Working this weekend, so I'll miss this. Can't say I'm gutted, going to Prenton Park at present is a real ordeal.

Rovers short-term injuries; Donnelly R, Myrie-Williams and Taylor are in with a chance of making the game. I'd certainly like Rory back, but not stuck out on the wing. If there was one change from Tuesday's game, it would be to replace Dugdale, who's been awful since joining us, with Thompson. Doubtless Adams will make a few, none of them involving Koumas getting anywhere near the starting xi.

Dagenham have been in relegation battles before and are savvy enough to survive. Ex-Rovers loanee Shamir Fenelon has now shipped up in Dagenham and could see him getting on the score-sheet. Rovers really need a win but doubt we'll manage more than a draw at best.

I wish I was working this weekend, but I'm not. So I'm going to Prenton park for some punishment with a big "P" if our current form and team selections are anything to go by.
Actually I think we'll nick this one.

Potentially the biggest game of the season. We are at home, 3 defeats on the spin and losing momentum and confidence daily. This is a chance to get some of that back before a series of games where we have some very tough fixtures. We need a win, but nobody knows which side of us will turn up - the side that battered Accrington, beat Shrewsbury and by all accounts dominated Portsmouth for 75 minutes OR the side that has limply given all our relegation rivals easy wins, scoring 1 goal in the 4 games vs Hartlepool, Carlisle, York and Cheltenham.
I think we will draw.

I don't have an excuse so I'll be there on Saturday.

Lose this and we'll seriously be in the brown stuff come five o'clock tomorrow. Hopefully we'll see a change in tactics from hoofing it up to Odejayi and Power gets a turn at warming the bench in place of Koumas. Won't be too surprised to see Adams pick the exact lineup we started with on Tuesday though.

Fairly sure we'll lose. Have this horrible feeling that Tranmere are joining the increasingly long list of bogey teams that we have.

Draw - But would be happy if Power is on the bench as suggested above. One player of quality when we played down here

That was appalling

Just end the season now and put us out of our misery.

3 of the best League 2 goals you are likely to see (2 for them, 1 for us) and a couple of good hits from bad defending meant a pretty poor match ended with 5 goals.

To sum it up - we are screwed. 11 games left as a Football League club, possibly 11 games left full stop. :(

I can't quite believe we're in this position. Yes, I've joked about Wrexham and Chester away, but until today I never genuinely thought we'd end up actually playing them next year. Seems only yesterday we were away at Oldham singing about being top of league one.
Guess Halifax or Lincoln will be my local games next year.
