Brian Little's Men come to the County Ground Tuesday, hoping to inflict more hurt on Swindon Town fan's, after last Saturday's 7-1 humiliation at the hands of Nottingham Forest. This game could decide Swindon's season.
'Similar to ourselves, they have been fighting hard for two months to try and claw away from the bottom. A win for either side is a massive boost. From our point of view it would create some breathing space between at least one other team at the bottom. It would be a great result to go there and win, we're well aware of that.'
Tranmere Manager Brian Little
Swindon HAVE to win this game. The club have lost 3 game's on the trot by big scorelines in all competitions last week. The first team lost 7-1 to Nottingham Forest, The Reserves lost 5-0 to Bristol Rovers and Swindon lost 4-1 to Salisbury City in the Wiltshire Shield. Charlie Comyn-Platt and Paul Smith are out. Jerel Ifil will miss this game due to a 3 game suspension.
After last weekend's shamble's, Captain Sean O'Hanlon need's to rally the troops and get them all on the same page. At Forest the player's became frustrated with each ohter and started arguing with each other on the pitch. A repeat performance of this and Swindon can be resided to relegation.
Unlike our friend's on the Tranmere site we are not going to slate them every way possible. Tranmere Rovers haven't won away since Port Vale on New Year's Eve, so they will be well up for this game, knowing that Swindon are in the middle of a bad run. Rover's have lost their last two games to Oldham Athletic and high flying Barnsley. A win for Tranmere could put them in thirteenth in the table depending on how other results end up.
The midfielder sent a rallying call to his team mate's saying the club 'need a couple of good result's right away' to help the club avoid the drop. Harrison has been with the club since the age of 10.
Tranmere beat Swindon Town 1-0 on 29 August. This was the match when then manager Andy King lashed out at fan's who questioned his tactics after the match.
Officials for this match are: IK Scarr, S Creighton and K A Woolmer. The Fourth Official is J L Cox
Hard to predict really. If Swindon get back to the form of 2 weeks ago, there is no reason why we cannot win this game. But given that Paul Smith and Charlie Comyn-Platt are still out I will have to say a draw will be a realistic result, although not the result we would be looking for.
