John Achterberg's season could be over because of a knee injury.
Tranmere goalkeeper John Achterberg's season could be over because of a knee injury.
The 35-year-old was stretchered off against Yeovil earlier this month and scans will discover the full extent of the damage.
"John's injury looks serious and he will have a scan on his knee," manager Ronnie Moore told the club's official website.
"It looks like that might be the end of the season for him. He has been so unlucky with injuries."
Tranmere have added young Preston goalkeeper Ben Hinchcliffe on a one-month loan deal to provide cover for Gavin Ward.
Meanwhile, Moore has insisted that midfielder Stephen Jennings is still in his plans.
Jennings is currently on loan at Hereford and his impressive displays have not gone unnoticed at Prenton Park.
"Steve went there to get some games and at the moment he is still in my plans for next season," Moore said.
"He just can't get a game here at the minute due to the experience we have with [Paul] McLaren, [John] Mullin and [Jason] McAteer in midfield."
