Tranmere Rovers Prediction

Tranmere’s game at Port Vale was postponed on Saturday so the visitors have had a 10-day rest prior to Tuesday night’s match against Northampton Town, and having suffered back-to-back defeats in recent matches with losses against Swindon Town and Mansfield Town, I daresay Micky Mellon’s boys will now be itching to put things right at Prenton Park this evening.

Tranmere Rovers currently occupy a top half position in League Two following promotion from the National League back to the Football League at the end of last season, and the hosts have held their own so far in this campaign.

Prior to these recent back-to-back defeats, Tranmere had put together a four match unbeaten run which included wins against Morecambe and Cheltenham Town along with points picked up in draws with Yeovil Town and Macclesfield Town.

But it’s been their solid form at Prenton Park which has been the highlight of their campaign so far with a record of 8-4-2 18/7 which includes just one defeat from their last nine matches on home soil. In addition, Rovers have kept 8 clean sheets from their 14 home matches.

At the other end, James Norwood (18 goals) has been lethal in front of goal this season.


Key-Facts – Tranmere Rovers v Northampton Town

  • Tranmere have lost just 1 of their last 9 at Prenton Park
  • Tranmere have racked up 8 clean sheets at home this season
  • Northampton Town have won just 1 of their last 6 away from home


Northampton Town Prediction

While Tranmere Rovers were catching some rest, Northampton Town slumped to a heavy 4-0 defeat at home to Colchester United which left Keith Curle’s side in a lowly 17th place ion League Two with a difficult upcoming trip to Birkenhead this Tuesday night to face Tranmere Rovers.

That loss to Colchester became Northampton Town’s third defeat in five matches in the fourth tier and followed earlier losses to Forest Green Rovers and Cambridge United, both of which were away from home.

In fact, Northampton’s only recent success was a resounding 3-0 home win over Curle’s old employers, Carlisle United, but an away record of 3-4-7 18/23 would suggest they’ll have their work cut out to get anything at Prenton Park.

Just one win from their last six matches on their travels underlines this point, along with just two clean sheets on the road.

Betting Tips Verdict

Tranmere Rovers have been hard to beat at Prenton Park and with striker Norwood in devastating form, the hosts should earn at least a point, if not all three tonight.
