Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Prenton Park pits together Tranmere Rovers and Burton Albion. Tranmere Rovers are on a five-game winless run in the League One and, as a result, they sit in the danger zone in the standings ahead of the visit of Burton Albion. The Super Whites are determined to give fans something to cheer about and we are positive that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Burton Albion.
The Brewers are undefeated in previous five league fixtures and they would have defeated Portsmouth on the road on Matchday 9 if defender hadn’t pick up red card after 21 minutes. The experienced defender missed the Tranmere game through suspension, but given the Rovers’ poor form, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the match.
Highlighted Player (Darren Potter):
Darren Potter is a former Liverpool school boy captain who currently plays for Rotherham United in the Championship. Born in Liverpool on December 21, 1984, Potter made two appearances for the Reds in the English top flight, but you should know that he featured in Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final in the 2004/2005 season, coming from the bench against Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16 of the elite competition.
Darren Potter is a right-footed central midfielder, who plays as a defensive midfielder as well. The 183-cm tall footballer was part of Milton Keynes Dons from 2011 to 2017 when he signed a two-year contract with Rotherham United.

Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034.
