The visitors started the new non-league season in a rather poor fashion, but they grew in form drastically over the past couple of months. Liam Watson’s troops won four and drew one of past five matches across competitions. The three-win thread in their respective division helped the team escape the danger area as Southport now sit 18th after 17 rounds.

Southport notched at least two goals in each of four FA Cup wins over Farsley Celtic, Curzon Ashton, Ashton United and Boreham Wood since September. Can they maintain such record against the likes of Tranmere?

Tranmere vs Southport: Head-to-head

These two likes battled it out together in the 2016/17 National League campaign.

Tranmere Rovers took four points from two clashes against the Sandgrounders on the occasion.

This will be the fifth head to head meeting between the two outfits.

Super White Army won and drew two apiece so far, both wins coming at their Prenton Park.

Tranmere vs Southport: Prediction

The hosts have significantly improved after their previous meeting with Southport. They made it all the way to League Two where they sit 7th in the ladder after 19 rounds this season. However, the head coach Micky Mellon has huge problems with the lack of meticulousness at the back as his men tend to concede goals frequently.

Super White Army shipped as many as five on Tuesday when they fell 5-2 away at Grimsby Town. They conceded three or more goals on three different occasions in last five matches in all competitions. Since the quality is by far on Tranmere’s side, we find the home win & BTTS a standout pick at the odds of 3.10 here.
