David Amoo is in line to make his Tranmere debut.

Amoo penned a six-month deal at Prenton Park on Wednesday following his release from Preston.

The former Liverpool youngster's chances of featuring in attack are enhanced by the continued absence of Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (broken metatarsal) and Abdulai Bell-Baggie (lateral knee ligament).

Skipper James Wallace also remains on the sidelines as he continues his rehabilitation from medial knee ligament damage.

Forward Michael O'Halloran and defender Donervorn Daniels are both expected to retain their places in Moore's starting XI after securing extensions to their respective loans from Bolton and West Brom.

Rovers are chasing a fourth consecutive league triumph but must bounce back from last weekend's 5-0 FA Cup exit at the hands of Derby.

Dannie Bulman is set to return to Crawley's starting line-up for the trip to the league leaders.

Bulman is in line to replace Hope Akpan in the centre of midfield after the former Everton youngster this week completed a move back to the Premier League with Reading.

Centre-halves Kyle McFadzean - who has also been linked with a January move away - and Claude Davis missed last weekend's FA Cup defeat by the Royals and remain doubtful.

McFadzean, out since November due to a virus, is more likely to return against Carlisle next weekend while Davis is still struggling with a knee problem.

Young striker Jonte Smith can return to the squad after he was cup-tied at the weekend.

Eden Hazard: 'Chelsea need Diego Costa'

Eden Hazard admits Chelsea 'need' Diego Costa as he faces a three-match ban for a stamp on Emre Can on Tuesday night.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
