TRANMERE Rovers face Chester in pre-season action at the Swansway Stadium tonight.

Manager Rob Edwards is likely to field a mixture of first team squad members and trialists for the game, which starts at 7.45pm.

Liam Ridehalgh is out of action with an ankle injury and Liam Davies is out with a knee injury.

The match is Rovers' sixth of pre-season, while Chester - who include former Tranmere players Gareth Roberts, Danny Harrison and Michael Kay in their ranks - have played games against Marine, Upton, Crewe, Burnley, Witton Albion and Newcastle Town.

Eliot Richards' fourth goal of pre-season earned Rovers a 1-1 draw against Bolton Wanderers a Prenton Park on Friday night.

It followed their 2-2 draw against Everton, also on home soil, three days earlier.

Goals either side of the break from Steven Naismith and Leon Osman weren't enough to get Everton's pre-season off to a winning start as the Blues were held by a solid Rovers side, watched by a crowd of nearly 9,000 spectators.
