Tranmere Rovers look to build on their previous away win as they face Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium on Saturday.

Tranmere have had an unexpected rest, as last week’s fixture against Fleetwood Town was postponed due to weather conditions.

This was the third Tranmere game that has been postponed this season because of a waterlogged pitch.

Despite Rovers’ impressive away victory at Shrewsbury, they remain in the relegation places.

They sit 21st, seven points behind Rochdale. However, Micky Mellon’s men have a game in hand over their relegation rivals. This was also Tranmere’s first league win this year.

Saturday’s opponents Accrington Stanley are 16th in the table and fourteen points ahead of Tranmere, though with two more games played.

Stanley’s form has wavered in recent weeks, failing to beat bottom of the league Bolton Wanderers last weekend and without a win in their last three.

Stanley’s biggest threat going forward is Colby Bishop, who has had an impressive debut season for the League 1 side scoring 11 goals.

The reverse fixture between the two sides resulted in a 1-1 draw, though Micky Mellon will know anything less than a win isn’t good enough if they are to avoid relegation this season.

The game kicks off at 3:00pm at the Wham Stadium this Saturday.
