Tranmere boss Micky Mellon has hailed his side's squad depth, after seeing a much-changed side beat Eastleigh by five goals to one at Prenton Park.
From the side that started the win against Barrow, only four players retained a starting place going into the game with Eastleigh, James Norwood, Andy Cook, Frazer Shaw and Jeff Hughes being the men retained in the starting line up. Tranmere went on to win the game 5-1 with three of the four finding the target.
Mellon was understandably happy with his squad players after the game:
"Absolutely fantastic! What more can I say? To make seven changes to the starting eleven and still come away with a result like that really shows that we have excellent strength in depth here at Tranmere. The depth of the squad was something I marked for improvement when I joined here so to see this result makes me over the moon."
Tranmere Rovers have been hit with a blow after the news that centre back Steve McNulty has picked up an injury.
Giant centre back McNulty pulled up in training holding his back and scans have revealed that the former Luton man has a back strain. Current estimates suggest that McNulty will miss atleast a month of action.
Tranmere manager Micky Mellon spoke of his disappointment but insisted that his side could cope with McNulty's absence.
"Obviously losing Steve is exactly what we didn't want. However, I believe that we have more than enough talent in the squad to cope. We have Jack (Fitzwater), Michael (Ihiekwe), Ritchie (Sutton) and Afolabi (Coker) who can all play centre back so I think we should be fine."
Tranmere have been hit with the news that Jeff Hughes will miss the next 6 weeks with an ankle injury.
Hughes was seen to be limping towards the latter stages of Tranmere's 2-1 win away at Boreham Wood and scans have revealed that the midfielder has suffered a twisted ankle.
The former Cambridge man has been in great form so far this season, scoring 4 goals in as many games, following his permanent move from Cambridge over the summer.
Whilst disappointed, Hughes told Tranmere Player that he would be back a better player.
"I'm really disappointed to pick up an injury now. I really feel like I've been playing well and finally getting the fans on my side. All I can do now is focus on my recovery and make sure that I come back stronger and fitter than ever."
Tranmere Rovers captain Steve Jennings has spoken of his desperation to win when Tranmere travel to Southport on Saturday.
Tranmere captain Steve Jennings told a packed press conference about how he is treating the Southport game like his Merseyside derby.
"This is one of six derby matches for us really. With having Chester, Wrexham and Southport in our league who are so close, we can have 6 derbies a season pretty much. I'm a Liverpool lad so Southport is the one for me though. This is my Liverpool vs Everton. I'm desperate to win this match."
"We should have won at Southport last year really but a poor first half performance cost us. I'm determined to put that right and give the fans something to cheer about on Saturday."
