Tranmere Rovers take on Oldham Athletic at Prenton Park
TRANMERE Rovers take on manager Ronnie Moore's former club Oldham Athletic in League One action at Prenton Park tomorrow.
The match, starting at 3pm, will be the 72nd time the two clubs have met in the league, with the visitors holding a 29 wins to 26 advantage.
Rovers were beaten 1-0 by Yeovil Town at Huish Park last Saturday and are currently sixth on the table with 60 points.
Oldham are 21st on the table and were managed by Moore in 2005.
Last season Rovers won 1-0 at Prenton Park thanks to a goal from Jose Baxter while Adam McGurk's strike gave Moore's side a 1-0 victory at Boundary Park earlier this season.
The last six games against Oldham at Prenton Park have been settled by just one goal, but in 2005-06 Chris Greenacre scored twice in a 4-0 win for Tranmere.
Looking ahead to tomorrow, Moore said this week: "This is a game we have to win; it's a matter of who plays well on the day.
"I'm hoping we can get back to some free-flowing football and there’s no better team to play against.
"I don't want to see 0ldham go down, but one of us has to finish with the points.
"There are ten games to go. I still believe we can get 72 points and stay in the top six. We now need to win four or five of the final games.
"A result on Saturday will get the faith back from our supporters."
Moore was left frustrated by an "out of character" performance that cost Tranmere Rovers their game at Yeovil Town on Saturday.
Reflecting on defeat, which saw Tranmere drop down to sixth position in the league, five points adrift from leaders Doncaster Rovers, he said: "It was an out of character performance by us.
"When you consider how important the game was - probably our most important this season - we were a little bit flat.
"The energy levels were not where they should be and the goal we conceded was poor.
"We've got a five-point gap, with a game in hand, so we have made it hard for ourselves."
Rovers' striker Mamady Sidibe will miss the next three games with his hamstring injury.
Sidibe, on loan from Stoke City, started last Saturday's game at Yeovil but had to be substituted before half time.
Also out of action with injuries are Birkenhead-born midfielder Andy Robinson and Adam McGurk.
