Tranmere look set to be without four players for their match against Cambridge at Prenton Park.

Midfielder Harvey Gilmour is unlikely to feature for the home side with a bruised foot but will undergo a fitness test.

Rovers will also be without Larnell Cole for around 10 days due to a hamstring injury, while fellow midfielder Ollie Banks will be out of action for a minimum of four weeks with a hernia.

On-loan winger Dylan Mottley-Henry has returned to parent club Barnsley for treatment following a grade two hamstring tear.

Paul Lewis could make an immediate return from suspension and Cambridge interim head coach Mark Bonner could make changes in a bid to stabilise his side.

Bonner, who replaced the sacked Joe Dunne following the loss to Crewe, takes charge of a first League Two game following a Checkatrade Trophy penalty shootout loss to Northampton.

Dimi Mitov, Harry Darling and Lewis came in for David Forde, Jake Carroll and Emmanuel Osadebe against Northampton and could continue.

Striker Barry Corr (ankle) is a long-term injury absentee.
