They’ve not lost a league game since New Year’s Day, have lost only once since November 18th and just twice since October 21st, but can Tranmere Rovers continue their fantastic run of form and gain promotion back into the Football League?
Since starting the season with six defeats in their first 16 league games, Rovers have overseen a massive turnaround in form that has resulted in them losing just twice in the following 18 fixtures, and with just 12 games left of the 2017/18 season Rovers are well placed in the National League table, sitting just four points off the league leaders Macclesfield in 2nd.
Rovers boss Micky Mellon often emphasises his side’s ability to create chances, and they’ll need to continue to do so if they’re to catch the National League leaders, who they play tonight at Prenton Park in what could end up being a crucial game in deciding the title, or at least, Tranmere’s promotion hopes.
And it’s Rovers’ form at Prenton Park that has helped propel their incredible run of form, with the team having won 12 of 17 games at home this season, drawing twice and losing on just three occasions.
If their great run of form is to propel them into the Football League, Rovers will have to ensure they continue to get the job done at home, particularly as we enter the business end of the season, and that all starts tonight in the huge top-of-the-table clash against Macclesfield Town.
We’ll also be outside the ground pre-match on Tuesday night, asking fans what Tranmere Rovers means to them. Come and say hello!
