Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Peninsula Stadium when Salford City and Tranmere Rovers face each other in the League Two round 25. The Lions have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Stevenage and Newport in the previous two league fixtures. Salford City aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the midweek clash. Defender Liam Shephard, who limped off with injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Tranmere.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, are eyeing their seventh consecutive league win, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Foley and Watson are pushing for a start for the visiting team after they got their names on the scoresheet in a 4-0 win over Scunthorpe.
Highlighted Player (Tom King):
Thomas Lloyd King is a professional footballer who plays for Newport County as a goalkeeper. Born in Plymouth, England, on March 9, 1995, Tom King played for the likes of Manchester 62, Portsmouth, and Crystal Palace during his youth career.
Despite signing a professional deal with Crystal Palace, the English shot-stopper did not see any game action with the Eagles at the senior level. Tom King moved to Millwall in the summer of 2014, signing a one-year deal with the capital club. After making only 11 appearances for the Lions in the League One, King joined League two side Newport County on June 7, 2019, signing a two-year deal with the South Wales outfit.
It has to be noted that Thomas Lloyd King played for the likes of Welling United, Braintree Town, Stevenage, and AFC Wimbledon on loan as well before signing a deal with Newport County. Tom King has one cap with the England U17 despite his dual citizenship (England/Wales).
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.
