Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Rotherham United and Shrewsbury Town, Wycombe Wanderers will be looking to regain top position in the standings when they face Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park. The Chairboys have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the English third tier.
Wycombe are level on points with league leaders Ipswich Town ahead of the trip to Birkenhead, and given Tranmere’s poor home record, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the promotion-chasing side. The Super Whites have registered only two wins at home ground so far this season, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. You should know that in their last meeting in the League One (2012), Wycombe Wanderers recorded a 2-1 win over Tranmere Rovers.
Highlighted Player (Ollie Banks):
Ollie Banks is an English footballer who plays for League One side Tranmere Rovers. The Rotherham local who was born on the 21st of Septemeber, 1992, joined Rotherham United in 2010 and made his professional debut in May 2011 the following season.
Incidentally, his debut game would also mark his first professional goal in football and even his final appearance for The Millers, who released him in 2012. During the next couple of years, Banks played for several Sixth and Seven tier teams before signing a professional contract with Chesterfield FC in September 2013. Banks made over 90 appearances for the club, scoring 15 goals and helping them earn promotion to League One at the end of the 13/14 season.
A notable spell at Oldham Athletic succeeded his time at The Spireties before he finally joined Tranmere Rovers in May 2018. The 27-year-old who predominantly plays as a central midfielder is known for his dynamism and versatility.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
