Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Two of the recent three H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Salford City have found the back of the net in four of the recent five matches while keeping just one clean sheet. On the other hand, Stockport have rattled the net in each of their last five games away from Edgeley Park. However, the Hatters have been unable to restrict their rivals from scoring in any of them. In light of the current scenario, we expect the teams to contribute to a BTTS outcome.
Correct score prediction: 2-2 Draw
Stockport County have rattled the net more than once in four of their previous five matches away from Edgeley Park. The Hatters will also be confident over the poor Salford’s defence. The Ammies have conceded multiple goals in four of their last five games at Peninsula Stadium. However, Saldorf City have also rattled the net two or more times in each of their last three games in front of their home fans. Therefore, we believe we to see the teams sharing a 2-2 scoreline in this encounter.
