Wolves v Tranmere preview

Wolves will again be without James Henry and George Elokobi when they host the Rovers.
Winger Henry has missed the club’s last two matches with a groin injury and continues to sit on the sidelines for the visit of a Rovers side who claimed an impressive 5-1 scalp at Coventry on Saturday.
Full-back Elokobi was forced off at half-time in last Tuesday’s FA Cup replay defeat to Oldham and duly missed Saturday’s goalless draw at home to Brentford.
Head coach Kenny Jackett made six changes to face the Bees and the likes of Scott Golbourne and Bjorn Sigurdarson will be pushing for recalls.
Centre-half Ash Taylor’s suspension means Rovers will be forced into at least one change when they travel to Wolves.
Boss Ronnie Moore would no doubt have preferred to have stuck with the starting XI which brushed aside Coventry 5-1 in a brilliant performance on Saturday, but Taylor picked up a red card 12 minutes from time for catching Franck Moussa in the face with his boot.
The defender now begins a three-game suspension and Ian Goodison’s groin injury leaves Rovers short of central defensive options, meaning full-backs Liam Ridehalgh or Danny Holmes may have to move inside into more unfamiliar positions.
Club captain James Wallace scored against the Sky Blues, after nearly a year out with a knee injury, and is likely to make a cameo from the bench again, although the same ailment keeps Andy Robinson sidelined.
