Moore injury worries ahead of Tranmere Rovers' League One clash with Bradford
9:57am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Sport
RONNIE Moore has fresh injury worries ahead of Tranmere Rovers' League One clash with Bradford on Sunday.
The manager was without a handful of his squad at Swindon and doesn't expect any of his injured players to be available for selection at Valley Parade.
He was dealt another injury blow after young goalkeeper Sam Ramsbottom picked up an injury in training on Tuesday morning.
The second year youth scholar, who has been on the substitutes' bench for the last two games in the absence of the injured Jason Mooney, went over on his ankle at Raby Vale.
The extent of Sam’s injury isn’t yet clear but it is suspected he has a small crack in his tibia and ligament damage.
Owain Fon Williams is currently away on international duty with Wales while Mooney is out for around 4-6 weeks with a knee injury.
The club's first year youth scholar, Luke Pilling, recently returned back from international duty with Wales Under-17s with a groin injury and wasn’t involved for the Under-18s on Saturday.
Birkenhead-born midfielder Andy Robinson has been out of action with a knee injury for more than a month and now has a hernia. It means he could be off the pitch for another month.
Moore told Tranmere Player: "Robbo looks like he's got a hernia on top of his knee injury. He's going to be a month, somewhere in that area weeks with a groin strain.
"[Evan] Horwood is going to be another two to three weeks as well.
"James Wallace is coming along slowly but surely. He's walking about with a smile on his face which is good because he's been snarling because he's not been happy with the injury.
"You're going to miss somebody with the ability he's got and the sooner he's fit the better for this football club."
However, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro should return after missing the match at the County Ground due to an abscess.
Moore added: "Jean-Louis should be fine. It was massive to be fair, it looked like someone had punched him. But he's got a week to get over it."
