Akpa Akpro, who has seven goals to his name for the League One pacesetters, limped out of Saturday's 1-0 win over Notts County amid fears of a broken foot.

Moore told Tranmere Player: "We're desperate that he's going to be okay but Gregg (Blundell, Tranmere's physio) thinks it might be a fifth metatarsal which would be three months."

If the worst-case scenario is confirmed, Moore intends to move into the loan market and strengthen Rovers' attacking options.

"He's going to have an x-ray and if it is his metatarsal, he'll have it pinned," he added. "And then we'll probably be looking to see if we can bring in a striker to add to the squad."

Moore had better news on playmaker Andy Robinson, who could be fit to face Yeovil at the weekend following a hamstring injury.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
