Fleetwood Town head coach Joey Barton has named his 18-man squad for Saturday's Sky Bet League One fixture against Tranmere Rovers.

Young goalkeeper Billy Crellin starts for the first time in the EFL after impressing in the First Round Emirates FA Cup tie away at Barnet - which saw Crellin keep a clean sheet in Town's 2-0 win in North London.

Ashley Eastham will partner Harry Souttar in the back four, with Lewie Coyle and Danny Andrew occupying the full-back areas. This will be Eastham's first league start since August when Wycombe Wanderers were the visitors to Highbury.

Wes Burns starts on his birthday, with the forward looking to build on from his first goal of the season in the Cod Army's 5-2 win over Oldham Athletic in the Trophy.

Here is how Town will lineup against Tranmere:

Town XI: Crellin (GK), Coyle, Eastham, Souttar, Andrew, Rossiter, Coutts (C), Dempsey, Burns, Morris, Madden.

The Bench: Cairns (GK), Evans, McAleny, Dunne, Hunter, Biggins, Sowerby.
