Manager's Preview

Opposition View 

Tranmere manager Micky Mellon has told Tranmererovers.co.uk that his side already have all the determination they need heading into Saturday's clash despite dropping points in their last two league outings;

"I don't think we can be any more determined, I think the players have given it everything they've got and they'll continue to do that.

"If they have any more determination in them and they hadn't been using it you could question them, but they've always been a very determined group that works very hard and we'll continue that into Saturday."
