Rochdale are absolutely flying at present and their run of four wins from five games in all competitions was complemented by a glut of goals. The Dale notched seven times in their last two matches alone and their on-song forward line could fire them to victory again against a Tranmere outfit that look short on match-winners.
Under 1.5 Tranmere Team Goals
Despite their position in midtable, Tranmere have been woefully blunt in the final third this season, indeed, Rovers are the lowest-scoring team in the entire division with just two goals from six games. Tranmere have yet to register a single effort on the road in League Two since the summer and that dismal record means they are an excellent option in the under 1.5 team goals market on Saturday.
Jake Beesley to Score Anytime
With three goals in his last four appearances in all competitions, Jake Beesley is in decent early-season form and the 24-year-old looked full of confidence when he hit the net twice last weekend at Port Vale. That surging self-belief is worth backing this weekend and Beesley looks an excellent price to continue his purple patch against Tranmere.
Rochdale vs Tranmere: Match Preview
Tipped as one of the favourites for the drop before a ball was kicked, Rochdale are defying expectations in League Two so far and The Dale could join the division’s front-runners if results are favourable this weekend. Defender Sam Graham is manager Robbie Stockdale’s only major injury concern ahead of Saturday’s clash. Returning keeper Jay Lynch was fit enough to make the bench at Port Vale last week.
Micky Mellon’s charges remain the lowest scorers in the entire division this season, though they managed to double their tally for the campaign last time out when they forced a late win over Hartlepool at Prenton Park. Defender Tom Davies hit the game’s crucial strike in the 89th minute, though Rovers haven’t got a single goal from any of the attackers in their ranks this term.
