Football - Rovers duo return

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Abdulai Bell-Baggie are pushing for involvement against Coventry after the Tranmere attacking duo completed their rehabilitation from injury ahead of schedule.

Forward Akpa Akpro came off the bench to make his first appearance since suffering a broken metatarsal in October as the npower League One leaders overcame Crawley 2-0.

Former Rotherham winger Bell-Baggie did not make it on against the Red Devils but the lateral knee ligament victim was an unused substitute, featuring in the matchday squad for the first time in two months.

"You now look around at the bench and you've got options," boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"It's great when you know you've got players of quality that can hurt teams."

Moore's remaining injury absentee is skipper James Wallace, who has been out since the start of December with medial knee ligament damage.
