Football - Rovers sweating on Koumas

Ex-Wales international midfielder Jason Koumas is top of Tranmere's injury concerns prior to the clash with Swindon.

PA Sport Report

Koumas played through the pain barrier in the loss to Port Vale on Saturday, scoring his fourth goal in his last seven games, but needed half a dozen pain injections in his toe to feature. The quick turnaround is now likely to work against him.

Centre-back Stephen Arthurworrey came off against Vale and is struggling with a lower back injury while fellow defender Danny Holmes, absent on Saturday, will be assessed late on Monday after picking up a knee problem.

The same ailment kept midfielder Steve Jennings out last time around and he faces a similar late test. Stand-in boss John McMahon admits Rovers need to wait for the swelling to subside before making a judgement call.
