Tranmere face Bolton Wanderers in Capital One Cup second round tonight
TRANMERE Rovers take on Championship side Bolton Wanderers in the Capital One Cup second round at Prenton Park tonight.
The match, starting at 7.45pm, will be the 32nd meeting between the two clubs.
Rovers have won eight of the past matches against Wanderers, including two of three League Cup matches.
John Aldridge's team won both legs of the 1999-2000 Worthington Cup semi-finals to claim a place in the final at Wembley Stadium.
Four seasons ago the two clubs met at the second round stage of the competition with Bolton claiming a 1-0 win thanks to Mark Davies' first half goal.
Away from Prenton Park an extra time goal from Chris Malkin gave Rovers a 1-0 win over Bolton in the 1990-91 play off final.
Tranmere's last away win against the Terriers was a 2-1 victory in the FA Cup third round replay in 2003-04.
Referee Stephen Martin will take charge of tonight's game. His most recent time as referee in a Tranmere game was last season's 2-0 away defeat against Port Vale in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Assisting him will be Andy Hendley and Mark Jones with Peter Gooch the fourth official.
Ronnie Moore's squad were beaten 5-0 by Peterborough United at Prenton Park on Saturday.
They conceded three times before half time and were reduced to ten men following the sending off of Andrai Jones. The visitors sealed the victory with two further goals in the second half.
Rovers were booed and some supporters walked out 15 minutes before the end of the game.
Moore said: "It hurts. Tranmere Rovers don't fall like that. At the start of the game there was nothing in it then a stupid mistake cost us.
"We defended how we've defended all season and that's why I'm looking to bring someone in.
"We thought we had him this week but it didn't materialise. We're not daft, we know where we need to strengthen.
"You can't give a side like Peterborough a goal start. Then you're 3-0 down at half time with ten men against a team that would be hard enough to play against 11 v 11. They work the ball, they've got good movement and pace all over.
"You can't make excuses, we were defensively awful and shambolic at times."
Their League One campaign continues with an away game against Oldham away on Saturday. Kick off 3pm.
