History of the Tranmere Rovers v Bristol City fixture

Tranmere Rvs. prepare to entertain Bristol City at Prenton Park on Monday evening, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Rovers have a healthy record in the fixture, winning 8 from 13 meetings.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Prenton Park was less than a year ago, in March 2004, the Rovers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Division Two match.
