Return of the Mac?


Could we be about to see the return to first team action of Steve McNulty?

The club captain has been absent from the team since the end of January, struggling with an Achilles problem, replaced by Ben Pringle in the away fixture at Mansfield Town, and he has not featured since.

But the man who played such an integral part in helping Rovers back into the Football League, could be back into the reckoning for the final few games of the season to try and help Tranmere to another promotion, potentially adding another league climb to his impressive CV.

Injuries have hit Micky Mellon’s squad hard in recent weeks. And in the defensive positions, in particular, Rovers are at their bare bones with Mark Ellis out for the season with a cruciate knee ligament injury, plus Evan Gumbs and Sid Nelson struggling following Easter Monday’s game at Lincoln City.

McNulty’s return to fitness and health (recovering from illness which has kept him out in recent days) could come at just the right time for Micky Mellon.

If you’re looking for someone who has been there and done it, Steeeeeve is your man. He will bring experience, calmness and leadership into the team and could be just the right man for the types of big games Rovers have remaining in 2018-19.
