Match Preview: Salford City

9 October 2020

Tranmere Rovers take on Salford City in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon, seeking back-to-back victories in the division under manager Mike Jackson. 
 
The Whites are unbeaten in their previous three fixtures in all competitions heading into this encounter, while Graham Alexander’s side are yet to taste defeat in League Two this campaign.
 
Team news 
Jackson provided injury updates on a number of first-team players during his pre-match press conference, with Morgan Ferrier, Corey Blackett-Taylor, Stefan Payne and Liam Feeney all expected to miss out. 
“We’ve had a bit of bad news on Stefan Payne. He got injured in training on Thursday: he went into a tackle and slipped at the same time. It doesn’t look a good one, so we’re still waiting to find out a little bit more about that,” said the Rovers’ boss. 
He added: “Kaiyne Woolery is going along OK, but is still touch-and-go. Corey has had a week of training, but it might just be a little bit too early for him. Morgan Ferrier is still a little bit away; he’s had a little bit of a setback with his. Liam Feeney has come along well and is hopefully trying to do a bit of training next week.”
