Speaking to PNE Player after the victory over Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night, manager Graham Westley said of the fans and the support expected at Tranmere on Saturday: “On Saturday I know they [the fans] are going to be fabulous.
“We saw at Bury and at Oldham what they give the team. We gave them something at Bury and we didn’t at Oldham, so we owe them and the weekend is a good opportunity to give them something back and if we can post another win on the road it would be fabulous.”
