jured players not expected to be fit for Rovers against Brentford
2:22pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
TRANMERE Rovers' assistant manager John McMahon doesn't expect any of the four injured players who missed Saturday's game against Stevenage to be fit for the match against Brentford this weekend.
Andy Robinson, Jason Koumas, Jake Kirby and James Wallace all watched from the stand as Rovers drew 0-0 against Stevenage and are likely to do the same again on Saturday.
However, the squad should be boosted by the return of goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams and Abdulai Baggie from international duty.
McMahon also hopes defender Ian Goodison, who came off with a hamstring injury during Saturday's game Stevenage, will be available this weekend.
Robinson and Koumas are being treated for groin injuries, Jake Kirby has an ankle and James Wallace has knee trouble.
McMahon said: "Robinson, Koumas, Wallace and Kirby are still getting treatment.
"It affects the numbers we've got for training and also for the game on Saturday.
"Goody came off with a bit of a hamstring injury. I don't think it's anything too serious so he should be available for the weekend game.
"Abs is back in today from international duty. He played 70 minutes for Sierra Leone so it will have done his confidence the world of good and his fitness levels will have improved as well.
"Fonners reports back to the Club on Thursday."
