It is Grimsby next up for Dawesy's Super White Army.

The Mariners now have a high profile manager in Ian Holloway but have been pretty medicore since regaining Football League status, and this is the kind of game we have to win if we are serious about promotion. With two further home games to follow, there is an opportunity to develop real momentum.

Paul Lewis is apparently back in training, but I expect we will be unchanged from the side that beat Port Vale last week. Woolery and Ferrier both made an impact from the bench in that game, but probably won't make the starting line up. Joe Murphy is available to benchwarm having recovered from illness.

Well after last week's brilliant result and a fully fit team. apart from Liam,s injury, I for one have missed the midweek game Daws and Parky have had a week on the training pitches to get the boys organized a bit more hear is really looking forward to Saturday, such a shame the fans can,t see it. I am going for a good home win not sure of the team but don't think there will be to much change to the team, I am going 3-1

No idea who plays for Grimsby only know there manager, always liked Hollowst seems a character. Think Lewis back in training so only Ridehalgh & Payne missing on going for a win 2 1

Luke Waterfall and Kyle Bennett are the only outfield players I really know, although their keeper McKeown is decent.

They've been pretty poor this season and with an upswing in our performances, I'm hoping we can put a few past them on Saturday.
2-0 Rovers. Vaughan brace.

Dawes said pre match that he doesn’t like changing a winning team but surely O’Connor has to come back in for Nelson.
Ex Bradford Target man James Hanson should have a decent battle with Clarke and Manny if he plays

just want the fun and attacking football to go on for Longer this is what we want attacking football goals goals and more goals, let's have some fun before we go back to either 1 up top or a defensive manager comes in and we go back to normal Tranmere, we all want games where we are hated and we score lots of goals so let's get on the positive Daws Rollercoaster, just remember what cook and Norwood was like Always celebrated in front of the home fans and they hated it we won't more of that bring it on

after my feeble attempt to get the Harrogate home game on I follow (1st half a blank screen) before getting a picture can,t comment on who should play just agree with AM lets keep the run going great to see the reaction after the morris goal at port vale last week seems a real team spirit around the squad at the moment

Looking like it might be a swansong for the Dawes/Parky caretaker bosses. The Mariners won their last league game, home to Barrow and their games have been low-scoring affairs, so not expecting a repeat of last weekend's goal-fest.

It would make sense to start O'Connor at right-back, but otherwise, fitness permitting, stick with the side who came back with all the points from the Potteries.

Feeney and O'Connor return, Lloyd on the bench. Makes sense, as I thought Lloyd was struggling for fitness at Vale.

Pleased feeney back as our most creative player arguably and excellent on set pieces: O’Connor had to come in. Strong looking bench too.

As strong as line-up and bench as you could hope for. Will it translate into a good result or does the managerial uncertain have any impact?

Thought that without a mid week game Lloyd would have been good to go but either way it is a great bench.

Great assist from McDonald who is playing far more forward now

Feeney set piece does the business again as Clarke heads in at the second attempt.

2-0
