Under 2.5 goals double looks like the value.

Two sides in decent form face off in the Used-To-Be-In-Cheshire Derby

With County's management team and a couple of the squad being ex-Tranmere, it will fail to add any spice to the game since they're actually well-regarded

Be an interesting one tonight for us on the back of three straight wins. Are we a decent team or will we be sent back down to earth with a bump?

Rovers revert to a back 5 to mirror Stockport. Lewis and long-term absentee Tom Davies fit enough for bench duty, but one or two of the other selections a surprise. Still thinking away win.

2-0 down already, game over. Commentary calling it a shambles at the back.

Barrow certainly seem to have recovered from their blip.

Two teams cancelling each other out at Prenton Park

County had the better of the chances but nothing truly clear cut

Tranmere very solid but also very defensive minded for a home team.

But agree we haven’t done enough to say we deserve to be ahead.

Second half Tranmere looked more dangerous on counter and we had a few decent chances to win it right at the end as well but you felt like this one was destined to end 0-0.

Tranmere had a lot of pace at the back and we have very little up top and that was why we struggled to break them down and create clear cut chances I felt.

The only bad thing tonight was that we allowed Colchester to get a consolation goal in injury time - Colchester made Crewe look like a Champions League team.

Yeah except for the madness in injury time, it was the same story as the first half. Tranmere had the best two chances, but County created the most pressure. Would have taken a point beforehand, not a memorable game

A draw fair, Rovers with Lewis probably had the best chance of the night, but Stocky had more of them. Think a reset was needed after the Carlisle game but hope we don't play 532 every game.

That was more leisurely than a training game - never mind second gear, not sure we needed to get out of first. Not that we created much really, but it never felt like the result was in any doubt. Colchester started playing when the injury time board went up. Way worse than Scunthorpe last season.

Look out for the highlights - you won't see a better hat-trick than Billy Waters' today.

Can't complain about 9 points in 8 days!

Watched ours on the stream.

Two mid table sides battling out a 0-0. Probably a slightly better result for us as the away side.

Aye you guys definitely played it as a 532 rather than a 3412. Very solid but ball progression suffered a lot because of that.

Colchester were woeful, relegation certainties based off that. They looked worse than us last season and we were dreadful. Not a single player stood out.

Awesome hat-trick for Billy Waters, firing them in from all areas of the pitch. Glad we were comfortable there as it felt like the sort of game we'd slip up in after a few good results. Holker Street is finally a difficult place to come after getting our bellies tickled every week for two years.

A draw was probably fair overall, but I am disappointed we did not win after the chances we created in the second half.

The first half was about containment after such a poor display on Saturday, and County had the better of the possession and looked more composed. However, after half time I thought we were the pacier and more dynamic side and created two or three really good opportunities, largely through brilliant wing back play from Ethan Bristow.

That is the biggest Stockport following I can remember at Prenton Park in forty years of supporting, so it is good to see them back on their feet as a club.
