Tranmere have moved to bring a midfielder in on an emergency loan this afternoon, roversrearguard.com understands.
Rovers have spent what little time they’ve had together since the Peterborough game working on shape as they look to tighten up a midfield devoid of options due to injuries and suspensions.
As many as seven players capable of playing in the middle of the park are unavailable for Saturday’s important trip to Gateshead, and Micky Mellon has been working hard to bring in a new face.
It’s understood that a deal has gone through late today, however do not expect it to be announced until early tomorrow afternoon or possibly even post-2pm. It’s a technique Rovers have used before to keep the opposition guessing.
Here’s hoping what we’re told is accurate, and Rovers have an extra body available for a very tricky looking clash tomorrow.
