Tranmere vs Gillingham Match Preview
Tranmere picked up a useful point on the road at Rotherham last time out though the 1-1 draw stretched their winless run to two. Micky Mellon is the man in charge and having secured back-to-back promotions will be given time despite their slow start of four points and a 19th position.
At Prenton Park, Rovers lost 3-2 to Rochdale on the opening day of the season but went on to beat a young Bolton side 5-0. It means that this is a good ground to go for neutrals with ten goals netted already from just two league matches.
Gillingham hammered Bolton 5-0 in their last league fixture to pick up only their first victory of the 2019/20 campaign. Steve Evans is the man in charge and his side sit 16th in the table though expected goals data suggests they should be two points better off.
Away from Priestfield Stadium, the Gills drew at Doncaster on the opening day but suffered a defeat to Coventry on their last trip. If extended into last season then they have won just one of their last six and two of their last eight on the road.
Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair and it is easy to see why as both sides have shown similar form lines including a 5-0 defeat of Bolton for both. A better angle of attack is to look at the goalscorer markets as the last two at Prenton Park have produced a combined ten goals. For the hosts, Morgan Ferrier has two for the season in four starts and appeals here. For the visitors, Alex Jakubiak has netted three times already and goes off good value.
