Hartlepool Double Chance
Tranmere have been woefully low on cutting edge in the final third of late, failing to score for four straight fixtures and Hartlepool could take advantage of their host’s profligacy on Saturday. Pools – who scored at least twice in each of their last four matches – have the firepower to take something from the game against their goal-shy opponents and we recommend backing them in the double chance market.
Under 2.5 Goals
Tranmere supporters haven’t had much to shout about in recent weeks and alongside some poor results, excitement levels in their games have been low. Just two goals hit the net in their last four League Two contests combined and unsurprisingly each of those fixtures produced under 2.5 goals. We expect that pattern to continue at Prenton Park on Saturday, so stick to the same goal line.
Half Time Result: Draw
With Tranmere’s goal-scoring problems a factor, each of their first two home games of the new campaign were deadlocked at half time. Rovers’ clash with Hartlepool could unfold in a similar fashion and it’s worth noting that Pools’ only away assignment in the league so far was also all square at the interval.
Tranmere vs Hartlepool: Match Preview
Tranmere’s loss at Scunthorpe last time out was their second defeat to nil on the spin following their blank against Newport and Rovers have now failed to find the net for 360 minutes in League Two. In fact, Micky Mellon’s charges are the lowest scorers in the entire division so far, hitting just one goal in their first five matches combined.
After successive home wins over Walsall and Carlisle, newly-promoted Hartlepool go on the hunt for their first away points of the season on Saturday and Pools are playing with enough attacking swagger to suggest they can trouble Tranmere. Only three clubs have notched more often than Dave Challinor’s side so far and their commitment to attacking football has been refreshing.
