No fear at Tranmere

There's no fear at Tranmere as big boys Charlton Athletic head for Prenton Park: Tranmere

Sometimes you wonder if the managers, players and newspaper commentators at other third division clubs could not come up with a narrative about Charlton other than: big boys; promotion favourites; we are confident we can deal with them.

Ironically, Tranmere also have keeper problems, although afflicting on loan Manchester City keeper Gunnary Nielsen. He picked up an injury on international duty with the Faroe Islands.

Nielsen was injured (also on international duty) after featuring in Tranmere's opening game. Since then youngster Joe Collister has been used in goal, keeping three clean sheets and appearing in the League One team of the week twice.

However, Tranmere boss Les Parry is worried about putting too much pressure on the 18-year old. He therefore expects to sign a new keeper before the weekend to cope with the menace of Charlton's forward line.
