Tranmere Rovers vs Rochdale Prediction

Looking to return to League One two seasons after being relegated, Tranmere Rovers will continue the 2021/22 campaign well in the mix for automatic promotion. A victory over Rochdale this weekend will consolidate the hosts’ position in the top three, whilst defeat could see them drop out all together.

Whilst most of the sides below them have the luxury of a game in hand, Tranmere boasts the benefit of points on the board, and will begin the weekend flying high in second. With Forest Green Rovers all but confirmed as champions-elect, two automatic spaces remain in League Two, with Rovers amongst a select group of sides battling it out.

Going strong in the league, Tranmere have lost none of their previous eight outings, with their last defeat coming against fellow-challengers Sutton United in mid-November. Expected to extend that record this weekend, Rovers will welcome a Rochdale side struggling for form in League Two. One win from their previous seven league outings has left the Greater Manchester club languishing in the wrong half of the table.

Despite their troubles this season, Rochdale have enjoyed some luck on the road and will travel to the Wirral having lost only twice in their last seven trips. Granted, those two defeats did come during the previous two Rovers’ away games, with a defeat on Saturday set to equal Rochdale’s worst losing streak away from home this season.

However, history suggests that run could be coming to an end, given Rochdale’s impressive record over Rovers. Winners in three of the last six meetings between the pair, the Greater Manchester outfit have enjoyed the upper hand in this clash and could achieve their first league double over Tranmere this century, having won the pairs’ earlier clash 1-0. For Rovers, it’s 10 years since their last victory over Rochdale – ominous signs for boss Micky Mellon.

Despite their shaky record, Tranmere should enjoy a comfortable win.

Tranmere Rovers Team News

Tranmere’s build-up to the Rochdale clash has been somewhat disrupted with the late departure of Ryan Watson, who has joined Salford City. Watson featured 21 times for Rovers this season, with the midfielder netting one goal.

There have been arrivals for Rovers, with Kane Hemmings joining the club from League One side Burton Albion. It adds goals to a Tranmere front line looking to fire their side to promotion, with Hemmings likely to make his debut on Saturday.

Rochdale Team News

Similarly busy in the window, Rochdale have welcomed the signing of Paul Downing on a short-term loan from League One Portsmouth. Likely to slot seamlessly into Rochdale’s back-three system, Downing provides plenty of experience, including over 300 Football League appearances.

At the opposite end, Jake Beesley will be keen to continue his strong form in front of goal, having netted twice in the recent win over Newport County. He will be supplied by a midfield partnership of Stephen Dooley and Liam Kelly, who can also provide goals from deep.
