Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere Rovers play host to Scunthorpe United at their Prenton Park on day 4 of the new League Two campaign. Tranmere have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, with the team failing to find the net in the previous four league fixtures. Seeing that the Whites do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, home win should not be considered.
Scunthorpe, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Carlisle. The victory gave them a confidence boost, and given Tranmere’s poor form at the start of the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the underdogs. Jordan Hallam, who scored the winner against Carlisle United at the weekend, will be the man to keep an eye on in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Stefan Payne):
Born in Lambeth, England on August 10, 1991, Stefan Payne is an English footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a forward. Payne is a product of Croydon youth academy and he played for the likes of Sutton United, Fulham, Gillingham, Braintree Town, Aldershot Town, Sutton United, Macclesfield Town, Ebbsfleet United, AFC Hornchurch, Dover Athletic, Barnsley, Shrewsbury Town and Bristol Rovers before signing a permanent deal with Tranmere Rovers in the summer of 2019.
Stefan Payne has one cap with the England national football C team. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both right and left winger as well. Stefan Payne’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Tranmere Rovers should expire on June 30, 2021.
In the 2017/2018 season the English defender made it to the EFL Trophy final with Shrewsbury, but Lincoln City proved to be a big catch for the Blues in the title game.
Highlighted Team (Scunthorpe):
Founded back in 1899, Scunthorpe United are a professional football club that compete in League Two. The Iron wear sky blue and claret jerseys and claret shorts when playing on home soil, while green is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Scunthorpe United welcome their rivals at the Sands Venue Stadium, which can hold up to 9,088 people. The Iron recorded their biggest triumph (8-1) against Luton Town on April 24, 1965, with the team repeating the success 30 years later when they hammered Torquey United 8-1 in the New Division 3. As for the club’s biggest loss, the Iron were crushed by Carlisle United 8-0 on November 25, 1952.
Grimsby Town are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, but they maintain rivalries with local clubs Hull City, Doncaster Rovers, and Lincoln City as well. Jack Brownsword (1947-65) holds the record for most appearances in Scunthorpe United shirt (783).
