Tip Reasoning

  • Tranmere have won eight of their last ten League Two home games and kept clean sheets in six of them.
  • Rochdale have lost their last two League Two away games, going down 4-2 at Bristol Rovers last time out.
  • Rochdale could be a little rusty as they play their first game in almost a month.

Tranmere can restrict rusty Rochdale

Rochdale are set to play their first competitive fixture in almost a month when they travel to Prenton Park to take on high-flying Tranmere this Saturday.

As far as restart fixtures go, this could hardly be much tougher for Robbie Stockdale’s men as Tranmere boast the best home form in the division.Micky Mellon’s men sit second in the table on 42 points, 27 of which have been garnered from a possible 36 at Prenton Park. They thrashed Scunthorpe 4-0 last weekend and have played four times since Rochdale were last in action.

Rovers’ rearguard is churning out clean sheets

That should be a significant factor in this match finishing in a comfortable win for the hosts as many of the Dale players who have recovered from COVID are not match fit and some others are still being assessed.

Tranmere weren’t scoring that many goals for the first few months of the season but their goals-per-game output has risen from 0.83 to 1.04 since the start of December. Backing them to cover a -1 handicap appear a little risky in the circumstances, even if Rochdale concede an average of 1.45 goals per game on their travels and have shipped six in their last two away trips.

But Tranmere’s clean sheet rate of 54% is unrivalled in the division and it’s hard to foresee a rusty Rochdale attack getting much joy on Saturday, hence the win to nil recommendation as we also advise a 1-0 correct score bet.
