Going to get this one started a few days before the match on Sat, with a couple of games tonight, let's see where we end up going into this massive game on Saturday. Obviously, Callum and Keiron sit this one out as they start their first round of suspensions after the red card debacle last Saturday.

Micky will have to make some adjustments to the squad with a possible recall for Spearing who has only just come back into the squad after injury.

We are currently sitting 7th just inside the playoff spots but as a reminder, here's the games tonight:

Salford (9) v Vale (3)
FGR (1) v Mansfield (6)

A win for Salford would push us out of the top seven.
Needless to say our game on Sat is one we really have to win due to our poor away record.

Merrie in for mcdonald I guess. I’d like spearing back in but not sure who I’d drop out of OConnor or Warrington. Mcpake hasn’t really shone but he’ll now have 3 games to show what he can do assuming Micky plays him instead of Morris

After Saturdays showing I would not start Spearing he looked well off the pace.

Just noticed both appeals rejected and Morris gets an additional game ban, so looks like both will miss the next 4 games.

Unbelievable

Huge blow that @bigmart
We never do things the easy way though. Have to win this game on Sat otherwise I think it may be curtains.
Agreed, with our away form being so poor we will get overtaken and drop out play offs

It’s just what you’d expect from any kangaroo court.

Vale wnning one nil. Our automatic hopes look slim if they move five points ahead of us.

Yes, I think the current top three will go up now. Exeter and Vale are in very strong form and with key players fit and performing.

Interesting voting so far with only 2 of the 7 opting for a Tranmere win. I think the last game was a big confidence blow.
I voted for a draw. It was nothing to do with last week’s result. We were unlucky and I expect Micky to pull the team together, reminding them of how they played. However, Bristol Rovers are one of the form teams, so a win next Saturday would be massive and I’m not expecting it. However, I expect us to battle to a draw.

Going to be difficult - on form Bristol will win and I fear another FGR turnover TBH whilst hoping for the best. A win would be massive for confidence. The two suspensions will be massively debilitating however. Merrie I assume will be drafted in at LB but we saw Saturday that whilst he can do a job there he isn't ideal when marking Patrick at the short corner and was ghosted past. Spearing also I thought looked well off it Saturday so that is a concern.
Incidentally I have just seen on Twitter that Marine posted Kyle Hayde has been recalled again.
