Moore starts with the psychology…

Handsome devil Ronnie Moore has been the first to start some kind of psychology in the build up to Forest’s visit to Tranmere Rovers at the weekend.  Tranmere are likely to be favourites in this match given their home advantage, so the former Rotherham United manager has set out by pointing out the numerous injury problems the almost-Scousers have mounting up.

Midfielder Paul McLaren will certainly be missing with an ankle injury, and there is a chance that winger Kevin Ellison could be joining him on the sidelines after hilariously picking up an eye injury after being poked in the eye by a teammate during a goal celebration.  I certainly don’t like to find mirth in the misfortune of others, but that did tickle me.

Top scorer Chris Greenacre and Shane Sherriff also are doubts for our visit, and perpetual arsehole Jason McAteer as well as Danny Harrison are also expected to remain sidelined with their existing injuries.  Tranmere do have a relatively small squad, so it’s possible Moore will be tempted to dabble with some loan signings before the weekend, either way, injuries or no injuries I expect a tough match.  Not least since Rovers may well line up with a certain Mr Taylor who I’m sure would like to shut up a few fans who treated him rather shabbily during his spell with Forest.
