This Saturday marks Tranmere’s first away game in League 1 since Leyton Orient in April 2014. Rovers will be looking to avoid a heavy defeat against Pompey, a side who are heavily favoured to win promotion back to the Championship this season.
Our first opponents of the new season are fellow North Western side, Rochdale. Dale survived relegation by the skin of their teeth last season and will be hoping to make a swift exit from any potential relegation dogfight.
Covering the 23 sides who we will meet during the season, highlighting their key players, discussing their managers, outlining previous meetings and listing some of their more prominent summer arrivals and departures.
Tranmere went into this season on the back of promotion from the National League and a summer in which we lost prolific striker Andy Cook- a lot of supporters of Rovers and other clubs alike had the Whites down for a quiet season, who could blame them?
From start to finish the SWA backed the lads impeccably, once again. An astounding crowd of 9468 (170 away) rolled into PP today, it’s a shame that we couldn’t get the result we wanted.
