TRANMERE Rovers will have an eighth win in their sights when they face Oldham Athletic in a re-arranged League Two fixture at Boundary Park tonight.

Micky Mellon's men, who are fifth on the table, are four points off the top three automatic promotion positions after Saturday’s 3-0 home triumph over Carlisle United at Prenton Park.

Oldham head to the game off the back of a 2-0 triumph at home to Grimsby Town on Saturday.

Tonight's match was postponed on March 16, because of a waterlogged pitch.

In an interview on the club's website, Rovers manager Micky Mellon said: "We knew that these three games were going to be massive for us, we took them in little chunks, but we've got over the first hurdle now, we'll now get ready and go over to Oldham which will be a hell of a game.

"It will be a really difficult game.

"They gave us a real good tough test over here and there was no quarter given so we know that we will go over there, and it will be very tough.

"We're going to have to be absolutely at our best, we're going to have to play at a real good intensity and fight for everything in order to try and get something out of the game.

"Hopefully, the players will go there with something to fight for but if we don't hit those intensity levels and do our jobs, then it will very quickly come to an end.

"We'll look forward to it, it should be a great atmosphere, we're taking a massive support over there, hopefully we'll have a good evening and we can get cracking with that one."

Luke McCullough limped off ten minutes into the game against Carlisle and it is not yet known if he will be available for tonight's game.

Ishmael Miller still remains on the sidelines for Tranmere Rovers.
