Tranmere Rovers play their final home game of the regular league season on Saturday afternoon with a local derby against Southport at Prenton Park.
The visitors were confirmed as relegated into the National League North last weekend but showed how dangerous a side they can be with a 2-0 victory over Forest Green Rovers on Bank Holiday Monday.
Rovers come into the game off the back of a 2-1 win away at Guiseley on Easter Monday with James Norwood and Andy Cook on the scoresheet.
Micky Mellon confirmed that Lois Maynard will again miss out with a calf injury. The midfielder missed Monday's win at Guiseley but should return to training early next week.
Long term absentees Ben Tollitt, Jake Kirby, Jay Harris and Darren Stephenson remain absent, while Ritchie Sutton and Steven Jennings will also miss out through injury.
