TRANMERE Rovers face Chester FC in what manager Micky Mellon believes will be a tough game at Prenton Park tomorrow.

Rovers, fourth on the table with 36 points, are on a run of four successive league and hope to make it five wins out of five.

Chester come into the derby match following a 5-2 home defeat against Lincoln City last time out. It ended a nine-match unbeaten run which has propelled Jon McCarthy's side up to mid-table, currently sitting in 12th.

Assessing this weekend's opponents, Mellon said: "They are some nine games undefeated.

"We know that they are a very hard-working side, well-organised and have a good manager.

"They will come over here to give a good account of themselves. It's going to be a good game to be involved in.

"We are looking forward to it."

Striker Connor Jennings and midfielder Steven Jennings will be missing from the Rovers squad with knee injuries.

New signings Andy Mangan and Adam Dawson are in line to make their second Tranmere debuts after rejoining the Club in the last few days.
