Blues host poor travellers Tranmere

Blues host poor travellers Tranmere


Wycombe Wanderers entertain Tranmere Rovers on Saturday in their 29th league game of the season.

The league table currently shows Wycombe in 24th place with 23 points and Tranmere in 17th spot with 32 points, both sides having played 28 games.

Wycombe Home Record...W 4 - D 2 - L 8 - Pts 14...Ppg 1.00 (Rank-23)

Tranmere Away Record....W 3 - D 1 - L 9 - Pts 10...Ppg 0.77 (Rank-19)


The Blues will attempt to put Saturday's trouncing at Brentford behind them by beating a Tranmere side that has now lost seven away games in a row.

Rovers haven't collected any points on the road since they beat Hartlepool on 25th October to move into the final play-off place with 25 points from their opening 15 games.

It was a great start, but it's all gone horribly wrong, and with only one win and 7 points from their last 13 games, Rovers have dropped eleven places and are in grave danger of being sucked into the relegation battle.

Here are some stats…
