Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Prenton Park will host Friday’s game between Tranmere and Mansfield, the two playoffs-chasing teams. The two sides are level on points ahead of Matchday 36, meaning that a close encounter is on the cards. The Super Whites do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing four of their last five league fixtures, but they should not be written off just yet. Fit-again attacker Paul Glatzel is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
The Yellows, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive league win. Mansfield Town proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Bradford City and Exeter, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting at the venue the two sides played out a 1-1 draw, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on BTTS.
