Tranmere boss Les Parry remains without a handful of players for the home clash with Rochdale.

Zoumana Bakayogo, Ian Goodison, Marlon Broomes, Max Blanchard and Tim Cathalina all remain sidelined through injury.

Yet Parry said new signing Andy Robinson is looking sharp enough to be included in the squad to face Keith Hill's men.

The midfielder signed for Rovers last Thursday after spending a week training with the club.

Parry said: "Andy had been on trial at a couple of clubs before he came to us.

"The good thing about going on trial is that you have to have a good go and try hard, so he's got himself pretty fit. He's looking nice and slim and he's looking sharp."

Rochdale boss Hill has no injury or suspension concerns.

Hill and his players last week spent a three-day training camp in Marbella but were left disappointed after Saturday's home clash with Charlton was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Nicky Adams and Josh Thompson were passed fit for the 1-0 win at Yeovil in Dale's last outing and goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams will again line up between the posts.

Meanwhile, defender Alan Goodall has agreed to join League Two strugglers Stockport on a deal until the end of the season.

Goodall's contract at Spotland expired and he rejected the offer of a new deal until the summer in favour of a switch to Edgeley Park.
