Tranmere Rovers have been desperately trying to find a way back into the Football League following their relegation into the National League at the end of 2014/15, however their current campaign has been less than impressive and with Micky Mellon’s men sitting in the bottom half of the league table as things stand, it is looking increasingly likely that they won’t be emulating their relative success of last season when they grabbed for themselves a place in the play-off final.

It was all to no avail on that occasion as the Wirral side lost 3-1 to unfancied Forest Green Rovers and the pressure will be on Mellon to turn things around in 2017/18 and mount a decent challenge for promotion. Indeed there remains much of the season left to play and a mere five points separates Rovers from the top-four in the league table, therefore hope hasn’t been lost just yet.

Their National League concerns will take a back-seat on Wednesday evening as they return to FA Cup action with a head-to-head with League One side Peterborough United. The two sides fought out a 1-1 draw at London Road earlier this month to force a replay at Prenton Park and we expect a similar evenly-fought encounter in this midweek affair.

Nevertheless Grant McCann’s men have been pretty impressive of late with the Posh bouncing back from a dismal run of six games without a win to embark upon an unbeaten run of four matches, a ‘streak’ which has helped them climb steadily up the league table where they currently sit eighth. Can the Posh extend this run when they face National League side Tranmere Rovers on Wednesday evening?

Two divisions may separate these sides but this mattered little in the original FA Cup tie with both sides enjoying prolonged periods of possession, however we believe that Peterborough United will edge this tie and ultimately run out winners in what will be another closely-fought affair on Wednesday evening.
