            Wrexham vs Tranmere Prediction, Tips & Stats

            This weekend, the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham prepares for a pulsating League Two encounter – a local derby brimming with contrasting narratives. Wrexham, soaring in second place face Tranmere Rovers, a team currently residing in mid-table obscurity.

            While the league table suggests a comfortable home win for the Red Dragons, the added spice of a historic rivalry and Wrexham's relentless pursuit of promotion ensures a potentially unpredictable encounter.

            The hosts come into this weekend’s game on the back of a decent run of form which has seen them go four games in the league without loss. This run has included impressive victories over Morecambe and Accrington Stanley.

            Wrexham were held to a frustrating draw when they faced Harrogate on Tuesday evening. Despite having more shots, shots on goal and possession than their opponents, Wrexham were unable to find the back of the Harrogate net.

            Tranmere are currently sitting in 16th position in the League Two table after they have gained 47 points from their 38 league games so far this season. Rovers look designed to spend another year in League Two as they are currently 15 points above the relegation zone and 10 points behind the playoff places.

            Nigel Adkins’s side come into this weekend following a good run of games which has seen them go three games in a row without defeat.

            Last time out, Tranmere beat the league leaders in a highly impressive display. Goals from Regan Hendry and Rob Apter provided Tranmere with arguably their best win this season.

            The fixture of Wrexham vs Tranmere has a long and storied history Their first encounter dates all the way back to 1922, when they battled to a scoreless draw in the league.

            Since then, these two Welsh and English border rivals have met an impressive 105 times across various competitions. Wrexham hold a slight edge in the head-to-head record, boasting 41 victories compared to Tranmere's 39.

            Despite the rich history of this fixture, the reverse fixture was the first time that the two sides had met each other since 2005. Aaron Hayden headed Wrexham to a thoroughly deserved derby-day victory at Prenton Park. In a match in which Wrexham dominated, it was Hayden's second-half header - his first goal of the season - that made the difference.

            Unsurprisingly, considering the respective league position of these two sides, it is Wrexham who come into the game as home favourites and are currently priced @ ½, whilst an away win for Tranmere is priced @ 19/4 and a draw is @ 16/5.

            We are backing Wrexham to win and both teams to score because both sides have shown good goalscoring form in recent weeks. Wrexham are the second highest scorers in the league, having netted 67 goals in their 37 league games this season. Tranmere have scored in all of their last four league games and we expect them to find a goal this weekend.

            Wrexham Team News

            Wrexham have not reported any new injuries ahead of this weekend. Phil Parkinson is likely to make wholesale changes to the side that failed to score against Harrogate during the week.

            Tranmere Team News

            Jake Leake remains Tranmere’s only long-term injury, but Nigel Adkins is hoping to have him back within the next fortnight. Tom Davies has missed Rovers’ last two games but trained on Thursday and will be assessed ahead of the weekend.
