Draw

Scunthorpe have become League Two’s early draw specialists and The Iron have shared the spoils in each of their last three matches in the division. Tranmere meanwhile, are without a win in three attempts in the league and each of their last two tests on the road finished level. Scunthorpe and Rovers couldn’t be separated when they last met at the Sands Venue Stadium in April and current form suggests a similar outcome is likely this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

The new League Two campaign has been notably low on goals so far and both Scunthorpe and Tranmere have played their part in keeping the numbers down. Each of The Irons’ last three and 100% of Rovers’ four league assignments since the summer have produced under 2.5 goals and having drawn 0-0 in their last encounter, we’re tipping Scunthorpe and Tranmere to contest another low-key affair on Saturday.

Scunthorpe +1 Goal

Goal-shy Tranmere have failed to score in each of their last three League Two matches and their struggles in the final third could open up an opportunity for match handicap bettors this weekend. Scunthorpe managed to impact the scoresheet in three of their last four fixtures and they look an interesting prospect at +1 goal against Tranmere’s stuttering frontline.

Scunthorpe vs Tranmere: Match Preview

Scunthorpe

Scunthorpe are among the bookmakers’ favourites for the drop this season and they are one of only a handful of clubs in League Two still on the hunt for their first win of the campaign. With three draws on the spin, The Iron have shown plenty of determination under Neil Cox however and they should be hard to beat again this weekend.

Tranmere

Tranmere let their unbeaten record slip against Swindon last time out, though their first defeat of the season was always likely to be just around the corner considering their dreadful attacking output. Rovers have scored just one goal so far this term – a haul that makes them the joint-lowest outfit in the entire division alongside Port Vale.
