TRANMERE Rovers' National League campaign continues with an away game against table leaders Forest Green tonight.

The match, at New Lawn is one of two Rovers face this week. They are at home to Torquay on Saturday.

Micky Mellon's squad, third on the table, are unbeaten in the league with five victories and one draw from his six matches in charge.

A spectacular second half volley by Andy Cook won Rovers all three points in a 1-0 victory against Braintree Town on Saturday.

Tonight's opponents Forest Green are six points above third-placed Tranmere with an extra-game played.

They were beaten 3-2 at home against Lincoln City last Saturday, only their third defeat of the season and their first on home ground.

Rovers' boss Micky Mellon is without both Lee Vaughan and Jay Harris who miss out with one-match suspensions after collecting five yellow cards so far this season.

Also out of action are suspended Lee Vaughan and Jay Harris, but James Norwood and Ben Tollitt are available again having served their bans.

During a press conference ahead of the game, an optimistic Mellon said: "It’s a great challenge for us to go down to the top of the league, and we’re really looking forward to it.

"It's these games that you want to be involved in.

"It would be huge to gain three points on them.

"There’s a lot of football still to be played but a win tomorrow would be fantastic for us.

"Promotion won’t be won but there’s a valuable three points on offer for both clubs to fight for and we want to give ourselves the best opportunity to claim those points."

Looking to Saturday’s game, he added: "We have had them watched to see how well they performed at the weekend, so have some idea of what we will be up against when they come to Prenton Park.

“But at the moment, we are taking each game at a time.”

On Norwood’s return to the squad, he continued: “I’ve only had James in the squad for 20 minutes since I took over, so it will be great to have him back.”
