Teenage goalkeeper Andy Coughlin set for Tranmere debut

Tranmere

Andy Coughlin is convinced he will be ready for his Tranmere Rovers debut when he replaces the suspended Owain Fon Williams at Colchester on Saturday.

The 19-year-old goalkeeper played 18 minutes of the 1-1 draw against Hartlepool after Fon Williams was shown a red card for a professional foul.

Coughlin told BBC Radio Merseyside he will not feel many nerves when he make his first League One start.

"I'm looking forward to it because I've waited a long time for it," he said.

"I think I've been ready for a long time. I used to get nervous for games but I've been around the first team for a while now so I can't wait for it.

"I play with the defenders all the time in training and reserve matches so I know them all really well."
