Tranmere Rvs. prepare to entertain Peterborough United at Prenton Park on Friday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rovers are clearly on top, having won 11 and lost only 5 of the 21 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Prenton Park was just last season, in September 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division Two match.
