Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere and Barrow face each other at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon with both sides looking to pick up all three points from the season opener. The Super White Army missed out on a spot in the playoffs last season and, no doubt, they are determined to make amends for the unsuccessful League Two campaign. Keep in mind, though, that several players left the club earlier this summer, including Kyle Jameson, Josh Dacres-Cogley, Ethan Bristow, and Florent Hoti.
The Bluebirds, on the other hand, did well to crush Newcastle United U21 4-1 in a warm-up game, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Tranmere defenders should have Barrow summer signing Jamie Proctor at bay. In their last encounter in the English fourth tier Tranmere defeated Barrow 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on BTTS.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Barrow):
Founded back in 1901, Barrow is an English club that competes in the League two, the fourth tier of the English football system. The Bluebirds are well known for their blue shirts with white details, but yellow is the dominant colour of their away jersey. Barrow play home games at Holker Street, the stadium which can hold up to 5,045 spectators.
The venue was opened in 1909, and it has to be noted that no fewer than 16,874 people attended the FA Cup match between Barrow and Swansea in January, 1954. The Bluebirds have won two FA Trophies (1989/90, 2009/10), with the team lifting the Lancashire Senior Cup trophy in the 1954/55.
The likes of James Bell, Jim Collins, Andy McLaren, Jimmy Mulholland, Jackie Robertson, Barry Diamond, and George King are the most notable footballers who played for Barrow in the past. It has to be noted that the Bluebirds have never competed in the English top flight.
