Wilson Fit For Tranmere

Brian Wilson is expected to be fit for the visit of Tranmere Rovers to Essex tomorrow, with U's boss Joe Dunne confirming that the side doesn't currently have any injury concerns ahead of an important run of fixtures.

With the U's still sitting precariously within the relegation zone as the season nears its conclusion, it is of the utmost importance that the Irishman has everyone fit and available for the games ahead.

Tomorrow sees promotion-chasing Tranmere arrive in town having set the pace for the majority of the season, but the U's have no injury concerns going into the game after Wilson had missed out at Bramall Lane last week.

Speaking to BBC Essex, Dunne confirmed: "We're confident that Brian [Wilson] will be in and around the squad again tomorrow, whilst Kem Izzet and Mark Cousins are both back in training, so I don't think we have any injuries.

"Tony [Flynn] has worked hard and we've put lots of thought into when, where and how we train; when you take out the development group we only have a small squad, so keeping them all fit is crucial."

Rovers themselves have also had a number of injury concerns over the past few weeks which has coincided with the Merseysider's loss of form and the beginnings of their slide out of the top two, but Ronnie Moore has bolstered his squad in the past two days.

Dunne also suffered a similar fate as Craig Eastmond and Sanchez Watt returned to Arsenal early through injury, seeing the U's good turn of form upon Dunne's appointment fall by the wayside as a result.

"As an assistant manager, I always thought managers sometimes used injuries as an excuse for the sake of it," he continued. "But now I'm in the hotseat you realise how much it can affect a team's performance.

"We lost two loanees that disrupted the way we had been playing, but we've now finally replaced them with quality - that's why you have squads."
