Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Blackpool and Tranmere Rovers, the two out-of-form sides, take on each other at Bloomfield Road in what is expected to be a lively contest. Blackpool aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth, and seeing that the Super Whites want to escape the relegation zone, both teams are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s football match. The Seasiders recorded their last league win on December 7, 2019, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course in the League One.
Tranmere Rovers head into the match following the FA Cup clash against Watford, meaning that the tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the away team in the Bloomfield Road clash. You should know that the Seasiders emerged triumphant in their last meeting in Blackpool.
Highlighted Player (Jay Spearing):
After impressing in Liverpool’s youth academy, Jay Spearing made 30 appearances in the league for the first team. However, the English midfielder was playing below expectations in the Premier League and, as a result, he was sent on loan to Leicester City in 2010.
Spearing played for Bolton Wanderers on loan as well and in 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Trotters. He scored three goals, while providing six assists for his teammates in 37 appearances for Bolton in the 2016/2017 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship.
Jay Spearing, who was born in Wallasey, England on November 25, 1988, has yet to make his England debut. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and left midfielder as well. Jay Spearing has a deal with Bolton Wanderers which expires in the summer of 2021.
Highlighted Team (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
