Tranmere boss Les Parry is only missing striker Bas Savage for the rearranged home clash with Yeovil.

Savage is due to play his first comeback game this week in a friendly against Shrewsbury following a 10-month lay-off with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

However, he remains some way off a return to first-team action and Parry is scouring the market for reinforcements before the transfer window closes.

Parry parted company at the weekend with striker Michael Ricketts after the 31-year-old's contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

The Rovers manager has no major concerns but will make a late check on the fitness of defender Ian Goodison.

The Jamaica international is nursing a slight ankle complaint but Parry expects to have him available.

Yeovil striker Sam Williams is set to keep his place.

Target man Williams returned from suspension to lead the Glovers attack in Saturday's 2-1 home win over local rivals Exeter at Huish Park.

The Glovers were also boosted by defender Terrell Forbes' return from suspension, although he was an unused substitute along with fit-again Aidan Downes, who was back in the Glovers squad after recovering from injury.

Ryan Mason (thigh) scored Saturday's winner after 41 minutes but was withdrawn on the hour and remains a doubt so Keiran Murtagh is ready to deputise.
