Yeovil’s form has dipped a bit after a promising start and they have lost two players to long term injury. Huish Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Rovers in recent times. I’d expect the same starting xi as the win over Macc and the spoils shared.

Seems that Yeovil`s best results this season have been away, the eye ctaching one being the 6 nil at Newport. Does that mean they are due a good home win? Hopefully not. I will be happy with a draw to keep our run of results going

We have a terrible home record at the moment and I don't expect it to improve tomorrow.

With a number of injuries including DJ out for the season and Omar out until New Year we're struggling. Most of the squad members who are fit should at least be rested after the international break but Sessi misses the game through suspension which is a big blow.

2-1 to Rovers.

We've lost the last five games at Yeovil, so history not in our favour. That's why have gone for the draw.

Not much to say, except that it looked a nailed on nil nil pretty much all game. We had the chance to win it at the end, but Norwood missed the one on one. It would have been harsh if either side had found a winner, though. Yeovil have a nice beer tent but yeah, end of summary.

Agree that no one deserved to win that game, it was a pretty poor affair with a lot of niggly fouls. The main thing for us was that Gary Warren's back and immediately our defence looks so much better, Mugabi went from looking completely lost against Exeter to man of the match today, and Baxter has more confidence coming out to claim the ball, we still haven't conceded in any of the games he's started. Tranmere look a solid side and put together some good pieces of play but like us it seemed to fall apart in the final third, although Norwood really should have won it for them at the end.

Poor game between 2 bang average sides. Have to admit I'm a little surprised at Tranmere's position based on their performance, though looked solid enough at the back. Need to get a win soon to keep in touch with the top 7 and a winnable little run coming up.

Crazy how reliant we are on Gary Warren - remember it being fairly similar (though not quite as extreme) with Jamie McAllister when we went up to the Championship.

When Warren hasn't started:
P7 W0 D3 L4
Scored 7 Conceded 15

When Warren has started:
P6 W4 D2 L0
Scored 13 Conceded 0

Good turnout by the Tranmere fans as well I thought.

I thought we were clearly the better side in midfield, perhaps partly because of Yeovil's missing players, and put a number of good passing moves together. However, the final ball was generally poor and I don't think playing Norwood as a lone striker helped us either. We only really created chances after Mullin came on as a second striker.

It feels a bit like an opportunity missed, as it is a match we could have won if we had hit the heights of recent away performances. Yeovil seemed a side really lacking in confidence, and quality to be honest.

The Glovers are still the friendliest club to visit in the League.

Yeah, we had what can only be described as an off day, but we've been a bit short of goals all season to be honest - we've only scored 5 goals at home, but we have 13 points from 21. Away we very much seem to set up for the draw. I can't comment too much on Yeovil, the game was too forgettable.
