Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore will select from an unchanged squad when his League One table-toppers host struggling Bury.

Saturday's 2-0 win over managerless Coventry returned Rovers to the summit and, as a further boost, no injury problems were picked up.

Veteran centre-back Ian Goodison (knee) and full-back Paul Black (thigh) remain on the sidelines, though.

Bury are yet to win this season under the guidance of caretaker manager Peter Shirtliff but, after they gained a creditable draw at Sheffield United on Saturday, Moore is expecting a competitive encounter.

"Bury have gone and drawn 1-1 at Sheffield United and really should have won it," he told Tranmere's official website. "They had a chance right at the death where the lad has hit it over the bar.

"So we know it's going to be a tough game, but let other teams worry about us. If we have the same application and dedication we had the other day, keep the ball that bit better, then Bury will be in for a tough game."

Bury will run the rule over David Healy and Efe Sodje.

Northern Ireland international striker Healy has not featured for the Shakers since netting a penalty on his debut against Coventry and he is presently rated as 50/50 with a thigh strain.

In his absence, Tom Hopper made his own Bury bow up front in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Sheffield United, and the on-loan Leicester youngster is expected to continue as caretaker boss Peter Shirtliff searches for an elusive first win at the helm.

Veteran centre-back Sodje came off with a tight groin at Bramall Lane and faces a late fitness test, with Mark Hughes poised to deputise if he misses out.

Fellow defender Phil Picken is a long-term injury victim after the club confirmed he will miss the rest of the season due to cruciate ligament damage.
