12 January 2021

Tranmere Rovers will turn their attention to another cup competition on Wednesday night to face Leicester City U21s in round three of the Papa John’s Trophy at Prenton Park in a 7pm kick off.

Rovers edged out Manchester City U21s in the previous knockout round to reach this stage and will now face the only U21s team left in the competition.

Leicester U21s collected six out of nine points in their group stage before knocking out Salford City on penalties in the last round.

Liam Ridehalgh took a knock to his ribs on Saturday and is a doubt for this game.

Following the Barnsley game, Keith Hill reported that it will be the same players available again for Wednesday with several members of the squad out with injury, illness and Covid-19 issues.
