Tranmere Rovers Vs Leyton Orient, Sat 20 Feb 2010

Tranmere have been boosted ahead of the home clash with Leyton Orient with the acquisition of Leicester defender Luke O'Neill on a one-month loan deal.

The 18-year-old is a second-year professional who has made three first-team appearances for the Foxes and has represented England at Under-17 level.

The teenager's arrival is a welcome boost to Tranmere as Shaleum Logan is suspended for the next two games for collecting 10 bookings.

Boss Les Parry said: "I'm pleased to have been able to bring Luke in on loan.

"With Shaleum Logan suspended for two games we needed cover at right-back and Luke will provide that."

Striker Bas Savage is edging closer to full fitness after a long-term Achilles injury and Craig Curran and Ian Goodison are expected to shake off knocks.

Geraint Williams will be forced into at least one change when he picks his Leyton Orient team.

Winger Nicky Adams was this week recalled by Leicester after a successful six-game loan spell during which the Os were unbeaten.

Jimmy Smith could therefore earn a recall in midfield with Adrian Patulea added to the matchday squad.

There will be a further change on the bench after defender Matthew Briggs' loan spell from Fulham came to an end, so Luke Ashworth will probably return among the substitutes.

Boss Williams has no fresh injury worries to contend with and will otherwise stick with the side which came so close to beating Leeds until they conceded an injury-time equaliser last weekend.
