SWINDON TOWN: Ferry anticipates Tranmere backlash

Swindon Advertiser: Simon Ferry in action Simon Ferry in action

SIMON Ferry expects to come up against an “angry” Tranmere side when Swindon Town visit Prenton Park tomorrow.

The Robins dished out a 5-0 thrashing to the table-topping Wirral outfit in December, and Ferry thinks Rovers will still be hurting from their pre-Christmas humiliation.

Town will be looking to protect a two-month unbeaten record in the north west this weekend, at the ground Ferry scored his first Football League goal in a 4-1 Swindon win in October 2009, and the Scot stressed that he and his teammates will be well prepared to deal with a Tranmere backlash.

“We’d take any win up there. They’re top and we’re fourth so it’s a massive game. After beating them 5-0 earlier this season they’ll be out to get revenge. I think we’re the only team who’s really given them a doing this season,” he said.

“It’s a big game for us, if we can reduce the gap as well so it should make for a good game.

“It’s never nice to get beat 5-0 and they’ll obviously be angry about that because it was their first big defeat when they were going so well. I’m sure anyone is the same - when you get beat badly by somebody you remember it and you’ll want to go back and make up for it.

“They’ll be up for it and we want to reduce the gap so we’ll be up for it as well.”

Tranmere's position at the top of the league shows how poor this division is - my money's on Town ripping a few more holes in the Trannies.

I have to agree with you stickshaker, there is no outstanding teams in this division to be concerned with this season. In fact if it wasn't for our shocking form at home until the beginning of december we would be cake walking it. It all seemed to change for us after Holland and Martin found their feet and got themselves fit under Paolo, let's hope in Hollands absence Miller can keep going, a big ask I know, but he really has to step up to the plate and show consistency in controlling the midfield.

Compared with the past couple of seasons where we have had to contend with Southampton, Leeds, Norwich, Brighton to name but a few, this seasons there is no team we should be afraid of, thats not to say we won't lose one or two along the way, but wouldn't it be great to put a run together that can maintain our challenge for that automatic place.

Even though we beat them convincingly there were times when their midfield and strikers looked threatening. This is going to be a very tough match for us on a pitch that is not the best. We are looking a lot more convincing recently and great team spirit so just hope we can pull it off. If we do then we are in a position to overtake them. COYMR!!!
