Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cheltenham, Bolton will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Tranmere Rovers on Matchday 19. The Trotters recorded three wins in the previous four home games in all competitions, but they will have to prove their worth on the field this time out. It has to be noted that Liam Gordon will not be available for selection after re-joining Dagenham on loan.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Exeter, with the Grecians putting an end to Tranmere’s three-game winning run on the travels. Bolton did well to beat Tranmere in their last meeting at University of Bolton Stadium, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. The Trotters are after their fourth home win of the season.
Highlighted Player (Gethin Jones):
Born in Perth, Australia on October 13, 1995, Gethin Jones is a professional footballer who plays for Carlisle United in the League Two as a defender. Jones is a product of the Wrexham football school, but he played for Everton at youth level as well.
The pacey right-back made only one appearance for the Toffees as he played against Krasnodar in the Europa League 2013/2014 season. Gethin Jones played for the likes of Plymouth Argyle (loan), Barnsley (loan), Fleetwood Town, and Mansfield Town (loan) as well before joining his current club Carlisle United. Jones is eligible to play for Australia and Wales despite playing for the Wales U17, U19, and U21 teams in the past.
He made his League Two debut with Carlisle United in a 3-2 win over Stevenage on September 14, 2019. Jones’ main position is right-back, but he is used as both right midfielder and left-back as well. His preferred foot is right.
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.
