The Football League Trophy will see League Two challengers Tranmere taking on Bolton Wanderers from League One on Tuesday. This is the first game in the EFL-based competition in which the home side will be competing, whereas Bolton have already recorded a 4-1 thumping win over Crewe Alexandra on the first matchday. Tranmere broke their unfortunate two-game losing streak as they were victorious against Salford City away from home in a marginal 1-0 win. On the other hand, Bolton kept their reputation strong with a 4th consecutive win in a row, beating Peterborough United by a goal to nil in their own backyard. Bolton are clear favourites here, but an away trip has always proved unpredictable for any English side in this competition.

Tranmere Rovers vs Bolton Wanderers Betting Tips

Despite Bolton's promotional campaign, Tranmere were able to complete a league double over their counterparts a couple of years ago. Not only this, but the hosts have managed to score in 4 of their last 5 meetings against Bolton too. Even if Bolton have moved on to become a much better side which lost to Tranmere last in 2021, they are highly likely to concede at least one goal on Tuesday. This has become a psychologically tough draw for the away side, looking at their past clashes with Tranmere. Nevertheless, BTTS seems the way to go in this game as Tranmere will not bow out without a bang. Our final prediction is a 2-1 Bolton win, but with the game staying 1-1 for the majority of the ninety minutes.

Tranmere Rovers Team News

Full-back Ethan Bristow is undoubtedly Tranmere's go-to player at the moment. He has been an all-rounder in a camp where everyone has got their specific individual strengths. Bristow has contributed to one goal this season, making 2.9 successful tackles per game and averaging 1 key pass every 90 minutes. Forward Kane Hemmings, with his 4 goal contributions already, will be Bolton's major incoming threat in this League Trophy tie. On the other hand, defender Luke Robinson will have a busy second half if he is to make an appearance from the bench. The most active defender on the field, Robinson makes an average of 2.5 interceptions per 90 minutes, which is incredible. Bristow, Hemmings and Robinson will be our three players to watch on Tuesday.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Coincidentally, Bolton's best player is one of their back-line members too - Conor Bradley. Bradley has already racked up 4 goals and assists despite being a member of the defensive setup. Not only that, but Bradley also makes 1.8 key passes every game for his teammates to create goalscoring opportunities. It's even strange that Bradley again takes up the first spot from a defensive point of view. The impressive young defender has made an average of 1.9 interceptions every 90 minutes, which is the joint-best record in the team, alongside midfielder Jordan Williams. Conor Bradley is the whole and soul of this Bolton Wanderers squad.
