TRANMERE Rovers' goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams hopes his side will net a win that takes them over the 50-point barrier tomorrow.

The match, against Bury at Gigg Lane, kicks off at 3pm and follows Rovers' 2-0 victory over Exeter City last weekend.

Tomorrow will be the 46th time the two clubs have met in league action, with Bury holding a 21 wins to 11 advantage.

In a statement on the club's website, Owain weighed up their opponents.

He said: "Bury is a tough place to go. They're a good side and they're fighting for their lives.

"We're expecting a really tough game but we don't concentrate so much on the opponents nowadays.

"We just go out there, make sure we do our own job and put in 110%.

"That should win the game for us if we do it.

"The more you go unbeaten the stronger you get physically and mentally. Confidence is the most important thing as a footballer.

"We need to reach that 50-point mark and hopefully it will be Saturday.

"That's the main aim now, then who knows where we'll end up at the end of the season."

Rovers' boss Ronnie Moore was delighted to see his side maintain their unbeaten run with a 2-0 victory over Exeter City at Prenton Park last weekend.

Second-half goals from substitutes Joss Labadie and Jake Cassidy gave Rovers the win and lifted them to 12th in npower League One.

Rovers are just seven games away from the end of the season and are preparing for the weekend.

Saturday's result took Ronnie Moore's unbeaten run as manager to six games.

He said earlier this week: "All the results we have, we’ve deserved. We've got 14 clean sheets now.

"Is that the best in the league? I don’t know, but they surely can’t be far off."

Looking to the end of the season, Ronnie said: "It would be great to go undefeated for the remaining games and it would be magnificent to win them all."
