Tip Reasoning

  • Tranmere have won four of their last five home games against Barrow.
  • There have been fewer than three goals in all of Barrow’s previous eight matches.
  • There have been fewer than three goals in four of the last five meetings between these two sides.

Watertight Tranmere

The hosts come into this one sitting in fifth and in contention for a spot in the play-offs. It’s predominantly due to their exceptional backline. They possess the best defence in the league as they’ve conceded just 14 goals so far this season – an average of just 0.66 goals per game. That also transfers to their home games where they’ve conceded just six goals in the ten games played at Prenton Park. Whilst their defence is rightly lauded, only four teams have scored fewer goals than them and finding the back of the net has been a difficult task.

Barrow have found goals hard to come by on the road, they’re scoring an average of just 0.90 goals per game away from home this campaign. This lack of goalscoring form has contributed to them winning just twice in their last 10 away matches and losing five of them. With the visitors sitting just six points off the relegation zone, alarm bells must be ringing and results are in desperate need of improvement.

Tight game anticipated

Both teams struggle to score goals but Barrow are coming up against the best defence in the division. With each side struggling to take the few chances they create, we’re expecting a cagey game with few goals being scored. We think one goal will be enough to claim three points here and it’s likely that Tranmere Rovers will find it.
