PETER TAYLOR will instruct his Gillingham team to exploit any sign of dipping confidence or anxiety in the Tranmere ranks at Prenton Park tomorrow.
Taylor, a vastly experienced manager, says he understands exactly how counterpart Ronnie Moore is feeling after Rovers suffered heavy defeats to Peter- borough and Carlisle. But that does not mean any sympathy will be shown as Moore attempts to put some steel into a defence he accused of backing off too often at Brunton Park.
Gillingham took a couple of substantial beat- ings of their own recently at Rotherham (4-1) and Notts County (3-1), then recovered to post a creditable 2-2 draw at home to promotion chasing Peterborough.
Taylor said: “Tranmere have just conceded nine in two games and I’m sure Ronnie’s going to be looking for a reaction. He’s had a little bit of a pop at his team this week.
“He’s a very frustrated man at the minute and I understand that. I felt exactly the same after Rotherham and Notts County. You hope Tranmere supporters are getting a bit frustrated with their team. We would like to be the team that starts best and if we do that we could put Tran- mere under pressure.”l ROVERS have reduced admission prices to £5 in all home stands for the fixture with Gillingham.
