Our prediction for this League 2 match:
One Call Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Mansfield and Tranmere, the two teams who failed to impress in their season openers. Mansfield suffered a 2-0 loss to Salford at the weekend, while Tranmere were beaten by Stevenage (1-2) on Matchday . The Yellows failed to turn their dominance in ball possession and goal attempts into goals against the Lions, but they are surely capable of matching Tranmere on home soil. Important midfielder George Lapslie is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, continue to rely on experienced forward Kane Hemmings, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend. Tranmere, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. In their last meeting at the venue the Yellows defeated the Super Whites 2-0.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Bowery):
Born in Nottingham, England, on July 2, 1991, Jordan Bowery is a professional footballer who plays for Mansfield Town. Bowery played for a number of English clubs, but we should mentioned the notable ones only.
The Mansfield No. 9 was a part of the likes of Aston Villa, Bradford City, Rotherham United, and Crewe Alexandra in the past. Jordan Bowery joined the Yellows in the summer of 2020, signing for the club on a free transfer. He made his Mansfield Town debut in the League two in a goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers on September 12, 2020.
Bowery scored his first goal for the Yellows in a 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient on September 19, 2020. Centre-forward is the position that suits him the most, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. His preferred foot is right. Jordan Bowery has never played for the England national team.
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.
