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."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
