Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Hartlepool and Tranmere face each other at Victoria Park on day 24 of the new League Two campaign. The Pools aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Mansfield, but they will have a mountain to climb in the clash against the title-chasing visitors. Hartlepool are eyeing their 8th home win of the process, but beating the in-form Super Whites is easier said than done.
Tranmere, on the other hand, defeated Barrow 2-0 on Boxing Day, with the team extending their winning run to five games. The Super Whites are determined to secure automatic promotion to the League One, and seeing that they head into Wednesday’s clash high on spirits, away win should be considered. Fit-again attacker Nicky Maynard, who managed to find the net in each of the previous two league fixtures, will be the man to keep an eye on in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Liam Feeney ):
Liam Feeney is an English footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a midfielder. Born in Hammersmith, England on January 21, 1987, Feeney started his senior career at Hayes, and after scoring eight goals in 46 appearances for the club, he moved to Salisbury City in 2007.
The experienced footballer for several other English clubs as well, and, no doubt, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth, and Bolton Wanderers are the most notable ones. Nowadays Liam Feeney plays for Tranmere Rovers in the League two on loan from Blackpool. His main position is right wing, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left winger as well.
Feeney made his League Two debut with Tranmere in a 3-0 loss to Cheltenham Town on September 19, 2020. His preferred foot is right, and he has a contract with the Whites until May 2021. The experienced winger has a dual citizenship (England/Jamaica).
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.
