Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Tranmere Rovers v Cambridge United - along with the latest match odds.
Tranmere Rovers will be hoping to bounce back here after a 4-0 League Two loss in their previous game against Cheltenham Town.
Conor Thomas (4'), William Boyle (14'), Alfie May (42') and Callum Wright (57') scored for Cheltenham Town.
It has not been often in recent times where Tranmere Rovers have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Super White Army have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 9 goals along the way. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, however.
Taking a look at their past results, Tranmere Rovers:
- are unbeaten in the league by Cambridge United in their previous 5 games.
- haven't won against Cambridge United in their previous 2 league games.
- are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Cambridge United will go into the game following on from a 2-1 League Two win with the defeat of Morecambe in their most recent game.
The only player to score from Cambridge United was Paul Mullin (18', 81'). Freddie Price (88') was the scorer for Morecambe.
In their last six clashes, Cambridge United have bagged the sum of 11 goals. The U's have also scored on each one of those occasions. During those fixtures, they’ve seen 6 goals go into their own net.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Cambridge United:
- have not won against Tranmere Rovers in games played away from home for the previous 4 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
- are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: Tranmere Rovers
Tranmere Rovers boss Keith Hill doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this clash thanks to a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Cambridge United
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the Cambridge United manager Mark Bonner to be concerned with. Leon Davies (Hip Injury) won’t be playing here.
Our feeling is that Cambridge United have the firepower to find the back of the net against this Tranmere Rovers side, although it might not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our selection here is for a very close game with a 2-1 victory for Tranmere Rovers at the end of this one. Let’s just see how this one goes.
