TRANMERE Rovers' manager Ronnie Moore has injury worries ahead of tomorrow's League One away game at Crewe Alexandra.
Striker Akpo Sodjie, defender Ian Goodison and midfielder Jason Koumas missed training on Thursday, while Midfielder Joe Thompson was absent through illness. Captain James Wallace is still undergoing rehabilitation following knee surgery.
Rovers travel to the Alexandra Stadium in 18th place in Sky Bet League 1 with one point from the opening two fixtures of the season.
Crewe are two places higher but level on points with Moore’s side after drawing against Rotherham and losing at MK Dons.
Tomorrow's match will be the 117th time Rovers and Crewe have met in league competition.
Rovers currently hold a 49 wins to 38 advantage winning 2-1 in the last match between the two at Prenton Park last December.
Last season's away match ended 0-0 early in the season while Rovers' last win at Gresty Road was a 2-0 victory in October 1999 secured through Wayne Allison's brace.
Crewe Alexandra provided the opposition for Tranmere's first ever game in the Football League, a match which Rovers won 4-1 at Prenton Park.
Players who have represented both clubs include Calvin Zola, Chris McCready, Gareth Taylor, Andy Taylor, Steve Edwards, Clive Evans, Owen Brown, Eddie Bishop, Steve Craven, Mark Palios and Jimmy Harvey.
