Match Preview

Late test for Robbo Tranmere manager Les Parry will make a late decision on Andy Robinson's involvement in the home game with Colchester. Robinson stepped up his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury by playing in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Bradford on Tuesday. Forward Jose Baxter is suspended after collecting a red card in last weekend's defeat at Colchester and although Robinson may be viewed as a natural replacement, Parry wants to err on the side of caution. "Andy played 90 minutes (but) he's still a little but unsure about whether he's ready or not and I don't like chancing players, so whether we put him on the bench or not I'm not sure yet," he told Tranmere Player. "Jose and Robbo play in a very specific area of the pitch and they're a specific type of player. It's something we've got to deal with." Mark McChrystal (foot) and Martin Devaney (hamstring) also took part in the midweek friendly and might be in contention for the weekend, as could striker Enoch Showunmi who is progressing well with his groin problem. Colchester will be missing Steven Gillespie for the trip despite news over the striker`s hamstring injury being positive. Gillespie limped off midway through the first half of last Saturday`s 4-2 triumph at home to Notts County amid fears of a lengthy lay-off, but scans have shown no major tear and he is only likely to be missing for a couple of weeks. The news, however, remains a disappointing blow to the forward, who had managed to secure his first league start of the season against the Magpies. His spot will now likely be competed among fit-again striker Ashley Vincent - who came on to replace Gillespie - Kemal Izzet and Karl Duguid. Otherwise, manager John Ward has no new injury problems. Goalkeeper Mark Cousins (shoulder) and centre-back Pat Baldwin (broken toe) will again be assessed before deciding if they are ready to feature in the matchday 16. The Us travel to Prenton Park having lost just one of their last seven and knowing victory will pull them level with seventh-placed Tranmere, who saw their five-match unbeaten run ended with last weekend`s 4-2 loss at Scunthorpe.

Match Report

Stalemate on the Wirral A disappointing npower League One clash at Prenton Park between Tranmere and Colchester ended goalless. Tranmere were the better side but Colchester dug deep to earn their point. Rovers dominated for much of the first half and should have gone ahead after 27 minutes. Ash Taylor was left with an open goal from a John Welsh cross but his downward header from three yards out hit the ground and wnet over the crossbar. It took 29 minutes for Colchester to get a shot at goal with Owain Fon Williams saving comfortably from a 25-yard effort by Andy Bond. Shortly before the break Ashley Vincent blasted well over for the visitors following a long throw in. Play swung back and forth in the second half but with no end product. Adam McGurk headed over for the Merseysiders and Welsh cleared the bar but generally chances were few. Michail Antonio brought a good save from Owain Williams with 10 minutes remaining. At the other end, a McGurk shot was deflected inches off target and another effort blocked by keeper Ben Williams.
