Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere Rovers will be looking to bounce back from a 5-0 loss to Exeter when they host Stevenage at their Prenton Park. The Super Whites have been having their ups and downs in the new League Two season, and, as a result, they sit in the middle of the table ahead of the visit of Stevenage. Boss Keith Hill is likely to make changes to the starting XI that faced Exeter at the weekend, with all Lewis, Ferrier, Ridehalgh, and Banks pushing for a start.
The Boro, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Carlisle as well. Since both sides have been struggling in front of goal of late, we believe that punters can find value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Keep in mind, though, that Stevenage defender Luke Prosser is sidelined through suspension.
Highlighted Player (Jay Spearing):
After impressing in Liverpool’s youth academy, Jay Spearing made 30 appearances in the league for the first team. However, the English midfielder was playing below expectations in the Premier League and, as a result, he was sent on loan to Leicester City in 2010.
Spearing played for Bolton Wanderers on loan as well and in 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Trotters. He scored three goals, while providing six assists for his teammates in 37 appearances for Bolton in the 2016/2017 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship.
Jay Spearing, who was born in Wallasey, England on November 25, 1988, has yet to make his England debut. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and left midfielder as well. Jay Spearing has a deal with Bolton Wanderers which expires in the summer of 2021.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
