Match Preview: Walsall

26 July 2019

Tranmere Rovers’ final pre-season friendly takes place on Saturday afternoon when they host Walsall at Prenton Park, 3pm kick-off.

Rovers return to playing in front of the SWA as preparations continue for the upcoming Sky Bet League One campaign, which commences with a home fixture against Rochdale on Saturday 3rd August.

Micky Mellon’s side were beaten 3-0 away to Carlisle United at Brunton Park on Tuesday night, with Kwame Thomas (2) and Lewis Bell getting the goals for Steven Pressley’s Cumbrians.

Visitors Walsall travel to the Wirral under recently appointed manager Darrell Clarke, seven days away from their opening Sky Bet League Two game away at Northampton Town.

One to Watch

Since coming through the Saddlers’ youth system to turn professional in 2014, midfielder Liam Kinsella has become a key part of Walsall’s set-up.

After spending a decade in academy of the Bescot Stadium outfit, Kinsella made his professional debut during a goalless draw back in August 2014 where he earned the Man of the Match award.

Colchester-born Kinsella, who can play as a full-back or as a defensive midfielder, has since gone on to make 89 appearances for the West Midlands’ men.

In the 2018/19 season, Kinsella turned out 39 times as the club were relegated from Sky Bet League One.

The 23-year-old has also been capped by the Republic of Ireland at U19 and U21 level.


Fancy coming down to Prenton Park and cheering on Micky’s lads on Saturday afternoon when we host Walsall.
