Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore concedes Ian Goodison's recent form has left him with a selection dilemma at the heart of his defence.

The former Jamaica international made his first start of the season in the 1-1 draw at Stevenage at the weekend, becoming the first ever player to represent Rovers at the age of 40.

The veteran defender deputised for the suspended Ash Taylor, but Moore admits he is left with a selection headache with loan signing Donervon Daniels also waiting in the wings.

The Prenton Park boss told the club's official website: "[Ian]'s got experience, you can't beat what he's done. To still be doing it at 40 is a credit to the man. He's been fantastic for this football club.

"It will be an interesting challenge this week with Ash available again and young Donervon available.

"It's nice to have a challenge in there. The other two (Taylor and Ben Gibson) have had it all their own way all season, now they're under a little bit of pressure."
