Indeed. It would take a lot to lose it now
I'm guessing that was just a cup hangover. Great story! :)
Still going strong!!!

Tranmere have been drawn at home to National League South side Welling in the FA Trophy 4th round, the tie taking place on the 25th February.

The two sides met twice last season in the National League, a season which saw Welling suffer relegation to the National League South. They did manage to take four points off Tranmere over the course of the two games, the two sides drawing 1-1 at Welling and Welling winning by two goals to one at Prenton Park.

Tranmere have confirmed the loan signings of Alex Honeyball and Zak Vyner from Bolton and Bristol City respectively.

Zak Vyner is a centre back who has joined on loan from Bristol City. So far in his career, Vyner has 4 appearances in the Championship for Bristol City. Earlier this season, Vyner had a 6-month loan spell at League Two Accrington Stanley. During that loan spell, he played a total of 14 games.

Alex Honeyball has joined on loan from Bolton. The 19-year-old is in the under 23 development squad but has yet to make a first team appearance for the League One side.

In an interview on the Tranmere Rovers official website, manager Micky Mellon said:

"I'm delighted to be able to welcome Zak and Alex to Prenton Park and I would like to thank Phil Parkinson and Lee Johnson for allowing them to join us on loan. They are both young, talented and desperate to play first-team games. They will definitely improve on the squad we already have here at Prenton Park and I have no doubts that they'll help to shore up our defence."
Two very good signings from yourself, I'm very familiar with Vyner obviously and he's not a bad player irl so hopefully it'll carry over into FM! :P

They should tighten our defence up nicely. I can't say I'm very familar with them though

A good result there, looking at the stats you've certainly outclassed them and the scoreline reflects it.

Tranmere striker Kevin Lisbie has been ruled out for several months after picking up a double hernia in training.

Lisbie joined Tranmere earlier on in the season and has scored 7 goals in 15 appearances for the club, the majority of which coming from the bench.

Tranmere manager Micky Mellon told the press that the injury probably spelled the end of Lisbie's short Tranmere playing career.

"It's a real shame for Kevin. Unless Kevin is able to recover before the end of the season, that will probably be the end of his time here. Kevin is a superb player and a great man to have around the club but at 38, even he will admit that his better playing days are behind him, especially given the striking talent we have at the club."

"I'm going to approach him about the possibility of taking a coaching course and seeing how he feels. Probably the only way he will stay is as a player/coach as he isn't going to be a regular starter for us and we need to continue to plan towards the future."
