Match Preview: Salford City

12 November 2019

Setting the scene…

Tranmere Rovers host Salford City under the Prenton Park lights in the Trophy Group C Northern section tie, kick-off 7:45pm.

Micky Mellon’s men are already through to the knockout stages of the competition, as are the visiting Ammies.

Both sides were involved in Emirates FA Cup action last Saturday, with Rovers drawing 2-2 at home to Wycombe Wanderers, while Salford also were forced into a replay in a 1-1 stalemate with Burton Albion.

Team News

Evan Gumbs, Mark Ellis, Harvey Gilmour, Jordan Ponticelli and Ollie Banks are all absentees for the visit of Salford.

One to Watch

Forward Adam Rooney became a Salford City player in July 2018 when he linked up with Graham Alexander’s Ammies from Scottish top-flight outfit Aberdeen for an undisclosed fee.

Rooney started out at Stoke City, moving to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2008, where 44 strikes in over 100 games saw Birmingham City sign him in 2011.

Spells at Swinton Town and Oldham Athletic followed before Rooney netted 66 times in 151 appearances for Aberdeen between 2014-2018.

Scoring 21 goals as the Greater Manchester club were promoted to Sky Bet League Two last term, Rooney, 31, has become a key member of the side since arriving at Moor Lane.
