Tranmere vs Port Vale – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Tranmere have won seven of their last eight home games ahead of their clash with Port Vale in League Two. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Tranmere to Win
Two defeats on the spin have dented Tranmere’s automatic promotion hopes, though it is worth noting that both losses were suffered on the road and Rovers are much more reliable at Prenton Park. Micky Mellon’s side have won seven of their last eight matches on Merseyside and their ability to carve out results on their own patch means they are worth backing against Port Vale.
Under 2.5 Goals
Tranmere have been a staple among lower league bettors this season in the unders market and a glance at their record shows why they have been so popular. 78% of their League Two assignments this term have produced under 2.5 goals, including seven of their last nine tests in the division. Rovers drew 0-0 with Port Vale in Staffordshire last year and another low-scoring contest is on the cards in Saturday’s rematch.
Both Teams to Score – No
Tranmere have been superb defensively this season, conceding a league-best 22 goals so far. At Prenton Park, Rovers have kept six clean sheets in their last seven tussles, with runaway leaders Forest Green the only side to breach their mean backline. Both teams not to score landed when Rovers and Port Vale went head-to-head in August and with Tranmere’s rearguard reliably rock-solid, the same market appeals this weekend.
Tranmere vs Port Vale Match Preview: Rovers hoping to steady the ship
Disappointing back-to-back defeats on the road to Walsall and Hartlepool destroyed any remaining shred of doubt about the destination of the League Two title this term, though second-placed Rovers are suddenly looking over their shoulders at the teams behind them. Mickey Mellon’s charges are just two points ahead of Exeter, though the Grecians have two games in hand and a return to form for Tranmere is a must.
Port Vale are unbeaten in five fixtures in League Two, though a smattering of three draws during that run means their points haul wasn’t as impressive as it might have been. The Valiants simply haven’t been scoring often enough and they have notched one or fewer goals in seven of their last eight League Two matches.
