Tranmere V Bradford at Prenton Park : Match Preview

Tranmere V Bradford - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Fon Williams worry for Rovers

Tranmere are likely to be without first-choice goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams for their crunch fixture against Bradford at Prenton Park.


Rovers are in the relegation zone but are just one point below Crewe, over who they have a superior goal difference, and two behind Notts County ahead of a contest which could prove to be caretaker-manager John McMahon's last game at the helm.


Fon Williams has, along with Ryan Lowe, made more appearances than any other player but a groin injury is almost certainly going to stop him playing his 50th game of the season, meaning Jason Mooney may deputise in his place.


Captain James Wallace will not return from a groin problem and midfielder Jason Koumas will once again receive a pain-killing injection in his toe in a bid to be fit.


Bradford striker James Hanson will play no part in the club's last game of the season.


Hanson has been struggling in recent weeks with a back problem that has restricted him to one start in the last eight matches and will not be included in the squad.


Boss Phil Parkinson is hoping defender Rory McArdle can shake off an ankle injury sustained in last week's win against Crawley, while midfielder Nathan Doyle is expected to be in contention despite a niggling groin problem.


The Bantams, chasing back-to-back wins for the first time since February, are assured of a mid-table finish following promotion last season.
