After failing to defeat Stevenage last year on the 24th of November due to a stoppage-time equaliser sent by Greg Tansey right in the 90+2nd minute of the match, League One leaders Tranmere are hungered to achieve a victory against their rivals this Sunday, on the 24th of March.
Gary Smith, the manager of Stevenage, did his best to dissimulate his pride and remain objective in his statements: “As a spectacle it must have been quite exciting. The conditions made it a quick game and both teams showed energy. There weren’t many opportunities. It wasn’t really until the final stages – when I thought both teams were tired – that it started to open up.”
As for the attitude, both teams will start this match a bit wrinkled and disappointed after several defeats. On one hand, Stevenage will come after a 2-0 loss suffered in front of Bury Football Club and on the other hand, Tranmere had to deal with a 3-0 defeat from the match with the football team Milton Keynes Dons.
This time I am going to place my bet on Tranmere, since I believe their overall results were better than Stevenage’s, even if they aren’t crossing their best period either. I bet 5 units at 1.90, with odds from Bwin.
