Presser Round-Up

The main talking points from Garner’s Bristol Rovers press conference ahead of Tranmere clash



Bristol Rovers travel to Tranmere Rovers tonight as they seek for that first league win under manager Ben Garner.

Garner was appointed in December but is yet to see his side pick up their first three points under his stewardship, having gone 13 games without a win across all competitions.

Despite their poor run of results, there have been signs of improvement in recent weeks with Rovers looking like they have started to get to grips with the philosophy that Garner is trying to instill upon his side.

In the build he was insistent that he wanted to end that run, saying he was desperate to get that first taste of victory with the Pirates.

Is former Rovers forward Will Hoskins still playing?

A trip to Tranmere for Rovers is bound to be tough, as Micky Mellon’s physical side can present a challenging test to anyone in League One despite their lowly position.

The Merseyside club have recently come in for criticism for their pitch with the point being raised ahead of their FA Cup tie at home to Manchester United a couple of weeks ago.

Tranmere’s pitch is unlikely to have improved drastically over the last couple of weeks with Storm Ciara now battering the country and Garner has been fairly vocal over the conditions that his side will face.

The Pirates gaffer was left feeling frustrated following their 3-1 defeat away to Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend after the referee had denied what he felt was two penalties for his side.

The performance from the men in black on that day has left him even more unhappy with the refereeing standards of late as he believes they have played a role in the side’s recent defeats.

He was vocal in his pre-match presser on the need for the lower leagues to acquire better officials in the not too distant future, feeling that his side had lost out on multiple points in the past as a result of poor decision making
