Tranmere boss Les Parry is confident striker Enoch Showunmi will return to full fitness in time for pre-season training.
Showunmi's season is over after a scan confirmed he has broken a fibula in his left foot.
He will miss the two final games of the season and is likely to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.
Parry said: "It is a bit of a blow to lose Enoch. However, the timing could have been a lot worse.
"With the injury keeping him out for six to eight weeks, most of that time will be done during the close season and he will be able to rejoin the rest of the squad for pre-season training.
"Enoch has been one of the successes of our season, having started 45 matches. So no doubt he will be looking forward to getting his feet up."
