Walsall will be without Troy Deeney for their home clash against relegation-threatened Tranmere although manager Chris Hutchings has an otherwise fully-fit squad.

The 11-goal striker saw red for deliberate handball against Stockport last weekend and subsequently missed Monday`s 2-1 home victory over Wycombe having been issued with a two-match suspension, which he will complete against Rovers.

However, midfielder Matt Richards returns after an enforced absence due to an ankle injury, winger Peter Till has overcome a hamstring strain and centre-back Clayton McDonald returns from a three-game ban.

Midfielder Dwayne Mattis made his comeback against Stockport after an Achilles problem while captain Mark Hughes returned from suspension to play his first 90 minutes for three months against Wycombe.

The Saddlers go into the game looking to secure their first back-to-back wins since February and hoping to finish the season on a high after what has been a disappointing run of results of late.

Tranmere manager Les Parry will be without suspended trio Andy Robinson, Terry Gornell and Paul McLaren.

Gornell begins his three-match ban after receiving a straight red card in Monday's defeat to Swindon, where as Robinson and McLaren are serving the last game of their respective suspensions.

Striker Craig Curran is also out of the game with a groin injury but Aaron Cresswell is available again after serving a ban.

Shane Logan remains a long-term absentee with a hernia problem which could rule him out for the rest of the season.

Rovers will be desperate for three points to aid their battle against relegation. They currently sit in the relegation zone, level on points with Leyton Orient, but have a game in hand.
