Tranmere boss Les Parry will check on the fitness of several players ahead of the home clash with Leyton Orient.

Parry will assess striker Enoch Showunmi's knee problem but midfielder Joss Labadie misses out through suspension.

Marlon Broomes and Tim Cathalina are edging closer to full fitness after injury and John Welsh returns from suspension, while goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen is set to make his second appearance in a Tranmere shirt after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Parry will also assess a number of other knocks, although he admitted the cold snap had not helped their cause.

He said: "Players are ready to train but haven't trained. So although they are over their injuries they still need to get some training time under their belts."

Leyton Orient will be without their central-defensive pairing Ben Chorley and Terrell Forbes.

The duo are suspended after they were sent off during Tuesday night's extraordinary 8-2 FA Cup replay win over non-league Droylsden.

Chorley sits out a one-match ban after picking up two yellow cards while Forbes will miss three games for a straight red.

Aaron Brown will fill one of the gaps at the back while Brighton loanee Andrew Whing, who was ineligible to play in the cup, could come in at right-back with Elliot Omozusi moving across to the centre.

Midfielder Adam Chambers is still recovering from surgery on his calves and goalkeeper Jamie Jones is out after a hernia op.
