I think a win would be good to exorcise the last two games. 4 points from 2 was a good return, but the performances didn't hit any real highs, that the quality at Brabins disposal is almost certainly capable of.

However a point should be a minimum against such a team, but they are a test of promotion credentials. After 7 games they are not 5th by getting one or two results that could mislead, they are genuine promotion contenders it must be noted at this stage, as the runners and riders are usually sorted out after 5-6 games and for Tranmere to be top after 46 games, they have to beat a few such teams, because beating only teams outside of the top 5 will not be enough unless it was pretty much 30+ wins and a few draws, which is a bit unlikely and when one or two struggling teams nick a point or 3, you need a big hitter or 3 in the bag to balance that out.

A point wouldn't be a heinous crime, but a win would obviously be great. 1-0 will do and a clean sheet against them would certainly highlight the credentials of Davies and the defense, as players capable of anchoring a promotion push.
