Tranmere Rovers vs Bury Match Preview
Bury’s promotion straight back to League One may have been delayed by only three days as they are fancied to win at Tranmere and join champions Lincoln in going up.
The Shakers need only one victory from their final two matches to be sure of finishing second in the League Two table, with their other bite of the cherry being at home to 20th-placed Port Vale on Saturday.
Ryan Lowe’s side would have been hoping to celebrate last weekend but were denied that chance by the weather as Storm Hannah descended on the Wirral and ensured the Prenton Park pitch was waterlogged.
Results went Bury’s way because MK Dons and Forest Green both lost, opening the door for the Lancashire club to clinch promotion by beating a Tranmere side who were also done a favour by those results – they could yet go up automatically themselves.
However, the equation is rather more complicated for Rovers because they need to win their last two matches and hope neither Mansfield nor MK Dons triumphs on Saturday.
Micky Mellon’s men are safely in the play-off zone, however, and that is where we expect them to stay because Bury, who moved to the brink of promotion with a 3-1 home win over Northampton on Easter Monday, are backed to complete the job by claiming three points.
