Shrewsbury vs Tranmere Prediction & Match Preview

Shrewsbury vs Tranmere
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 25 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Greenhous Meadow (Shrewsbury)

For Tranmere relegation is guaranteed as they face Shrewsbury away from home. The latter has returned to winning ways with a narrow win over Doncaster. This will give them a mental advantage over the visitors.

Apart from a goalless draw against Bristol Rovers the away team lost all their 5 recent matches in the league. The latest of those defeats was against third-place Wycombe last weekend.

We can expect a close game and home advantage may play its part on Tuesday.

Shrewsbury vs Tranmere: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Shrewsbury has 3 wins in their 5 previous head to head matches.
  • They are currently on a 2 match winning run against Tranmere.
  • Three of the recent h2h ended with a common score of 2-1.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 5 meetings across all venues.
  • In the 4 h2h matches at this ground, the hosts have won twice and lost once.

Shrewsbury vs Tranmere: Prediction

The hosts have scored just one goal in their last 3 matches. Both sides have scored less than a goal per game this season. All 5 of the previous Shrewsbury games ended with less than 2.5 goals. The same trend is visible in 3 matches of Tranmere as well. So I am backing a close game with very little goals.

Shrewsbury has won more h2h recently. They are high on morale after the recent win against Doncaster. Meanwhile, a losing streak is going on for the visitors. I don’t see the away team upsetting a team higher up in the points table. Also, the hosts have won the last 2 head to head games in front of their home crowd. So I think they will have a narrow win on Tuesday.
