Swindon to Win
The Robins lost their most recent League Two outing against Carlisle United but it is difficult to punt against them in this fixture. Tranmere Rovers were awful in their last two competitive engagements, getting knocked out of the EFL Cup in the process. But more importantly, the visitors have not won against in ten outings, winning nine.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
If Swindon's two league meetings are any gauge, this fixture should at least provide three goals in the highlight reel. The last three meetings between these two sides have also finished with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. However, we expect the contrary to result in their coming together. Both sides have only scored two goals in their last two competitive outings and will approach this fixture with caution given their need for points.
Both Teams to Score: No
Both teams have scored in each of Swindon's two league outings. The opposite stands true for Tranmere, who won their first fixture 1-0 and then drew a blank in the 0-0 stalemate with Port Vale on the road. With the Rovers scoring at an average of 0.83 goals per match in their last six outings, it is difficult to rely on them for scoring.
Swindon vs Tranmere: Team News and Match Preview
All the action in Swindon Town's 1-2 defeat to Carlisle United took place in the first half. They did well to equalize after Joe Riley had put them behind in the 13th minute. Romoney Crichlow was their saviour at the half-hour mark but would succumb to Tristan Abrahams's 43rd-minute strike. Ben Garner would not have been pleased with his defence conceding at crucial moments of the game and would have put them through extra paces as they showed a lack of match fitness.
While Ben Garner looks to calibrate his defence, Micky Mellon will not have any qualms with Tranmere Rovers defence. The Rovers have kept two clean sheets, although the most last of which would have concerned him. His charges could only manage a 0-0 draw with Port Vale, baring their inability to score regularly. Callum McManaman has been the unlikely scorer of their only goal of the League Two campaign as the forward only managed four goals in his last season with Melbourne Victory.
