The rookie centre-back is at Prenton Park on a month's loan but Rovers have refused him permission to play in the Carling Cup.

He was in the side that lost 3-0 at Leeds on Saturday but was withdrawn in the 40th minute after a problem with blisters.

Gunning was replaced by Ash Taylor, who could now be handed a starting role against Gary Megson's Premier League outfit.

Striker Bas Savage remains sidelined and is not expected to play until the New Year because of a ruptured Achilles tendon injury which he sustained towards the end of last season.
