Tranmere vs Newport preview - Rovers won't rush Donnelly back

Posted Tuesday, September 16, 2014 by PA

Tranmere will continue to exercise caution with striker George Donnelly when they welcome Newport.

The summer buy from Rochdale made his Rovers bow in a 12-minute cameo off the bench at Hartlepool on Saturday but is still nursing a slight groin strain.

Midfielder Matt Gill, who doubles as the club's assistant manager, played 90 minutes for just the second time this season at the weekend and although he impressed, the rigours of two games in four days may be too much for the 34-year-old.

Rob Edwards' only injury absentee is defender Liam Ridehalgh, who is a few weeks away from returning due to an ankle problem.

Newport are sweating over the fitness of defenders Ryan Jackson and Ismail Yakubu ahead of the trip north.

Jackon limped out of Saturday's 3-2 win over Mansfield in the second half while Yakubu was unavailable and the pair hope their respective muscle injuries will not prevent them featuring at Prenton Park.

Kevin Feely played 90 minutes against the Stags and should feature again despite his toe problem as the Exiles look to make it five games unbeaten.

Striker Joe Pigott made his debut from the bench having arrived from Charlton and he will be pushing to start.
