Tranmere Rovers vs Salford City Live Stats & Betting Odds

Tranmere Rovers Prediction – Can Tranmere use home advantage?

Although it’s been a tough start to their return to League One, Tranmere Rovers have managed to keep their heads above water in the third tier as they sit in 18th place and hold a 3-point cushion above the relegation zone, but their attentions now turn to the EFL Trophy tonight with a top of the table Northern Group C clash with League Two outfit, Salford City.

Tranmere registered a 2-1 home win over Aston Villa Under 21’s in their opening group match, and overall, Rovers have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches in all competitions under manager, Micky Mellon, which was a 5-0 thumping away at Sunderland.

However, recent wins against Coventry City and MK Dons should give the hosts plenty of confidence in getting a result tonight, but as with all cup games, the straight win markets can be difficult to negotiate.

Instead, 9 of Tranmere’s last 13 matches in all competitions have seen both teams score and with forward trio Payne (4 goals), Jennings (3 goals) and Hepburn-Murphy (3 goals) in their ranks, Tranmere should at least hit the back of the net here.

Salford City Prediction – Can Salford City go clear at top?

Visitors Salford City actually do sit top of Group C by a slender 1-goal margin over tonight’s hosts, Tranmere Rovers, as Graham Alexander’s side secured a 2-0 home win over Aston Villa Under 21’s, and The Ammies bring a strong run of results into Tuesday night’s EFL Trophy clash.

Salford have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches overall in all competitions which was a 2-0 defeat away at Northampton Town, but Alexander’s side have registered important wins against Walsall, Cambridge United, Mansfield Town and Newport County in League Two which has seen them move up into a comfortable mid-table position in the fourth tier.

In addition, Salford held League One side, Burton Albion, to a 1-1 draw in Saturday’s FA Cup 1st round, so they’re more than capable of holding their own up at Prenton Park in this EFL Trophy encounter.

6 of Salford’s last 8 away matches in all competitions have also resulted in both teams scoring and the visitors possess dangerous forwards Rooney (3 goals) and Jervis (2 goals) in attack, so they too look likely to notch here tonight.


Key-Facts – Tranmere Rovers vs Salford City

  • 9 of Tranmere’s last 13 matches in all competitions have seen both teams score
  • 6 of Salford’s last 8 away matches in all competitions have seen both teams score
  • This will be the first ever encounter between these two teams


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams will be eager to go clear at the top of Group C so we could well see both teams score as a result.
