Grimsby v Tranmere Preview
By: Alex Green
AFTER a bore draw against Rochdale on the opening day of the season, Town welcome League One promotion hopefuls Tranmere to Blundell Park for the first round of the Carling Cup.
Most Town fans who bore witness to the embarrassment which was Town's last game against Rovers won't have much love for the Tranmere fans who celebrated joyously as we were relegated to League Two all those years ago. Since that terrible day both clubs have moved in different directions. As we struggle through life down here Tranmere have come close to returning to the Championship on several occasions, always finishing in the top half of the table and once in 2005 finishing third but losing out in the play-offs. Last season saw Rovers finishing eleventh in a tight league with only the top 6 pulling away towards the end of the season after much place hopping during the winter period. This season with lower league maestro Ronnie Moore at the helm the Wirral-based club will want to finally realise the idea of promotion to the Championship. The first game of the season though didn't go to plan with a 3-1 defeat to Swindon on the opening day leaving them second from bottom in the preliminary table.
Head to Head
Town have a great record against Tranmere, the problem is it all a long time ago! Tranmere used to be easy pickings once upon a time, but Town have only picked up three points out of the last six encounters.

Tranmere 2 Grimsby 1 (Sat 09th May 2004)
Who can ever forget that game? A goal up and Tranmere with nothing to play for down to ten men. The rest is history!
