They did, but were gifted their goal against Preston, and also lost to two non league sides without scoring a goal.

Did the same teams play in both games?

No, 5 changes to starting line up. Plus 12 changes on the hour. Tranmere scored in last minute after intercepting a back pass, their only goal of pre-season, with games against Warrington Town and TNS.

Mike Jackson, the Tranmere manager was at Deepdale on Saturday. He must have been licking his lips. Otis could bag a brace against us before not scoring again for 18 months. :lol:

You can’t read much into friendly matches, past history proves it.
