Update from the treatment room

Tranmere Boss Ronnie Moore says he hopes to have Mamady Sidibe available for selection for this Saturday's home game against Oldham Athletic. 

The striker came off with a tight hamstring at Yeovil but Moore hasn't ruled him out of his plans for the weekend - though he will be without Andy Robinson. 

The Manager told Tranmere Player: "We're hoping he's ok, he just felt tight. 

"It was a surprise he progressed so quickly, we thought he was going to be out for two weeks but in the three days he progressed so quickly and there was such an improvement he wanted to play.

"We're hopeful it's not put him back at all and that he may be available on Saturday. 

"We've got a rest this week for them because one or two looked tired on Saturday.

"You look at Akpa Akpro, he's been out with the injury, then he came back in and got suspended and he looked like he was tugging a little bit. We need him back at his sharpest because he is a big threat for us when he's fully fit.

"Robbo is going to be three weeks. He's got a proper hamstring injury and you can't carry on when you've done your hamstring properly. 

"We're waiting on news of Ben. He injured himself last Sunday and we're hoping he's going to be ok but won't know until later this week. If it's locking then it could be cartilage and if it's cartilage then he'll need an operation and that would just about sum up our luck at the moment."
