Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere take on Notts County at their Prenton Park in the League Two round 26. The Rovers have been in a splendid form of late, with the team winning each of their last three league games and they must be high on confidence ahead of Monday’s encounter. Connor Wood limped off with injury in the last league match, with James Norris likely to step up.
Notts County, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Doncaster and Morecambe and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A lively contest is on the horizon and we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Notts County are on a four-game losing run on the road. Tranmere defenders should have Macaulay Langstaff at bay as he scored a hat-trick in the triumph over Morecambe.
Highlighted Player (David McGoldrick):
David McGoldrick is an Irish international who was born in Nottingham, England on 29 November, 1987. McGoldrick was eligible to play for both England and Republic of Ireland and he decided to play for the Irish national team. The striker made his Ireland debut on 18 November, 2014, in a 4-1 win over USA and it has to be noted that he provided assists for Robbie Brady and Anthony Pilkington.
McGoldrick began his senior career at Nots County and he played for the likes of Northampton, Bournemouth, Port Vale, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry City in the past as well. The Irish attacker he joined Ipswich Town on loan until the end of the 2012/2013 campaign and he signed a permanent deal with the club in July 2013.
David McGoldrick scored 14 goals in 31 appearances for the Tractor Boys in the 2013/2014 Championship campaign and that is considered his most successful season. You should have in mind that his Ipswich teammates Daryl Murphy and Stephen Hunt backed David for his first-ever Ireland call-up.
Highlighted Team (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
