Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Prenton Park pits together Tranmere and Gillingham, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Super Whites aim to escape the danger zone, with the team eyeing their fifth home win of the process. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but forward Harvey Saunders is hoping for a spot in the starting line-up.
The Gills, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Salford and a triumph over Tranmere could see them climb to the playoffs berth. As the visitors will go for a win as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Stephen Clemence is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Lions at the weekend. You should know that nine goals in total have been netted in the previous three meetings between the two sides.
