Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Tranmere Rovers square off against each other at the People’s Pension Stadium on day 9 of the new League Two campaign. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for Crawley, and, as a result, they sit in the 13th place in the standings ahead of the visit of Tranmere. The Reds proved their worth in a 1-1 draw with Salford, and they are surely capable of matching the Rovers at home ground.
Tranmere quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Leyton Orient, with the team beating Southend 2-0 at the weekend. However, away win should not be considered this time out as Tranmere are not regarded as good travellers. A close encounter is on the horizon at the People’s Pension Stadium, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.

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 (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.
