Match Preview

Double defensive blow for Parry Tranmere boss Les Parry will be without defensive duo Adam McGurk and David Raven for the home clash with high-flying Sheffield United. Both players were sent off during Tuesday's last-gasp 3-2 defeat at Notts County and now serve suspensions. Michael Kay is set to deputise for Raven and Zoumana Bakayogo should take McGurk's place in the side. Veteran defender Ian Goodison was forced off at Meadow Lane after suffering a bang to the head but is hoping to be passed fit for the visit of Danny Wilson's men. Parry said: "He's got a really big cut right in the middle of his forehead. We could have done without that in the circumstances. "So we're not going to take a chance with that, we'll let it heal a bit more and he'll have to have it padded to play the game." Sheffield United midfielder Kevin McDonald is a major doubt for the game due to an ankle injury. McDonald, a free signing from Burnley earlier this month, hurt his ankle in the midweek win over Walsall and is waiting to learn the full extent of the injury. Manager Danny Wilson has plenty of options should McDonald miss out, with Lee Williamson and Michael Doyle both vying for a place in midfield after stepping off the substitutes' bench on Tuesday night to help turn the game in the Blades' favour. Summer signing from Falkirk Ryan Flynn is hoping to give Wilson another midfield option after recovering from a hamstring strain, while striker Chris Porter has returned to full fitness following a dead-leg. Both players sustained their respective injuries during their debuts at Oldham on the opening day of the season.

Match Report

Rovers hold Blades Nick Montgomery hit a superb first-half goal but Sheffield United dropped their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw with Tranmere. Rovers made the brighter start but were denied through three smart saves by Steve Simonsen from Martin Devaney, Mark McCrystal and Lucas Akins. United gradually warmed to their task and Rovers had keeper Owain Fon Williams to thank for excellent stops from close-range headers by Matt Lowton and Jordan Slew. The deadlock was broken a minute before the break when Blades skipper Montgomery hit the back of the net with a cracker from 30 yards. A header by Rovers substitute Mustafa Tiryaki was well held by Simonsen, but they eventually levelled in the 80th minute. Joss Labadie made an immediate impact as a substitute when heading in David Buchanan's cross.
