Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bristol Rovers will be looking to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League One when they host Tranmere Rovers at their Memorial Stadium on Tuesday evening. Bristol Rovers just can’t find their best form at the start of the season, with the team failing to find the net in the 2019/2020 League One campaign. Tuesday’s football match could be the turning point for the hosts and we are positive that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Tranmere Rovers.
The visitors, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 5-0 win over Bolton Wanderers with the team giving fans some cheer following back-to-back losses to the likes of Portsmouth and Hull City. Morgan Ferrier, who scored a brace for Tranmere in the triumph over the Trotters, is likely to lead Micky Mellon’s troops to yet another win in the English third tier.
Highlighted Player (Mark Little):
Mark Little is a right back who plays for Bristol City. Little started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wonderers and he made 27 appearances for the first team as well. He made his Wolves debut on 23 August, 2006 in the League Cup clash against Chesterfield.
After spending two years on loan at Northampton Town, Chesterfield and Peterborough United, he signed a permanent deal with Peterborough on 25 May, 2010. The defender scored three goals in 148 appearances for the ABAX Stadium outfit, but in 2014 turned down a new contract offer. Mark Little joined Bristol City on 1 July, 2014 and he has been playing for the Robins ever since.
The English footballer, who was born on 20 August, 1988 made 23 appearances for Bristol City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as midfielder as well.
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.
