Sky Bet League Two

MEMS Priestfield Stadium

Saturday March 11th

Kick-Off, 3pm


Team News:

Saturday will likely come too soon for Scott Kashket and Robbie McKenzie, although Robbie will be assessed up until the last possible moment. Lewis Walker and Ben Reeves remain out with long-term injuries, while Stuart O’Keefe and Lewis Page are available for selection if needed.


Paul Lewis and Brad Walker recently picked up injuries for Tranmere, and Micky Mellon confirmed that they were long-term, while Kane Hemmings and Kieron Morris remain sidelined.


Manager Comments:

Neil Harris - "We are expecting an organised Tranmere side on Saturday. We will need to be at it."

"We want to get back at it here and the players are excited. We are looking forward to it."


Micky Mellon - "They've started to play really well and get away from the bottom end of the table. I watched them on Tuesday night and they got a draw at Stockport and deserved it.

"They're becoming tough stubborn and tough to beat and they're getting clean sheets so we know it will be a tough game."


Previous Meetings:

Tranmere won the reverse fixture earlier in the season 3-0. Elliott Nevitt, Ethan Bristow and Josh Dacres-Cogley scored for Rovers on the day.

The two sides last met at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium in April 2014. The Gills ran out 2-0 winners thanks to two second-half goals. Bradley Dack opened the scoring in the 78th minute with a stunning volley, and in the dying moments Cody McDonald made it two with Tranmere pushing in search of an equaliser and sending their goalkeeper up for a corner.

It allowed McDonald to loft the ball into the back of an empty net from 30 yards out.
