Tyrone's power boosts Rovers
Tranmere boss Ray Mathias is pleased with how Tyrone Loran has slotted back into the team.

Former Manchester City midfielder Loran, 22, played his first game of the season at Sheffield Wednesday after five weeks on the sidelines with a knee ligament problem.

Mathias said: "Tyrone needed a game and I was pleased that he got those 75 minutes under his belt. He is going to be a lot sharper for it.

"I felt we need Tyrone in that role, he is a destroyer. He gets about the opposition.

"Tyrone can pass and play as well but he is primarily a defensive midfielder and he compliments Gary Jones very well," he told the Liverpool Echo.

Meanwhile, Jones and fellow midfielder Shane Nicholson are both doubtful for Saturday's home game with Peterborough.

Jones suffered a knee injury against the Owls, while Nicholson is still being troubled by the toe injury which forced him to miss the game.
