Tranmere Rovers Vs Millwall, Sat 1 May 2010

Tranmere boss Les Parry will assess the fitness of midfielder Ash Taylor ahead of the crunch home clash against Millwall.

Taylor sustained an ankle knock in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Colchester and did not train in the early part of this week.

However, Parry is confident that Taylor will be available and said: "There's a small chance he might not be right for Saturday but I think he will be."

Parry will definitely be without midfielder Paul McLaren, who has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a thigh injury.

Rovers currently lie in the relegation zone and are hoping to beat Millwall and then Stockport on the final day to avoid the drop into League Two.

Alan Dunne, Liam Trotter and Shaun Batt are doubtful for Millwall.

Full-back Dunne is wearing a protective boot after sustaining bruising to a metatarsal and is not expected to return by the weekend.

Midfielder Trotter and striker Batt have been sidelined with hamstring problems recently but have stepped up their recoveries this week.

Defender Tony Craig is still missing with an ankle injury but the Lions are hoping he will be fit in time for the play-offs if they are involved.

Striker Gary Alexander made his second substitute appearance since recovering from a long-term heel injury against his old club Leyton Orient last weekend and should feature again after helping set up both Millwall's goals in their 2-1 win.
