Tranmere Rovers Prediction – Can Tranmere pull away from relegation zone?

In what could prove to be a crucial 1-0 win away from home at Coventry City last time out in League One, Tranmere Rovers registered an important three points which has lifted them away from the bottom three of the division, but they’ll be keen to move further away when they play host to Southend United on Friday night.

Tranmere have produced mixed results so far this season which has left them down near the wrong end of the table, but recent wins against Burton Albion 2-1 at home and the aforementioned 1-0 win at Coventry City should give Micky Mellon’s side encouragement in getting a result on Friday night.

Although Tranmere Rovers possess what looks like an inconsistent home record of 2-2-2 13/9, the hosts have actually lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at Prenton Park, which includes wins over Bolton Wanderers and Burton Albion.

Forward, Stefan Payne (4 goals) impressed against Coventry and he’ll likely lead the line again on Friday night as Tranmere look to return to winning ways at home.

Southend United Prediction – Can Southend avoid fourth straight defeat?

It’s been a woeful start to the new League One season for Southend United who currently sit second from bottom but had it not been for Bolton’s points deduction, The Shrimpers could well be sitting bottom of the third tier by now.

10 defeats out of their first 12 matches of this new campaign has already resulted in the departure of their former manager, Kevin Bond, while his replacement, Gary Waddock, now has the unenviable task of trying to steady the ship at Roots Hall and make his Southend side a competitive outfit once again.

There have been numerous defeats already for the visitors this season but perhaps the biggest blow was inflicted upon them at home by fellow strugglers, AFC Wimbledon, in last Saturday’s crushing 4-1 defeat at home at Roots Hall.

This latest loss became Southend’s fourth defeat in five matches, confidence may well be fragile at best when they make the long trip up to Birkenhead for another important bottom half encounter against Tranmere.


Key-Facts – Tranmere Rovers v Southend United

  • Tranmere Rovers have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at home in League One
  • Southend have lost 10 of their first 12 matches of this season’s League One
  • Southend have lost 5 of their first 6 away matches in the third tier


Betting Tips Verdict

Tranmere Rovers will have been boosted by the recent result at Coventry and they stand a decent chance of getting something in this clash against a beleaguered Southend outfit.
