Football - McNulty set for Rovers Return

Tranmere will welcome back defender Jim McNulty when they travel to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United.

The 28-year-old defender missed the 1-0 Boxing Day win at Shrewsbury after picking up his fifth yellow card but should reclaim his place in the Rovers starting XI on his return.

Skipper James Wallace was replaced in the 72nd minute during that victory at New Meadow after taking a knock to the head and it remains to be seen if the former Stockport man will recover in time.

However, fellow midfielder Andy Robinson made a goal-scoring return to the starting XI, despite having been out since August with a knee injury, and could retain his place in the centre of the park after impressing.
