Moore ponders changes
Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore will use the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash at Port Vale to give some of his fringe players the chance to impress.
Moore has kept faith with his first-choice players so far this season, with Rovers sitting top of the npower League One table, but will use the cup tie to give other squad players a first-team opportunity.
James Wallace and Andy Robinson have been ruled out after picking up knocks in the 4-0 victory against Colchester, with Danny Harrison and Max Power set to feature.
Moore told the club's official website: "I'll make one or two changes. Wallace and Robbo have got knocks so won't be included and one or two look like they need a break.
"We've got to field six of the team that played on Saturday but that will give the other five lads the opportunity to stake a claim.
"I've got Danny Harrison who's champing at the bit and wants to be playing and Max Power has a promising future. They all want to play games and maybe it will be a game for those two."
