Tranmere Rovers may have a match-free weekend, but Micky Mellon’s first-team squad have not been taking things lightly and preparations for the busy Christmas schedule have been gathering pace.

Rovers were scheduled to play away against Woking in the Vanarama National League this weekend, a fixture which has been postponed due to The Cards’ continued participation in the FA Cup as they play host to Tranmere’s first round conquerors Peterborough United on Sunday afternoon.

The Tranmere manager has mixed feelings about the enforced break.

He said: “The break has been useful in terms of the injuries that we have and the amount of work the players have done in recent weeks in terms of games played and the travelling we’ve done.

“But on the other hand, we have come off the back of a really good 4-0 victory over Maidstone and some good recent form.

“The players have been playing well and are probably champing at the bit to get another game under their belt and keep the momentum going from that, so there are positives and negatives to the break.”
