Tranmere have been hit with an injury blow following their match against Aldershot, after it was revealed that Steve Jennings faces a month out with a groin strain.

The Tranmere captain picked up the injury in the 60th minute of the 1-1 draw with Aldershot and walked off the pitch holding his groin, being replaced by Taylor Tombides. The injury came about when Jennings pulled up chasing after a ball with Aldershot defender Liam Wakefield. After the match, Tranmere boss Micky Mellon was quoted as 'fearful' and he was right to be after a scan revealed the extent of the midfielder's injury.

Speaking to Tranmere's official website, Mellon said:

"I spoke to Steve after the match and he said he was fine but I was worried and I was right to be. Steve went for a scan today at Arrowe Park and it's been confirmed that he'll be out for about a month with a groin strain. Obviously it's a big blow for us as Steve is a great player but we have players who can come in and replace him. We should be ok. We may look into recalling Mitchell Duggan as a precaution."
