Tranmere Rovers Vs Yeovil Town, Sat 16 Jan 2010

Next Story

Tranmere boss Les Parry has the luxury of virtually a full-strength squad to choose from when Yeovil visit Prenton Park.

Striker Bas Savage has been out of action since last April with an Achilles problem, but after rejoining training before Christmas he is closing in on a return.

Savage looks set to be the only player not available to Parry as Tranmere seek a victory to further boost their survival prospects.

Relegation-threatened Rovers have not played a League One match since December 28 due to their involvement in the FA Cup and the recent spate of postponements caused by the big freeze.

Despite the problems caused by the weather, Parry said: "I like winter football and think it is the mainstay of English football. I'd hate to see it change."

Yeovil are set to welcome back on-loan Swansea midfielder Shaun MacDonald for the game

MacDonald has rejoined Yeovil on loan until the end of the season following a successful pre-Christmas spell with Terry Skiverton's Glovers.

Yeovil's last two games - at Leyton Orient on January 2 and home to Colchester last Saturday - have both fallen victim to the cold snap.

That has given central midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala (knee) and striker Dean Bowditch (hamstring) time to recover from their injuries.

Central defender Stefan Stam (hamstring) is also set to be fit after hobbling out of Yeovil's last league game, a 3-1 defeat at Swindon on December 28.

Striker Sam Williams and central defender Terrell Forbes are suspended.
