Wirral Globe: Rovers take on Yeovil Town tomorrow Rovers take on Yeovil Town tomorrow

TRANMERE Rovers' League One campaign continues with a match against Yeovil Town at Prenton Park tomorrow.

It comes a week after Rovers defeated Notts County 1-0, following what manager of the month Ronnie Moore called their "most complete performance” of his reign.

His squad are four points clear at the top of League One and unbeaten in 17 matches at Prenton Park. At home this season Moore’s side have won four and drawn one.

Yeovil come to Wirral 13th place on the League One table with 13 points from 11 games. Away from Huish Park Gary Johnson’s side have won two and lost three.

Moore will be without a trio of first team regulars for tomorrow's game.

Andy Robinson misses out with a hamstring injury, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro has a broken foot and Owain Fon Williams is on international duty with Wales.

Ian Goodison could be in the squad for the first time this season after completing the full 90 minutes of a behind closed doors friendly against Blackpool earlier this week while Jason Mooney is set to make his debut in goal.

Saturday’s 1-0 away victory over fourth-placed Notts County had the boss reaching for the superlatives as he praised his squad’s "fantastic" performance.

Ronnie is keeping his feet firmly on the ground, however: "Our aim at the start of the season was to get to 50 points.

"That’s still the thing for me, and if we can get 50 points before April then we’ll look at it again and see where we are from there.

"Saturday was probably the most complete performance we have had since I’ve been here.

"When you consider Notts County are a big club with 30 players and a massive budget, for us to go there and beat them was fantastic.

"I don’t think out keeper had a save to make all day. It shows how good we were that on another day we could have had three of four goals."

Saturday’s result followed a mid-week victory when Rovers beat Scunthorpe 3-1.

Ronnie added: “It was a big week and we took six points from the two games, which was fantastic. It just proves that anything can happen in football.

“You’ve got to have belief in your ability and the lads are just riding the crest of the wave and enjoying themselves, but I’d hate to think that any of our players were complacent.”
