As preparation for this review, I spent a bit of time trawling through the Total Tranmere annals to see what we were talking about when we played Ebbsfleet in September. Doom and gloom doesn't do it justice as we were right in the middle of our 'slump' and only managed a no scoring draw down in Kent.

In true cheerleader fashion, yours truly tried to gee up Rovers fans before the game with an ultra positive slant and reference to the Chicken Licken fairy tale. In hindsight I concede that using a childish story like that was not helpful and clearly had a negative effect on the team.

And anyway, we are more like The Ugly Dukling by Hans Christian Anderson.

Early season 'ugly' form was only disguising a inner beauty and as the winter starts coming to an end, we are gradually growing into a graceful swan and becoming the king of the duck pond.

Ebbsfleet sail into Prenton Park in a very healthy position in the National League and will certainly attempt to muddy the waters tomorrow. But the swan analogy also holds true when you think about our performances too. The classy performances in our recent run are born of a furious work rate that is often unseen and unnoticed, allowing quality bits of attacking play to finish opponents off.

No team is rubbish in this league and nobody turns up not ready to have a bit of scrap so the work rate needs to continue in every renaming fixture. But our quality players are on the point of all being available soon which adds a whole new dimension to the team.

So while loads of rival fans laughed at our 'ugliness' at the start of the season, grudging acceptance of our 'beauty' is gradually starting to be heard as awareness grows of who is the true apex predator of the National League.

The moral of this tale is that nothing else matters apart from our performances and it's time we started making everyone dance to our tune.

I was at the away game and the previous loss at Maidenhead, it seems a long time ago since those dark days. Their recent form isn't that good, one win this year, but they did get a draw at Aldershot. Thinking its going to be 2-0

I like the prose Kenny and echo your sentiments. I will be setting off tomorrow at 8.00am only slightly after the Ebbsfleet fans and they no doubt will believe they can get a result.
They have proved difficult to beat so far and will raise their game tomorrow. We know its going to be difficult but I feel we shall prevail. I fancy Tollit to make an appearance last 20 mins. Wallace two weeks away IMO.

This on paper should be a win and at this stage of the season has to be a win IMO if we are going to go up outright.
That said Ebbsfleet will as pointed out raise their game and despite their recent poor form will be looking to take a "scalp".
I am going for a 2-1 win. Norwood to score one and miss a one on one and the other from midfield. Would be great to see Tollitt on the bench and coming on if the score allows for a 15 minute cameo....

Another good result today. Prenton Park is becoming a fortress again. Away teams must dread coming here.

Pleased for Nors and Cook who seam to have a good understanding of each other.

2 points off top now. I don’t care where we are in the league, who is above us or how many games in hand they have. As long as we focus on our own game, I fully believe we’ll get there.

As an added bonus, we now have an almost fully fit squad!

Thought we did ok today against very limited opposition. Three well taken goals on a sticky pitch.Norwood again a constant threat and missed a couple of good chances to make it a hat trick. The first 10 minutes was poor with no real shape though we obviously did grow into the game and but for their keeper making a couple of great saves would have been a real pasting. Great to see Tollitt back. A little bit off the pace naturally but still some great touches and bits of trickery. If he can stay fit we should be well placed for the run in!

Good result against weak opposition. Cook and Norwood going well. Great to see Tollitt back. Hope to see Wallace back too. Credit to Ridehalgh : in the last few games, he's played left back, centre half and now right back - he may not be our best player, but he's a valuable member of the squad. Other teams have games in hand, but we're all playing each other so, if we can keep on winning....

The ref missed so much today, Norburn was battered within eyeshot and ignored every time.

I don't know how it's never happened in the past two years but cook and Norwoods chemistry now is wondrous to see.

I've got good feelings for how this season will pan out.

From the games I saw last season and this Cook and Norwood were each 'playing for themselves' not 100% what the full history was but it appeared that Norwood was p!$$ed that he might not be No1 striker and Cook was overly keen to prove himself. You could see in games that Cook wouldn't pass to Norwood and visa-versa, I think much of it also goes back to the 'full and frank' discussion they had about who was going to take a penalty. It is very noticeable that the dynamic has changed and there is as you say a real chemistry there, I would add Jennings to those two, the three of them are a formidable strike combination.

Agree hootsMon Taylor looks exceptionally shaky on the high ball and simply doesn't command his area or look at all confident.
Hopefully Davies will be back very shortly.

You'd struggle to see a better finish at this level than the three strikes today. Despite our dominance I felt we weren't at our best (some people are never happy!), yet we could/should have won by at least a couple more. Ebbsfleet possibly the least effective (trying to be diplomatic) side that have visited PP this season. A stereotypical National league side who came to nullify us and try to rough us up in the first half which lead to one or two reactions, noticeably from Norburn and Norwood; thought Norwood was a little reckless with his elbow and lucky he didn't catch their player and receive a straight red. Mickey did motion to him to think and calm down. If the referee had done his job the players wouldn't need to take things into their own hands; thought ref was generally poor today, particularly in the first half. Cook lead the line well and his and Norwoods work rate in closing their defenders down was first class; Ginneley chipped in well too. Ridehalgh settled well at right back as the game went on. Clarke had a quiet game today and mis-judged a few headers; still a bit to learn on his defensive duties. Apart from one stray pass at the beginning of the game, McNulty was a colossus. Despite it not being the "perfect" performance, to dominate and win convincingly against a team who are in a healthy league position, speaks volumes of our self-belief, application and quality. Long may our terrific home record continue and let's sneak some away wins to go up as champions of this damn league! Just a final word and kudos to a decent away following considering the distance and stature of Ebbsfleet.

Happy with that overall performance, one or 2 complacency moments when we were 2 up but we dealt with it just in time to prevent anything coming from it.

3 points for me from the game were that Kedwell must think himself some sort of a brute, not one challenge in the air or even along the ground was he contending for the ball. Always eyes on the player.

Secondly, i like to give praise were it's due. Rides may not have shone out as the key performer but he moved over to that right side and although didn't have too much to worry about just got stuck in and showed that he has a right foot.

Lastly, Nors 1 on 1 anyone? Chuffed for the guy and hopefully it'll increase his already high confidence levels.

Never doubted the lads and MM through the 'darker days' of this season and knew we'd be up or abouts come this time of the year. We keep them all fit and in-form then this should be ours for the taking!

Not at our very best today but, a very good team performance all the same.

I put some it down to a pathetic referee who, if he had shown some authority, could have stopped the Ebbsfleet shall we politely say "over zealous" tackling in it's tracks.

The initial tackle on Jay Harris was worthy of a yellow and that player (who was at it all game) didn't receive a yellow until well into the second half.

The most concerning thing for me was the amount of late or off the ball incidents he missed or chose to ignore which, could have resulted in serious injury or retaliation by a Rovers player.

As I have said before home form should be fine, we need the away wins!!!!

I am sorry I think that this is a totally unfair comment.I thought the ref had a good game.He let the game flow and he was consistent in his responses.There has been some poor referees this year but yesterday's was,in my opinion a more than comment official. I may not have agreed with every decision but but that would be the case in any game and is not the yardstick for judging officiald

As usual, it is all about opinions, suffices to say in this instance I totally agree with Hardly Irons.

As posted before, IMO, he was not in control of the game at any point yesterday and certainly was not by any stretch of the imagination a competent official.

I should've found it hilarious with the Fourth Official but as you say what a clown, it didn't work when he put it up so he gets it working and then holds it the wrong way.

Should be taught which way is forward before being able to use any utensils.

Thought Cookie was immense yesterday and at half time I actually thought there’s nothing wrong with Taylor in goal then he reverts back to script with a dodgy second half. Great to see Ben get a run out and Eddie the full match, he offers so much more especially in the second half bombing down the wing with Ebbsfleet players dead on their feet. Watched the referee closely yesterday and it was clear he was moving onto the second phase too quickly and missing the foul tackles and not just the odd one or two, had a laugh when I read on Twitter that someone said he had a good game, laughed more though at the linesman doing his best dancing on ice impression. Good away following and a drummer in tow, must be catching. Corner routines have improved lots since first few months. Massive game next weekend but every game is massive now.

The ref actually did us a favour mid way through the first half, Nors went for a headed challenge with their number 14 and clearly lead with his elbow and it was quite blatant, I honestly thought he would see a straight red. In a way it backs up the opinion that the ref was useless.

Great to see Ben get a run out and Eddie the full match, he offers so much more especially in the second half bombing down the wing with Ebbsfleet players dead on their feet. Watched the referee closely yesterday and it was clear he was moving onto the second phase too quickly and missing the foul tackles and not just the odd one or two, had a laugh when I read on Twitter that someone said he had a good game, laughed more though at the linesman doing his best dancing on ice impression. Good away following and a drummer in tow, must be catching. Corner routines have improved lots since first few months. Massive game next weekend but every gam
e is massive now.

Thought Taylor did well yesterday, made a world class save in the first half. Fumbled one in the 2nd. But hey ho a very good clean sheet.

I thought he made two great saves first half . One he got down quick to his right hand post ( for which McNulty applauded him ) and the dive to push it right . Also I think his distribution is spot on . Knows when to play it from the back or play it long and when he does mostly finds a white shirt . No real complaints from me .

I thought the Ebbsfleet keeper was top class. Not only did he do everything really well, but a character and a hair cut to boot. If he played for us he would be a cult figure.

Ref the Norwood one on one, he only took one touch, didn’t leave himself time to think, great finish.

Any actual facts of Buxton injury out today?

Only thing i've heard or seen is he felt something in his calf.

Normally just a precautionary thing but Buxton seems to bounce off rough challenges so hopefully it's nothing serious at all as he's been a class act all season.

Absolutely agree-a real character and showman. And he made some great saves too.

Would shift a fair few shirts in the Club Shop too I reckon. So he would please both the team and the bean counters.

This is based solely on a single 10 minute highlights clip, so admittedly not the most exhaustive scouting report.
