Tranmere have been dealt a blow after veteran defender Ian Goodison was ruled out for several weeks with a knee problem.
The Jamaica international sustained the injury during last weekend's 3-3 draw at home to Walsall.
Rovers boss Les Parry has already lost defender Marlon Broomes to a calf injury this week.
Parry said: "Once again the curse of the centre-half has hit us.
"Ian Goodison is going to be out for a few weeks as he has torn his medial ligaments on his knee.
"Marlon Broomes came back in on Monday and has torn a calf so he is out. So we've lost those two, and together with losing Max [Blanchard] and Tim [Cathalina] isn't going to do us any favours so we've just got to get on with it."
