Tip Reasoning

Typically, when a side wins promotion from the National League they ride the wave of euphoria through the first few months of the next season and then start to slow down a bit as they settle at their new level. Tranmere Rovers started the season like a house on fire but their form has dipped of late and they go into this Tuesday’s match with Northampton having suffered defeat in each of their previous two outings.

Tranmere Rovers trip to Port Vale at the weekend was one of the fixtures which fell victim to the sub-zero temperatures at the weekend and Rovers fans will be hoping that the extended rest period will play into their hands as they try to return to the sort of form they displayed in the early months of the campaign. However, Tranmere have been pretty solid on home soil and they will be hoping that they can once again draw on their strong home support to get them over the line.

If Rovers are going to return to form then their talisman up front will surely play a key role. James Norwood has had an exceptional season so far with 18 goals to his name, and with two goals in his last three outings, he looks like he is a good bet to score anytime against Northampton on Tuesday evening.

Making the trip to face off against Tranmere is a Northampton side who are also short of form at the moment. The visitors have managed to earn the three points just once in their last 10 matches. The visitors have also struggled on their travels with just four wins on the road this term and they face an uphill battle if that record is to improve following this match.

With neither side in particularly good form at the moment, you would be forgiven for avoiding the win-draw-win market. However, given that the hosts are pretty strong at home and Northampton have had plenty of troubles on the road this season, we think that backing Tranmere to end their recent dip in form with a win is the best way to get a decent return in this fixture.
