Match Preview: Salford City

11 January 2022

It’s a fast turnaround from Saturday’s sixth successive Sky Bet League Two win as Rovers travel to the Peninsula Stadium to face Salford City.

The fixture was previously scheduled to be part of our festive games but was postponed due to Covid and has been quickly rescheduled meaning the games are now coming thick and fast for Micky Mellon’s men.

After comfortably winning at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon, Tranmere will be hoping to get another three points on the road after being the in-from team in the division on home soil.

Salford will be looking to put a run of results together and close the gap on the play-off places as they currently sit five points behind seventh-placed Newport County with two games in hand.

Team News:

Paul Glatzel made his comeback from injury in Saturday's win against Scunthorpe whilst Nat Knight-Percival remains sidelined with his injury.

One to Watch: Brandon Thomas-Asante

The 23-year-old winger started out at his home-town club with MK Dons where he spent eight years including 22 first-team appearances. 

Since leaving Stadium MK, the winger has struggled to settle before moving to Salford in 2019 where he has found his feet at the League Two club. 

Making over 80 appearances for the Ammies, he has impressed and matured with age and is the club’s leading goal scorer this season.

He has eight goal contributions in 23 appearances so far this campaign including a goal last time out in a 2-0 win over Newport County.

Manager: Gary Bowyer

Born locally In Manchester, Bowyer has had a number of manager stints in the North with spells with Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool, Bradford and now Salford.

His playing career was cut short at the age just 25 due to injury and after spending a number in and out of the game, he became caretaker manager of Blackburn in 2012.

He then moved onto Blackpool and in 2017, he guided Blackpool to an immediate return to League One after being relegated the previous season.
