Tranmere vs Forest Green – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
League leaders Forest Green face a tough test when they travel to take on second-placed Tranmere on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Second meets first in League Two this weekend when Tranmere host Forest Green at Prenton Park and we’re tipping the division’s strongest outfits to cancel each other out on Merseyside. Rovers are unbeaten in ten games ahead of Saturday’s game, while Forest Green haven’t tasted defeat in 14 assignments in the fourth tier. The teams drew 0-0 in the reverse fixture back in September and a similar outcome would be seen as a decent day’s work for both clubs in this weekend’s rematch.
Under 2.5 Goals
League Two’s meanest pair of defences go head-to-head when Tranmere and Forest Green lock horns on Saturday and we expect chances to be few are far between in this top of the table clash. Under 2.5 goals has landed in seven of Tranmere’s last eight matches, while the net didn’t ripple even once when Rovers and Forest Green played out a chess-like battle back in September. We expect a similarly tense contest to ensue on Saturday, so stick to the under 2.5 goals line.
Correct Score: 0-0 Draw
We’ve gone for a meatier price for our final prediction and we’re tipping Tranmere and Forest Green to remain deadlocked at 0-0 throughout Saturday’s game. That was the final scoreline when these well-matched outfits went toe-to-toe four months ago and it’s also worth noting that Tranmere didn’t concede a single goal in any of their last four home games. Indeed, Rovers have shipped just six times in 13 home fixtures overall this term and their watertight defence should come to the fore again this weekend.
Tranmere vs Forest Green Match Preview: Top two clash on Merseyside
Saturday’s fixture could be Tranmere’s last opportunity to turn the title race from a procession into a genuine battle. Rovers are seven points behind current leaders Forest Green ahead of the team’s encounter this weekend, even though the hosts have won seven of their last eight matches in the division. Manager Micky Mellon will be determined to strike a decisive blow, though Rovers will have to be at their very best to prevail.
Forest Green thumped Carlisle 3-0 last week with star strikers Jamille Matt and Matthew Stevens getting their customary goals. The team’s forward duo occupy two of the top three positions in the goalscoring charts in League Two and their performance have allowed Forest Green to put together a stunning 14-match unbeaten run that included nine victories. Another win this weekend would all but sew up the title for Rob Edwards’ side.
