Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leyton Orient, Tranmere will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Barrow at Prenton Park on Matchday 23. The Super Whites are eyeing their fifth consecutive league win, with the team keeping a clean sheet in each of their last three games in all competitions. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced midfielder Jay Spearing, who scored the winner against Leyton.
The visitors, on the other hand, did well to eliminate Ipswich in the FA Cup, with the team keeping their third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions. Since both sides have been impressive at the back of late, we believe that under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Anyhow, the promotion-chasing hosts are closer to picking up all three points from the Boxing Day game than the visitors.
