Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunderland continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. The Black Cats recorded three wins in previous four home games at their Stadium of Light, with the team suffering back-to-back losses to the likes of Lincoln City and Wycombe Wanderers on the road. Sunderland aim to regain their spot in top six and they are seen as hot favourites to win Tuesday’s football match against Tranmere Rovers.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, are only one point clear of the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 15 and seeing that they were hammered by the Black Cats 5-0 in their last meeting at the Stadium of Light, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Experienced Irish winger Aiden McGeady will be one of the men to watch in the home side.
Highlighted Player (Duncan Watmore):
Duncan Watmore is an English footballer who started his youth career at the famous Manchester United football academy. The 175-cm-tall winger then joined Altrincham at the age of 16 and he continued playing for the lower-league club at senior level.
After scoring 15 goals in 48 appearances for the club in the league, Watmore moved to Sunderland in 2013, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Clitheroe and Curzon Ashton on loan as well during his spell with Altrincham.
During the 2014/2015 season he played 9 games for the Scottish Premier League club Hibernian, but he returned to Sunderland at the end of the campaign. Duncan Watmore has 13 caps for the England U21 team, but he has yet to make his debut with the senior team. His main position is winger, but he is capable of producing fine performances as centre-forward 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.
