McGurk returned ahead of schedule from a collapsed lung when he appeared as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 Good Friday loss to fellow promotion hopefuls Sheffield United at Prenton Park.

Playmaker Robinson (groin) watched on from the stands but also has a chance of featuring at Fratton Park having previously been ruled out of Rovers' Easter programme by Moore.

On-loan Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson sustained a recurrence of his troublesome knee problem against the Blades, with veteran Ian Goodison poised to deputise at centre-back

"Adam might be fit, Robbo might be fit," Moore told Tranmere's official website.

"Ben has hurt the knee he had the problem with and I'll be very surprised if he is going to be fit for Monday, but Goody is more than capable of doing a job for us."
