Tranmere could be without ever-present defender Ben Gibson for the FA Cup second-round clash with Chesterfield.
The on-loan Middlesbrough defender has sustained a minor knock to his thigh and is rated as doubtful.
"He's just carrying a knock on his thigh so there's not a great deal we can do," Rovers boss Ronnie Moore told Press Association Sport.
"But we'll see how he is. Hopefully he'll be fit for us and he'll be a big miss for us if he's not."
Ash Taylor is in contention to fill the void if Gibson misses out as is West Brom youngster Donervon Daniel, who could be handed a senior debut after moving to Prenton Park on loan last week.
Fellow loanees Liam Palmer and Jake Cassidy have been made unavailable by Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves, their respective parent clubs.
Cassidy's fellow forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro (broken metatarsal) remains sidelined.
