Football - Rovers setback as skipper suspended

Tranmere skipper James Wallace will begin a three-match suspension when Ronnie Moore's men entertain Walsall.

The central midfielder was dismissed in Rovers' last game against Wolves, the seventh red card of the season for the Sky Bet League One club, and so begins a three-match suspension.

Everton loanee Matthew Kennedy joined on Thursday and could make his debut at Prenton Park although Kris Peterson is back at Liverpool, while Barnsley defender Jim McNulty has also returned to his parent club.

Ian Goodison is still out as he makes his way back from a thigh problem while fellow defender Danny Holmes is also expected to miss out with a groin problem.
