Labadie makes Rovers return
Joss Labadie is expected to return to Tranmere`s midfield when they entertain Walsall at Prenton Park.
Labadie served a one-match suspension during Rovers` 1-0 win over Oldham last weekend.
Boss Les Parry was hoping to have long-term absentees Martin Devaney, Andy Robinson (both hamstring) and Mark McChrystal (foot) available but admits they will continue to miss out.
The trio have been out of action since the start of September, although midfielder Robinson and defender McChrystal are back in training with Devaney set to join them after their clash with the Saddlers.
Even so, Parry admits they will need match practice with the reserves before playing for the first team.
Walsall manager Dean Smith has a full squad to pick from.
Jon Macken, his only recent absentee, returned to training this week after recovering from a hamstring injury.
The former Manchester City striker has netted twice in seven league appearances this season.
The Saddlers will travel without winger David Martin who returned to Derby earlier this week after his one-month loan spell came to an end.
Martin would have been unavailable regardless after he was dismissed for a second bookable offence in last weekend's victory over Preston.
Smith will hope his side can continue their winning ways after the 1-0 triumph over Preston was their first since the end of August.
Rovers unseat Saddlers
Substitute Mustafa Tiryaki earned Tranmere a 2-1 home win over Walsall just three minutes after joining the action.
It was far from a classic but on balance Rovers deserved to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.
It was 18 minutes before the first save by home goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams from a 20-yard effort by Alex Nicholls.
At the other end, Jimmy Walker comfortably held a shot from Jose Baxter before turning aside a 25-yard free-kick by the same player in the 25th minute.
Generally opportunities remained at a premium but Baxter went close again after 36 minutes with Walker this time turning his effort over the bar.
The early stages in the second half were utterly forgettable before the Merseysiders took the lead in the 59th minute. It was a great strike into the top right-hand corner by Robbie Weir from 25 yards out after being set up by Lucas Akins.
Williams saved well from Jamie Paterson after 72 minutes but Walsall levelled 60 seconds later with a close-range header by Andy Butler from Paterson's cross.
Another sub Zoumana Bakayogo set up Tiryaki for his tap in winner but Rovers rode their luck as Richard Taundry rattled the bar for Walsall with a 90th minute free-kick.
