English League 1
Sunderland

Head to head

Tranmere host Sunderland on Wednesday evening at Prenton Park with the hosts fighting to avoid relegation and the visitors battling for promotion back to the Championship. Read the Tranmere v Sunderland match preview and predictions below.

Tranmere come into this game having suffered a 6-0 thrashing at home against Premier League giants Manchester United in the FA Cup. The avoidance of a cup run will probably be best for Micky Mellon’s side given that they are 3 points into the relegation zone and winless in their last 5 league games. Facing Man Utd may have been a dream come true for some of the players, especially after beating another Premier League side Watford, in the last round, but playing 3 competitive matches in 7 days will do nothing for their fitness going into Wednesday’s game. The hosts have struggled at both home and away of late and although they regularly manage to get on the scoresheet, they have been leaking goals at the back.

After a poor end to 2019, Sunderland have managed to find a bit of form. They’re unbeaten in the league in their last 8 matches which has helped them climb up to 6th sport, giving them hope of a play-off spot, if not automatic promotion. Phil Parkinson’s side have picked up 27 points from a possible 42 at home this season but have struggled on their travels having collected just 15 from 36. However, they have the 4th best defensive record away from home in the league and so will be confident of taking away all three points on Wednesday should they be able to find the net.

Tranmere v Sunderland Prediction

An away win is the obvious choice here with Sunderland being in much better form than the hosts. Their away record is a slight worry but they are unbeaten in their last three away having beaten MK Dons and Doncaster and picking up a point against Fleetwood. As well as an away win, we’re backing both teams to get on the scoresheet which has happened in almost 70% of Tranmere’s home games so far this season.
