Match Previews

Preview: Fleetwood Town (A)

22 November 2019

Setting the scene…
Tranmere Rovers return to Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon when they visit Fleetwood Town.
 
Micky Mellon takes his side to Highbury Stadium for the 3pm kick-off, where Joey Barton’s Cod Army await.

Rovers triumphed in an Emirates FA Cup first-round replay away to Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday night, with Morgan Ferrier and Kieron Morris on target in the extra-time victory after seeing Kane Wilson sent off.

Fleetwood, who are eighth, welcome Rovers to the Fylde Coast following wins against Barnet and Oldham in the Emirates FA Cup and Leasing.com Trophy.

Team news
Kane Wilson was sent off in Wednesday’s win at Wycombe, so the right-back will be suspended this weekend. David Perkins, Liam Ridehalgh and Neil Danns could be in line to play.
 
Mark Ellis, Evan Gumbs, Ishmael Miller, Ollie Banks and Jordan Ponticelli are also unavailable through injury.

One to watch
Forward Paddy Madden leads Fleetwood’s goalscoring charts so far this season with ten goals.

The Irishman began his career with Bohemians, winning the League of Ireland in 2009 and the Setanta Sports Cup in 2010.
 
He joined Carlisle United for an undisclosed fee in January 2011 and clinched another medal in the Cumbrians Football League Trophy triumph that May.
 
Spells at Yeovil Town, who he won promotion with in 2013, and Scunthorpe United followed, prior to his Fleetwood move in January 2018.
 
Madden, 29, has become a key part of Barton’s side, and has made over 80 appearances, netting 35 times.

Match Reports

Report: Fleetwood 2-1 Tranmere

23 November 2019

A late second half goal from Paul Mullin wasn’t enough for Tranmere Rovers as Fleetwood claimed all three points with a 2-1 victory. Goals from Josh Morris and Paddy Madden sealed the win for the hosts either side of half time.

Tranmere drafted in Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy for the game against Fleetwood Town, Kane Wilson missing out through suspension and Stefan Payne on the bench.

The visitors, donning their purple away strip, made a positive start on the Fylde Coast with Hepburn-Murphy finding pockets of space in the opposition half. His strike partner Morgan Ferrier, fresh off his goal at Wycombe on Wednesday, nearly nicked in on goal but was denied at the final stages by Harry Souttar.

In the 14th minute, Fleetwood went ahead after a free-kick from the edge of the penalty box by Morris was curled into the top corner.

Tranmere did not let their heads drop after conceding and continued to play positively, showing warning they could threaten the Fleetwood defence.

In a tactical change, Micky Mellon introduced Corey Blackett-Taylor for George Ray in a tactical change by the away side. The impact was immediate, Blackett-Taylor beating Lewie Coyle on the flank and putting a cross in for Hepburn-Murphy but his header went just wide.

Tranmere, roared on by a sold out away crowd, were out singing the home support and right behind their team. Mellon’s men made a positive start to the second period, with the pace in attack causing concerns, Blackett-Taylor again outdoing Coyle but his shot from the edge of the box was pushed away by Billy Crellin in the Town goal.

Fleetwood made two changes with Paul Coutts and Wes Burns replaced Ashley Hunter and Ched Evans.

Evans’ first attempt came on goal in the 64th minute, picking up a high pass to crash a shot against the side netting. Tranmere made their second change before the goal kick was taken, Darren Potter replaced by David Perkins.

A deflected cross from Borthwick-Jackson nearly caught goalkeeper Crellin off guard but at the last second he parried away.

However, despite all of Tranmere’s hard work, as Madden slotted home Town’s second, a sucker blow for Rovers.

Tranmere’s hard work earned them a goal in the dying stages courtesy of sub Paul Mullin but unfortunately it wasn’t enough as the hosts claimed the points.

Tranmere: Davies, Nelson, Monthe, Ray (Blackett-Taylor), Caprice, Borthwick-Jackson, Hepburn-Murphy (Mullin), Ferrier, Potter (Perkins), Jennings, Morris. Unused subs: Pilling, Woods, Payne, Maddox.
