On-loan Middlesbrough defender Gibson had been playing through the pain barrier for a number of matches and was forced to sit out Saturday's 2-2 League One draw with Portsmouth.

Moore told Tranmere Player: "We're waiting - he's going to see a specialist on Wednesday. Nobody seems to know what it is so we've just got to adhere to what Middlesbrough want.

"Until we know what it is then basically the boy can't play. He's a big miss, we've got him and (James) Wallace out at the wrong time."

Skipper Wallace has damaged medial knee ligaments and the former Everton midfielder joins forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and winger Abdulai Bell-Baggie on the sidelines.

"We've had to cope with the other two being missing for a while and these two have come at the wrong time," Moore added. "There is no right time but we've got some tough games coming up."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
