Sutton United will look to turn around their recent league form when they face Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.

The Yellow Army have lost of their last four matches in EFL League Two, but were victors in both the Football League Trophy and FA Cup this past week.

Like their visitors, Tranmere are struggling in the league, winless in their last three, but also experienced success in the Football League Trophy and FA Cup.

Team news

After a number of changes in midweek, Tranmere manager Micky Mellon will have nearly a full squad to select from this weekend.

Nathaniel Knight-Percival was the only player to start in both the FA Cup win against Crawley Town and the comeback win in midweek. Ross Doohan will again start in goal with Joe Murphy still absent.

Sutton will be without Omar Bugiel, who is away on international duty with Lebanon and Harry Beautyman, out with a shoulder injury. Richie Bennett is suspended while Bradley House is also out.

Craig Eastmond, Louis John and Jon Barden are all in contention to return for the Yellow Army for the trip to Prenton Park.

Predicted lineups

Tranmere Rovers: Doohan; MacDonald, Knight-Percival, Clarke, Dacres-Cogley; Spearing, O'Connor; Feeney, Watson, McManaman; Nevitt

Sutton United: Bouzanis; Wyatt, Rowe, Goodliffe, Kizzi; Boldewijn, Smith, Milsom, Ajiboye; Olaofe, Wilson
