Tranmere v AFCB match preview

The final day of the season for League One teams will soon be here. AFCB have the chance to be Champions if they can get a record 9th win in a row in the league and put a further dampener on Tranmere Rovers last home game of the season.

It has now been made known that Tranmere Rovers are the ones preventing AFCB fans from celebrating with the trophy if the Cherries did become League One Champions on Saturday. It doesn't do the Merseyside club's fans any justice as they might even be appreciative of what the Cherries have achieved this season, but now they too will not be able to watch us lift the trophy either if AFCB win the game.

It was very evident that Carlisle's smurf's were keen to see how AFCB supporters celebrated last weekend and I doubt most Tranmere fans would have had any objections.

While other talk this week has been about the banning of inflatables, it is Tranmere Rovers who ran out of puff during the run-in as AFCB just got stronger and stronger. The Superwhites have been on an abysmal run in March and April, although they have recorded two home wins during this period. It is their form in April that scuppered any hopes they might have had in gaining promotion as they have lost their last five games in tight 1:0 encounters.

Jake Cassidy is their top scorer with 11 goals, but I have been informed that he returned to Wolves in January. Akpa Akpro usually provides great support up front with his physical presence. Midfielder Andy Robinson is also a good goal source having registered 10 this season.

In addition, Tranmere have the delightfully named Max Power who also plays in midfield - I bet he has a good battery! Sorry.

Tranmere have already done Eddie Howe's team talk for him for this game. The promise of no trophy until Sunday if they win should give the boys the incentive to get stuck into the Superwhites. 

I can't see anything other than an away win for this game with the current form of the Cherries. Sure, it won't be easy on the sand bed of a pitch that we will see at Prenton Park, but the Barmy Army voices should inspire the Cherries to a memorable title win.

Then let the partying begin, unless you are a Tranmere official.

Any score predictions are welcome and I'll post them as usual on the site. Can you get the score right for the last game?
