Tranmere striker Bas Savage says he is delighted to be back playing in a Rovers shirt again after returning from a serious Achilles injury.

"It's been a long time, 11 months but it's good to be back," Savage told BBC Radio Merseyside.

Savage made his comeback in Rovers' 2-1 win against Southampton on Saturday and they now face Leeds at home on Tuesday.

"We needed the points and they're a top side and have ten goals in the last ten games, so it was a good result for us."

He added: "We take each game as it comes and Leeds is next. We'll try and get another positive result.

"We haven't put two wins back to back all season so hopefully we'll try and do that at home."

Savage, who joined Rovers from Millwall, made 38 league starts for Tranmere last season, scoring five goals.
