Tranmere could still be without Kaiyne Woolery and Liam Feeney for the trip to Salford this weekend, while Morgan Ferrier and Corey Blackett-Taylor will probably also miss out.
New signings Feeney and Woolery have looked good in the outings they’ve had for Rovers so far, but both missed Saturday’s victory over Scunthorpe United at Prenton Park.
Feeney picked up a hamstring injury and could face a few weeks on the side lines while Woolery is recovering from a knock he picked up in the EFL Trophy win against Liverpool. Woolery has a chance of being involved at Salford if he comes through training okay, although he would likely be among the subs at best.
Morgan Ferrier is also up against it to be fit in time. The last time he featured was in the Carabao Cup match against Harrogate in which he was substituted around the hour mark. Mike Jackson will be keen to get the forward back in contention as soon as possible but there is little detail available regarding the nature of his injury.
Finally, we understand Corey Blackett-Taylor is recovering well from his hamstring injury which he also picked up in that Harrogate match. The player has spent time at the FA’s St Georges’ Park facility where he was working with some specialists to help recover from the injury.
Blackett-Taylor was scheduled to train with Tranmere again this week, so fingers crossed he came through that okay. It is likely that Saturday’s game will come too early for him, but you never know.
The rest of the squad looks in good shape as Mike Jackson looks to extend his unbeaten run to four games in all competitions. After securing that first league win of the season against Scunthorpe, Saturday represents a great opportunity to match-up against another team likely to be competing for promotion this season.
Salford currently sit third in League Two having taken eight points from four games. They won 1-0 at Stevenage last time out.
