Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Prenton Park will host Tuesday’s football game between Tranmere Rovers and Peterborough United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the League One standings ahead of Matchday 9. The Whites are on a four-game winless run in the English third tier and, as a result, they are only two points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Peterborough United.
Micky Mellon’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, therefore, we do not believe that home win should be considered. The Posh, on the other hand, are eager to secure promotion to the Championship and seeing that they hammered Rochdale 6-0 in their last league match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors, who scored 15 goals in total in previous four league fixtures. Ivan Toney scored a hat-trick in the 6-0 win over Rochdale, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.

Stefan Payne’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Tranmere Rovers should expire on June 30, 2021.
In the 2017/2018 season the English defender made it to the EFL Trophy final with Shrewsbury, but Lincoln City proved to be a big catch for the Blues in the title game.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
