Match Preview

Showunmi you`re fit, Enoch Tranmere boss Les Parry will make a late assessment on the fitness of striker Enoch Showunmi ahead of the npower League One meeting with MK Dons. Showunmi had yet to resume training on Thursday following an ankle injury, but Parry will give the 29-year-old target man every opportunity to prove his availability despite admitting his hopes were fading. "I tend to think with things like ankles, if he's not right on the Thursday, the chances of him being right on the Saturday are slim," the manager told Tranmere's official website. "If he is available, even if he's not 100%, we've then got a decision to make about whether to start him." Midfielder Martin Devaney is in contention for a starting place against the Dons having trained all week on the back of a groin complaint. Full-back Zoumana Bakayogo is at least two weeks away from action due to a knee problem, while goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams remains sidelined with a broken hand. MK Dons will have David Martin and Darren Potter available for the trip. Goalkeeper Martin and midfielder Potter were forced off through injury during the FA Cup second-round victory against Barnet last weekend. A dead leg saw Martin substituted just before half-time while Potter, who scored his first goal for the club in the 3-1 win at Underhill, went off with a back problem towards the end of the game. Mark Beevers comes back into the reckoning after the defender was forced to miss the cup tie under the terms of his loan from Sheffield Wednesday. Midfielders Luke Chadwick and Stephen Gleeson are strong contenders to return to the starting line up after both players were rested last weekend.

Match Report

In-form Dons down Rovers MK Dons maintained their promotion push in npower League One with a 2-0 victory over Tranmere at Prenton Park. Luckless Rovers found little going right as they fell to a fourth defeat on the spin, but the Milton Keynes club are up to third after a fifth straight win. The early play was scrappy. Robbie Weir, Jose Baxter and Enoch Showunmi had no luck with headers for Tranmere before the Dons went in front with their first chance after 19 minutes. A smart counter attack saw Jabo Ibehre head in at the far post from a cross by Adam Smith. Showunmi only just missed the target for the Merseysiders two minutes later before David Martin in the Dons goal made good saves from John Welsh and Baxter. Luke Chadwick fired wide for the visitors after good approach work in the 39th minute. Then on-loan keeper Paul Rachubka did well to block a close-range strike by Ibehre. At the other end, Martin held on well to an Andy Robinson free-kick. It needed a terrific fingertip save by Rachubka to deny Chadwick a second goal, but the visitors did double their lead on the hour with a low strike by Shaun Williams. Baxter struck the bar with a 65th minute free-kick for Rovers and from the rebound Showunmi somehow blazed over from three yards out.
