Tranmere to Win
Both Tranmere and Salford have been performing below expectations this season, though Rovers could still have the edge over their opponents on Saturday. Rovers have been doing most of their best work at Prenton Park, where they have won three of their last four matches, while The Ammies have lost 100% of their away games in the league so far. With Salford’s poor form on the road a determining factor, we’re tipping Tranmere to squeeze three points out of Saturday’s contest.
Under 2.5 Goals
Remarkably, Tranmere have scored only two goals in seven League Two tussles this term – a haul that makes them the lowest scoring outfit in the entire division. Defensively, they remain strong however, and as a result under 2.5 goals have been scored in six of their seven league fixtures. That same combination should ensure that we witness another chess-like battle at Prenton Park on Saturday and that in turn makes the under 2.5 line an appealing choice again.
Under 1.5 Salford Goals
After seven games of the season, Morecambe are the only club in League Two to find the net more than once against Tranmere and Rovers’ notoriously well-drilled defence should be tough for Salford to penetrate on Saturday. The Ammies have only scored two goals in three away fixtures this term and they look an interesting price in the under 1.5 team goals market against Tranmere’s rock-solid rearguard.

Tranmere Team News
Last season's first-choice keeper Scott Davies remains sidelined for Tranmere, though 40-year-old Irish veteran Joe Murphy has been an able deputy so far. Rovers thumped Leeds U21's 4-1 in the EFL Trophy in midweek in a game where Nicky Maynard and Samuel Foley gave manager Micky Mellon something to think about by netting twice each.
Salford Team News
Defender Ash Eastham is Salford’s only major injury worry ahead of Saturday’s fixture, though the 30-year-old will hope to be available. City have been blowing hot and cold this season, though their 1-0 win over a fancied Bradford team last time out showed that they can still produce the goods in big games on occasion.
