Tranmere boss Les Parry is again missing on-loan Manchester City defender Shaleum Logan for the home clash with Huddersfield.

Logan must serve the second-game of a two-match ban so on-loan Leicester youngster Luke O`Neill will continue to deputise at right-back.

O`Neill made his debut in Saturday`s 2-1 home win over Leyton Orient, a result which lifted Rovers out of the relegation zone for the first time in six months.

Parry is hoping to have defender Ian Goodison (ankle) and midfielder Paul McLaren (calf) available to face the Terriers.

Striker Bas Savage is edging closer to full fitness after a long-term Achilles injury as Rovers look to continue their recent fine run of form.

Parry said: "If we could achieve back-to-back wins it would be brilliant."

Huddersfield have an injury concern over Lee Peltier.

The right-back was forced off with a knock to his foot after just 21 minutes of Saturday's 2-0 win over Hartlepool.

Peltier has a chance of being fit but if he fails to make it, Tom Clarke, who replaced him at Victoria Park, will again deputise.

Manager Lee Clark is otherwise expected to make no changes to his winning line-up in what he expects to be a hard-fought encounter.

Clark told the club's official website: "If they can't win games, they are not losing; they have taken seven points from a possible nine.

"Prenton Park is always a tough place to go, so we know we are in for a tough game."
