PREDICTIONS LEAGUE: Swindon Town v Tranmere Rovers
September is out the way and it was a tough month. October promises to be a little better. Are the boys up for it, well, they better be. They need to start grinding out results, if they have any aspirations on achieving any chance of promotion this season.
Our head-to head in the League against Tranmere Rovers is Played 62, won 27, drew 16 and lost 21. Of the last 20 meetings between the clubs, Town have won 11, drawn 4, lost 5.
We did the double of Rovers last season with 2 great wins. Starting with the December match at home where we put 5 past them without reply. That was followed up in February - Paolo had just walked – we ran out 3-1 winners and went to the top the league.
But that is eclipsed by the two mammoth matches 20 years ago. The 1992/93 Playoff semis. We were 3-1 up after the 1st leg at the County Ground and went to Prenton Park full of hope and optimism. John Moncur gave us the perfect start, putting us 4-1 up on aggregate after 28 mins. Rovers hit back with 2 goals, one from Mark Proctor on the stroke of half time and one from Pat Nevin, half way through the second half. Craig Maskell restored a two goal margin for Town in the 81st minute. A penalty from Kenny Irons 2 minutes later set up a nail-biter of a finish. The Town held out for a historic win and a date with destiny.
