Tranmere Rovers vs Gillingham - Man Utd defender Cameron set for Tranmere debut

On-loan defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is in contention to make his Tranmere debut against Gillingham.

The 22-year-old joined Rovers from Manchester United at the start of the week, having spent last season on loan in League One with Scunthorpe which followed on from a short spell at Leeds.

Corey Blackett-Taylor remains suspended following his dismissal at Bristol Rovers, but Oliver Banks will be available for selection having served his one-game ban.

Morgan Ferrier (knee), Jake Caprice (ankle), Mark Ellis (knee), Evan Gumbs (ACL) and Ishmael Miller (hamstring) are all sidelined.

Midfielder Ben Pringle – who helped Tranmere win promotion during a loan spell last season – could make his Gillingham debut.

Pringle signed for the Gills earlier this week, reuniting with boss Steve Evans who he had played under at Rotherham.

Evans made nine changes for the midweek home Trophy defeat by Colchester, when summer signing Mikael Mandron scored his first goal for the Gills to put himself in contention for a league start.

Midfielder Matty Willock has been carrying a hamstring problem and will be assessed, while former captain Gabriel Zakuani has left the club after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
