Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope will have on-loan midfielder Wayne Brown available as his side welcome Tranmere to the Memorial Ground.

Brown had his initial spell from Premier League side Fulham interrupted by an ankle injury. But the versatile 21-year-old trained with the Rovers squad ahead of Saturday's game after agreeing an extension to his deal and looks set to feature this weekend.

Trollope, however, could be without the services of defender Carl Regan who is struggling with tendinitis in his knee.

Midfielder Mark Wright is on antibiotics after he picked up a virus during the week and it remains to be seen whether he will be fit.

Rovers have won their last three games and will be keen to continue their impressive form as they look to close in on the play-off places.

Tranmere boss Les Parry could recall on-loan Manchester City defender Shaleum Logan to his starting line-up for the encounter.

Luke O'Neill, on loan from Leicester, started at right-back in Tuesday's thumping 4-1 home defeat against Leeds.

But Logan replaced O'Neill after 72 minutes, and Parry conceded: "Luke is only a young player and he had one of those nights on Tuesday when things weren't going for him.

"It's hard for young players to deal with that and we had to bring Shay on to try to steady the ship."

Logan's possible return is one of several selection dilemmas facing Parry.

He has midfielder Ash Taylor available again while Chris McCready and Bas Savage are also pushing for selection.
