  • Rovers have lost just one of their last eight home league games on a Friday

Friday night football returns to Prenton Park

In the 1980s and 1990s, Friday night football was a specialty at Prenton Park and Tranmere used to thrive upon it. Although games are more rare of late, their record remains good, losing just one of the last eight.

Micky Mellon’s side need to harness some of that spirit of yesteryear as they look to end a five game winless run that has seen them drop out of the top three, with defending in the second half a clear problem.

In their last eight games, they have conceded 11 times, eight of which have come after the break, as have eight of their ten goals.

Mansfield on a stunning run

Mansfield have surged above Tranmere and into fifth place in League Two courtesy of a 14 game unbeaten run, but they have only won four of their 14 away games.

Again, their matches appear to have more action after the break, with three of their last five seeing fewer goals in the first half compared to the second.

Nine of the last 14 they have scored on their travels have come following the interval, with Nigel Clough another manager who likes to try and keep things tight for the opening 45 minutes.

Despite Mansfield’s form, this will be a tight game as Tranmere seem to find another level on Friday nights. I predict more goals will come after half-time, selecting 1-1 as a correct score prediction.
