Another day, another match for Walsall to try and win. I think a few people will see this as an harder test than Crawley on Saturday but Tranmere arent in great form at the moment and our record against them recently isnt too bad so who knows?
Ronnie Moore ''The games that we've lost have been so close and so tight to call. It's not like teams are coming here and murdering us.
'I'll guarantee you that Walsall won't have as much possession as MK Dons had on Friday night.'
Dean Smith 'Tranmere are doing ever so well. Ronnie Moore's done a fantastic job there since coming in at the end of last season
'Hopefully, we've now put a couple of demons behind us and we can move forward in the league.'
Centre-backs Ash Taylor and Ben Gibson should be fit to play despite missing training on Monday, but on-loan striker Jake Jervis has returned to Birmingham.
How annoying is it as a Walsall fan to see local neighbours loaning out players to League 1 teams from Liverpool/Yorkshire and London rather than us?...Tranmere signed Jake Cassidy onloan from Wolves until January, he has scored 10 goals already this season and is the league's leading goalscorer. Considering we have conceeded nearly 40 goals, I cant see us keeping this young gun quiet!
Walsall will still be without injured star Flo Cuvelier, although the Belgian will be in contention for Saturday's game with Hartlepool.
We will also be without skipper Andy Butler who is serving a one match ban. Paul Downing is expected to replace him.
Hemmings and Brandy are set to start following their improved performance on Saturday. Smith will have to decide whether to partner Brandy with Grigg or Bowerman.
@AshHemz has potential to become a great signing, however like the majority of our signings over recent years, you just get the feeling that he will dwindle away like the rest, however when he has played a full match he has looked decent.
Tranmere have gone 13 games without a 0-0 draw and Walsall have gone 29 games without a 0-0, so you know for sure there will be goals!
Walsall are still looking for their first win in 12 league and cup games whilst Tranmere havent won in the last 3 home games and have lost 2 in the last 5.
The man in the middle is Mr Jeremy Simpson from Lancashire. He has refereed 10 games this season, given away 35 yellow cards and 3 penalties!
There are always last minute goals at Tranmere.. Remember Eddie Sonko bagging one a few years ago and then there was Deano's first game in charge when we scored two in injury time.
Stevenage v TRANMERE 24/11/12 - 3pm
WALSALL v Hartlepool 24/11/12 - 3pm
