Bopp Out & Zola A Doubt

Bopp Out & Zola A Doubt

Midfielder Bopp is out of tomorrows clash with Barnsley after picking up and injury in Saturdays defeat against Brighton and Zola is rated as doubtful.

Bopp is out with an abductor strain that will see him sidelined for a few games, giving Rix the opportunity to get himself back into the starting 11.

Holland told the official site "Eugen is out of the Carling Cup match. He has strained an abductor muscle, which is very frustrating for him and for us, because we haven't suffered a muscle strain all summer."

"It is frustrating for Boppy because he had enjoyed a good pre-season and there had been some very encouraging signs from him, operating in that role on the right hand side. He was involved in three of the goals against Hull from that position and was probably our best bet for a goal at Wrexham."

Zola is also rated as a doubt after getting a heavy knock in the opening game of the season. Zola has been plaged with injury problems while at Tranmere and fans will hope this is not a sign of things to come.

Holland said "Calvin got a knock on his ankle early on in the game and we have worked with him yesterday and then again today. The Physio's have told me that there has been a big improvement with him, but if that improvement is enough for him to start tomorrow remains to be seen."

The front two could be in for a complete reshuffle with the injury to Zola and Miller failing to impress. "I would pick two from three. It would be between Shaun Miller, Elding and Pope. I thought Anthony gave us something when he came on. The ball was sticking up there a lot more and he managed to get himself into one or two threatening positions. He is looking better all the time, but could he get through an entire 90 minutes at this stage is something we will have to consider because he hasn't played a lot of football over the last few months. .
