Tranmere boss Les Parry has no new injury concerns for his side's home clash with Bristol Rovers.

Striker Bas Savage (Achilles) and midfielder Alan Mahon (ankle) remain sidelined but Parry has no other worries.

Last weekend`s 3-0 defeat at Southampton ended Tranmere's five-game unbeaten run but Parry was this week appointed manager until the end of the season.

The club physio has been in charge for the past two months following John Barnes` sacking and will continue to be assisted by Shaun Garnett and Wayne Allison.

Parry paid tribute to his right-hand men, saying: "I don't kid myself for one minute that if they hadn't been with me I'd have been offered the job, because I wouldn't have.

"I direct things in the way I want us to go but they do all the hard work."

Danny Coles returns to the Bristol Rovers squad for the trip.

The defender missed last weekend's 3-0 win over Swindon through suspension having collected five yellow cards this season.

Coles' return means boss Paul Trollope has a full-strength squad to choose from.

Fellow defender Aaron Lescott made a successful return from a six-week absence with a groin injury against Swindon and will hope to keep his place.

Striker Chris Dickson is available for the final time before his loan spell from Charlton comes to an end, although Trollope hopes to be able to bring him back in January.

Trollope gave Andy Williams a start in his preferred striking role last weekend and he could hold onto his place after scoring the opener.
