Cassidy scored his 11th goal of the season, and first in five games, during Rovers' last League One outing - a 1-1 draw at Stevenage at the end of last month.

The 19-year-old, who also spent time at Prenton Park last term, has been forced spearhead to Tranmere's attack in recent weeks following a host of injuries to key players.

"He's a good player, there's no doubt about that, he's up there on merit," Moore said. "You could see last season he was a good player.

"But when you consider at one stage this season we actually had Andy Robinson on seven goals, we had Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro on seven goals and we had Cass on seven goals.

"Unfortunately for us the other two have picked up injuries and they're big misses for a club this size, so Cass is important to us to get those goals at this level."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
