Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Prenton Park will host Saturday’s football game between Tranmere Rovers and Grimsby Town. The Super Whites are not enjoying a season to remember, but their recent performances in the League Two are surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Tranmere head into the match following back-to-back wins over Harrogate and Port Vale, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Grimsby Town.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Barrow, but given their anything but good away record in the League Two, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last encounter at Prenton Park Tranmere Rovers rolled over Grimsby Town 4-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. A man to watch in the away team will be experienced attacker James Vaughan, who scored a brace in the triumph over Port Vale.
