Gunning suspended for Forest Green’s second leg against Tranmere

Forest Green will be without Gavin Gunning for the second leg of their play-off semi final against Tranmere.

Gunning was sent off after only 15 minutes of the first leg at Prenton Park for kicking out at Jay Harris and he is suspended for Monday’s decisive clash.

Reuben Reid was left out of the squad for the first game and, with Forest Green needing to overturn a 1-0 deficit, the striker could be recalled.

George Williams missed the final two games of the regular season with a twisted ankle but he returned as a substitute in the first game on Friday and could be pushing for a recall to the starting line up.

Tranmere have no new injury problems as they look to secure a place in the final at Wembley.

Manager Micky Mellon may name an unchanged team, although he has the likes of Jonathan Smith available should he wish to tweak things.

Luke McCullough (knee), Mark Ellis (knee), Ishmael Miller (hamstring) and Evan Gumbs remain long term absentees for Tranmere.

Rovers are bidding to return to League One for the first time since 2014, while Forest Green have never featured in the third tier.
