Tranmere vs Shrewsbury
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 5 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Prenton Park (Birkenhead).

The Rovers will try their best to make the most of this home tie. They are in desperate need of points and coupled with the struggles of Shrewsbury on the road, a positive result looks likely for home fans this weekend. But taking into account the recent domination of Sam Ricketts’s men in h2h clashes, a clean sheet is probably ruled out for the hosts.

Tranmere vs Shrewsbury Prediction

The Rovers are on an unbeaten run of four games in front of the home crowd and scored twice or more in all these ties. In fact, only once this whole season has the team failed to score two or more goals at this venue, and it was against Hull, a team from the Championship.

On the other hand, Ricketts’s men were winless in eight of their former nine matches on the road and were so in nine of their last eleven overall ties as well.

As such, count on the hosts to put up a great fight and avoid the loss at the least this weekend.

In regards to goals, the guests of the day have never failed to find the back of the net at this stadium, and in fact, scored a total of ten goals from the last two clashes.

Consequentially, the BTTS option holds great potential here.
