Competition: League Two

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 2/3 @ 1xBet

Looking to force a routine into the play-off places this weekend, Crawley will travel to Prenton Park when they meet Tranmere on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Tranmere might have signed off February with back-to-back defeats against Swindon and Forest Green respectively, the Rovers have come roaring back. Last seen putting in a stellar performance as they clinched a 1-0 victory away at automatic promotion contenders Wrexham, Nigel Adkins’ men have come skyrocketing up the League Two standings. Making a statement on March 12th as they clinched a 2-1 win against Mansfield, the Merseyside-based outfit are enjoying their longest unbeaten run since opening the New Year. Desperate to clinch a top-half finish this season, the former Southampton boss will also be excited by his side’s recent purple patch on home soil. Including a stellar 4-0 romp against Stockport on February 17th, Tranmere have won all of their last three showdowns at Prenton Park by an aggregate sofa of 7-1. However, it should be highlighted, Adkins’ men have seen seven of their previous 10 home fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Crawley might have find themselves at the heart of a League Two relegation scrap this season, Scott Lindsey’s men are enjoying a hugely impressive campaign this time around. Last seen earlier in the week playing out a 1-1 stalemate against leading promotion contenders Stockport, the Red Devils should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Skyrocketing their way up the fourth-tier standings and receiving plenty of plaudits, the Sussex-based outfit have lost just one of their previous eight appearances. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the play-off places, Crawley will also be excited by their most recent showdown against Tranmere. Claiming an action-packed 3-2 win when they welcomed Saturday’s hosts to the Broadfield Stadium for their reverse meeting on September 16th, we could be treated to another enjoyable affair here. With Crawley seeing all of their previous three outings finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome.

Bet: Both teams to score at Tranmere vs Crawley 2/3 for Saturday’s League Two matchup @ 1xBet
