Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Prenton Park will host Tuesday’s football match between Tranmere and Leyton. Tranmere have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, but the midweek clash could be the turning point for them. The Rovers are eager to return to winning ways in the League Two, but they will have to do it without suspended Paul Lewis, who was sent off in the 1-0 loss to Newport.
Leyton, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. Given the importance of the match for the hosts, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but we are tempted to put our money on Tranmere this time out as Leyton made a slow start to the season.
