Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has no new injury concerns ahead of the visit of Tranmere.

Trollope is likely to keep an unchanged team to the one that defeated Notts County 2-1 at the weekend.

Gary Sawyer returned against County after serving his suspension and will keep his place at left-back while versatile defender Byron Anthony will keep his spot in the Pirates backline.

Wayne Brown is pushing for a start in the midfield after coming on as a substitute against County at the weekend while John Akinde is likely to start despite suffering with a cold.

Will Hoskins suffered a knock in Saturday's second half but will be fit for the visit of struggling Tranmere and is likely to play in his more favoured position up front rather than on the wing.

Tranmere manager Les Parry is unlikely to have a trio of key players available.

Ian Thomas-Moore, Ian Goodison and Adam McGurk are all major doubts after suffering knocks in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Colchester.

Thomas-Moore and McGurk only returned to the squad at the weekend following injuries but now look to be sidelined again with thigh and knee problems respectively.

Goodison did play a full part in the United game despite struggling with a neck injury, however he looks set to miss the game against the Pirates after picking up an ankle knock.

The size of Tranmere's casualty list is now a major concern for Parry with Gunnar Neilsen, Marlon Broomes, Ash Taylor, Liam Darville and Alan Mahon all still on the treatment table.
