TRANMERE Rovers take on Woking in their first home game of the new season at Prenton Park tonight.

The match, kicking off at 7.45pm, follows Saturday's 0-0 draw away at Torquay United.

In an interview on the club's website, manager Micky Mellon said his squad was looking forward to being back on home turf.

Assessing tonight's opponents, he continued: "Woking will be a different proposition to Torquay and they'll be looking forward to playing at Prenton Park.

"But we are too.

"We've done our due diligence and had them watched.

"They had a good result on Saturday against Gateshead, so we know where their threats are and we’ll need to work hard to get the result we want."

Mellon will also make some changes to his team after the seding of off defender Steve McNulty and striker James Norwood during Saturday's game.

He said: "We'll need to make changes in personnel, but we're looking forward to playing at Prenton Park again and having the support of the fans.

"There are different tests in every game but they are all tough." 

Mellon also paid tribute to the Super White Army, with 492 supporters making the long journey to Torquay United last weekend to witness the opening game of the new season.

He added: "The fans are a different class. They get right behind us, as they did on Saturday, and it's a big help for us.

"The lads showed that they're prepared to battle all the way for the fans and I think they appreciated that and showed magnificent support all the way through.

"The impact the fans have on us is huge.

"They create a great atmosphere at the ground and make it an intimidating place for opposition teams to come to, and that's of great benefit to us.

"I think everybody enjoyed the atmosphere which was created here last season and that will play a big part if we're going to be successful."
