With the nervous opening game out of the way it’s time for the second League Two game of the season. Tranmere Rovers look forward to welcoming Cheltenham Town in front of their home support.

There has not been much time to rest for the guests, as they played a Carabao Cup game only four days ago. That game was also an away game, at Millwall. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.

Tranmere Rovers form and stats

With seven home League Two games in a row without a win, the Tranmere Rovers fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the AFC Wimbledon game long ago, can be stopped today.

Tranmere are confident in defense, having played 258 minutes without conceding a goal in the league.

Tranmere Rovers manager M. Jackson and his team return home after a 0-0 draw away versus Mansfield Town (placed 16th) in the League Two. A 0-0 draw away in the EFL Trophy before that, with Port Vale (after extra-time, 4-3 on penalties) the opponent.

This is expected to be a close game, with Tranmere Rovers perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Tranmere as a small favourite), we find twelve games. Tranmere Rovers has won five of these, drawn three and lost four.

Last season, Tranmere Rovers's league statistics were 8 wins, 8 draws and 18 losses, resulting in a 21st position in the League One. Over these 34 matches they scored 36 goals and conceded 60. Playing at home last season Tranmere Rovers managed 3-6-8 (win-draw-lost) with 19 goals and 26 conceded.
