Manager Ronnie Moore has said that the Crawley Town game tomorrow evening is an opportunity to build up a gap on some of the teams below us in the league.

Crawley haven’t played a single game in the past six weeks after successive postponements home and away for them owing to the weather, so Moore admits that he hasn’t quite been able to take them in and learn what to expect from them, but his overriding interest is in how we perform and the levels we rise to as he wants to get us back to winning ways.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, Moore knows a win could lift us from our lowly 18th place as high as 15th depending on how other results go, and that would obviously be a boost for everyone.

‘They’re all big now (games). It’s massive for us. They’ve got six games in hand and there’s a point difference. If we can win it will put a little gap between ourselves and Bristol City as well as it’s our game in hand. A win would open up that bit of daylight that we need.’

One difficulty obviously is their lack of games as they could come back firing on all cylinders to make up for lost time and refreshed to boot, or they could be completely rusty. For the gaffer it means we really need to put aside the errors and the slow starts that have plagued us this season, and be completely on the ball to cope with whatever they have, and if they are rusty to make them pay for it so we can get the advantage we definitely need in league results now.

Travelling to the Stadium as well, there is no guarantees yet that this game won’t fall foul of the weather, but Crawley have informed Tranmere that as things stand they are very confident the game tomorrow evening will go ahead as planned.
