Holness worry for Rovers

Tranmere captain Marcus Holness looks set to miss out on Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Nottingham Forest through injury.

The defender pulled his hamstring during Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to York and boss Rob Edwards has admitted some changes will be made.

Matt Gill is in contention after recovering from a heavy knock to the knee whilst new signing Clayton McDonald could feature for the first time since joining as a free agent.

Midfielder James Rowe is pushing for a start after coming off the bench to score against York.

Forest boss Stuart Pearce may use the first-round tie to get some minutes into the legs of players he has returning from injury.

Jack Hobbs (ankle) could start in central defence while full-back Eric Lichaj (groin) played the final few minutes of the Reds' Championship opener against Blackpool.

Midfielders Henri Lansbury (knee) and David Vaughan (hamstring) could come into consideration but it remains to be seen if Chris Cohen will feature after playing 87 minutes on Saturday on his long-awaited comeback from a serious knee injury.

Jamaal Lascelles (knee), Kelvin Wilson (calf) and Dexter Blackstock (knee) remain out while Greg Halford will complete a three-match suspension carried over from the end of last season.
