Tranmere captain James Wallace is set to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines after learning he requires knee surgery.

The former Everton midfielder limped out of Rovers' 2-1 victory over Chesterfield in December with medial knee ligament damage.

It was initially hoped Wallace, 21, would only face a one-month absence but the damage has proved to be more serious than first feared.

Manager Ronnie Moore told Tranmere's official website: "It looks like James' operation will go ahead next week, which is him done for the season.

"So that's disappointing because he's been a big miss for us. He's a class act and he's hard to replace."
