Tranmere News and Form

The Rovers have held their own pretty well this season in League Two and they go into the weekend sitting in seventh place. They have only been beaten twice in league action this season and just once in their last nine (W4 D4). A home defeat against the bottom side in the league on the weekend looks unlikely. Tranmere are W3 D2 L1 at Prenton Park this term and there is a trend in those home wins. Each of them have been by a 1-0 scoreline. A Tranmere 1-0 correct score option is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 10th, 2018 at 3:21 pm).

Tranmere have five clean sheets in twelve league outings this term and they have shipped just two goals at Prenton Park. They have only scored four home goals, so going back to that 1-0 home win for them, it looks good. Under 1.5 goals also looks as if it will be worth a flutter at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 10th, 2018 at 3:21 pm) as well for the fixture. In three of their five home fixtures this season, Tranmere have been level at 0-0 at halftime.

Macclesfield News and Form

The Silkmen are on the hunt for their first win of the season. They, along with Tranmere actually, came up from the National League last season but their fortunes have gone in vastly different directions. Away from home in League Two Macclesfield have picked up just the one point from their six games. While they have scored in all but two of their six away games, they look pretty vulnerable and their defence has been battered at times. Macclesfield have conceded at least three goals in four of their six road games.

So far this term The Silkmen have played four games against sides currently in the top-seven and from those they took two draws and two one-goal margin defeats. So again, we may not be looking at heavy defeat for them in this one. Indeed, Tranmere to win by a one-goal margin is at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 10th, 2018 at 3:21 pm). Until something positive does happen for them, it’s pretty hard to risk backing them to break their duck.

Tranmere v Macclesfield Head to Head

There were four points collected by Macclesfield in their two league contests against Tranmere last season in the National League. They are ahead W2 D1 L1 in their last four games against Rovers. The overall head to head between them is even at four wins each and two draws. Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings.

Tranmere v Macclesfield Predictions

Tranmere to win: There is enough to warrant backing Tranmere, but we are simply sticking with the trend of their 1-0 home wins and backing the correct score option in their favour.
