TRANMERE Rovers will aim to put their midweek defeat behind them when they face MK Dons in League One on Saturday.

The match, at StadiumMK, will be the 16th time the two clubs have met with MK Dons holding a ten wins to four advantage.

Earlier this season, Ronnie Moore's squad beat Karl Robinson's side 3-2 at Prenton Park.

Last season's fixture at stadiummk finished 3-0 to the hosts.

Rovers travel to stadium MK in 18th place in League One with 28 points from 28 games, with a win able to lift the club as high as 16th.

Away from home this season, they have won four, drawn two and lost eight. MK Dons are tenth in the division with 36 points from 27 matches.

They were beaten 2-1 by Rotherham at Prenton Park on Tuesday night. Their performance was described by a furious Moore as "abysmal."

In his post-match interview, Moore said: "They've let me down and [let down] the supporters more than that.

"I've had one or two supporters come down to the dugout and tell me to sod off, but if I'd paid my money and seen what was going out on out there I'd be saying the same thing.

"That's the first time in my career where a spectator has had a pop.

"When you put a team out there and they play like that there's only one man who takes the blame for it.

"I thought we were abysmal. I'm disappointed in the commitment and desire.

“We played for five minutes right at the end, it's not good enough.

"I picked the team and put them out there and you expect them to run about and show some desire.

"But nearly every one of them has given the ball away. If you can't pass the ball to each other you're going to be in big trouble.

"We never kept the ball. When we got it we gave it straight back."


Moore hopes to have Liam Ridehalgh back in his squad for tomorrow's game, which starts at 3pm..
