Tranmere vs Gillingham
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 7 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Prenton Park (Birkenhead).
Tranmere had to go through the playoffs to finally get promoted to this promised land. And the challenges of the higher division are expectedly taking its toll on them. Their sole win has come against the absolute worst in the group, Bolton, and excluding the fixture, the team has suffered against the rest of the opponents.
Considering this is a home tie, fans will surely expect an improved performance from the side.
Gillingham too has taken the same route as their foes for the day. If not for their match against Bolton, the squad would have remained winless and would be placed deep down in the league standings.
Tranmere vs Gillingham Head-to-head (h2h)
- Gillingham won the last two games.

Tranmere vs Gillingham Prediction
Both sides need to thank Bolton with all their hearts, or either would have posted stats along the lines of being winless for the last ten match-days.
At present, the home advantage definitely gives some leverage to Tranmere, and they have had superior h2h stats in the past at this venue. Keep in mind that not only have they never failed to score in front of the home crowd against this opponent but, they have scored twice or more in every tie bar once.
Count on the hosts to avoid a loss this Saturday.
Going on, the fact that the hosts are a new addition to this league, along with Gillingham scoring twice or more in four of their former five overall matches, and in every h2h visit they have made to this venue bar once – makes BTTS a tasty proposition.
