Tranmere skipper John Welsh is convinced new signing Mark McChrystal will prove a major hit at Prenton Park.

The Irish centre-back, 26, made an impressive first start for Rovers at MK Dons last weekend following his arrival from Derry City, on a contract that runs until the end of the season.

And midfielder Welsh told the Daily Post: "Mark was commanding.

"It was definitely a positive performance from him. He is strong.

"He looks like he can go through a brick wall for you. But he was also shouting.

"He was telling people where to go. I think Mark can only be good for this club."
