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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
