpool. Feeney supplied a huge amount of assists in League One for the Seasiders last season and looks to be a superb acquisition also.
Once again today’s game is behind closed doors, so we’ll all be following the game through i-follow. Here’s hoping for a big three points to get the fightback well and truly underway.
