Ronnie Moore Signs New Contract With Tranmere Roversby Jack Kitson / 24 January 2013, 10:43
Tranmere Rovers boss Ronnie Moore has been rewarded with a new contract that will keep him at the Merseyside club until 2015. Moore has won numerous plaudits this season having spent the majority of the campaign top of League One, with Rovers currently leading the way after 29 matches.
Moore is currently in his second spell at Prenton Park having previously managed the club between 2006 and 2009. He returned in March last year and successfully kept them in the league by steering them from just one point clear of the relegation zone to a respectable 12th place finish.
This season has been a different story with Rovers' impressive form propelling them up to top spot, meaning they have a great chance of winning automatic promotion come the end of the campaign. The fact that they are at the summit is somewhat of a surprise considering the lack of resources and injuries to key players. However, this just highlights the fantastic work Moore is doing, which thoroughly merits his new deal. Rovers can currently be backed at 11/2 with Paddy Power to win the league, while they are priced at 13/8 to get promoted.
Tranmere tackle promotion rivals Swindon at Prenton Park on Saturday in what promises to be an engrossing encounter. The hosts may go into the match with five wins from their last six league matches but fourth-placed Swindon have been installed as the narrow 6/4 favourites following their cracking run of form. Meanwhile Rovers can be backed at 7/4 to claim the three points, whereas a draw could be the way to go at 11/5.
