Alan Rogers and Shaun Garnett tasked with saving Tranmere Rovers from the drop

Tranmere Rovers are in desperate need of a moment of inspiration after Saturday's devastating 3-0 defeat at home to Oxford left them rock-bottom of the Football League. The fourth consecutive loss resulted in the departure of manager Micky Adams on Sunday, who left Prenton Park with the club two points adrift of safety, with just two matches remaining.

  • Tranmere have won only two of their last 17 matches, losing their last four.
  • Rovers have been in the Football League since 1921.

Adams only took charge of Rovers back in October following the sacking of Rob Edwards, who was axed after a rotten start to the campaign, which left the club at the foot of League Two a dozen games into the season. Adams enjoyed a decent start to life at the Merseyside outfit, winning five, drawing six and losing just two of his opening 13 matches in charge (in all competitions). However, Tranmere have since carved out just two wins in 17 games, losing each of their last four without registering a single goal.

Rovers have revealed that assistant manager, Alan Rogers, and the academy manager, Shaun Garnett, have been placed in charge of the first-team for the remaining two matches of the season. The duo will be bidding to keep Tranmere, who have not been outside the Football League since joining in 1921, in League Two. On Saturday Rovers make the tricky trip to play-off hopefuls Plymouth, before hosting automatic-promotion chasing Bury on the final day of the season.

Meanwhile, it's Danny Wilson who has been installed as the 4/1 favourite (Bet Victor) in the Next Permanent Tranmere Manager Market. The betting is predictably very open, with a whole host of names in the frame, including James Beattie, Darren Ferguson, Nigel Worthington and Paul Cox.
