Ronnie Moore has no new injury worries as his in-form Tranmere side look for more success.

Rovers are unbeaten in five league meetings this season and are in pursuit of a third consecutive win at Prenton Park against the Sky Blues.

Ian Goodison (knee) and Paul Black (thigh) remain out but fellow defender Ben Gibson is available after securing an extension to his loan deal from Middlesbrough.

One man who seems to have put his fitness worries behind him is attacking midfielder Andy Robinson.

The 32-year-old suffered a stop-start campaign last season but has returned in scintillating form, earning himself the League One Player of the Month award for August.

Moore told Tranmere's official website: "He's as good as anybody at this level. Touch wood he stays away from injury because he's going to be a big player for us this season."

John Fleck is rated as 50/50 for Coventry.

The midfielder, a summer signing from Rangers, has managed just half an hour for the Sky Blues this season due to a troublesome hamstring injury.

However, he could be involved in some capacity at Prenton Park as managerless City continue to look for the their first league win of the campaign.

David Bell (hip) is the only definite absentee after fellow midfielder Conor Thomas returned from his ankle complaint as a second-half substitute in last Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Stevenage.

Coventry's search for a new manager is gathering pace and the encounter could well be caretaker boss Richard Shaw's last game in charge, although he is one of nine candidates to have been interviewed for the position.

Shaw must decide whether to recall the likes of Cody McDonald or Gary McSheffrey.
