Tip Reasoning

  • Sutton have won 11 of their 18 home games, the third-best record in League Two.
  • Tranmere, despite sitting in fourth position in the table, have only won four of their 18 away league games.
  • The visitors average a poor 1.06 points per game on their travels this term, compared to 2.26 at home.

Gander Green clash could have huge say in promotion race

Another huge clash between League Two promotion hopefuls sees Sutton United host Tranmere Rovers on Saturday afternoon. The two teams, separated by just five points with eighth-placed Sutton possessing a game in hand on fourth-placed Rovers, are both contenders in an absorbing promotion battle, with just six points currently separating second from 10th as the run-in begins.

Neither side approach the contest in sparking form, however, with Sutton winning just two of their last nine matches (although they have also only lost three of their last 16, being hampered by seven draws in that time), and Tranmere winning their last two to end a five-game winless run. Sutton managed a 1-0 victory over the Merseyside outfit in November’s return fixture, and given their strong home record, one wonders whether a double could await.

Indeed, Sutton have claimed 37 points from their 18 home matches, winning 11 league games at Gander Green Lane to give them the division’s third-best home record. Meanwhile, Tranmere have only won four of their 18 games on the road, putting them 13th in the away league table.

Home advantage can make the difference for Sutton

In a season where home advantage has been a huge factor in the fourth tier, backing Sutton to strike a blow in the promotion race could make sense; Tranmere have taken 69% of their points on home turf this year, averaging a massive 2.26 points per game at home but just 1.06 per game on the road.

With Sutton joining Tranmere in making their home a fortress, we expect home advantage to tell on Saturday in a close-run affair. A 2-1 home triumph, meanwhile, could be a decent correct score prediction.
