📝 Match Preview: Tranmere Rovers (A)

Match preview ahead of City's trip to Birkenhead this weekend

19 March 2021

Exeter City will be hoping to return to winning ways when they face promotion chasing Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Saturday.

After a narrow 1-0 defeat to Cheltenham at SJP last weekend, City enjoyed a rare luxury of a midweek without a match and go into the game eager to make amends. The Grecians have won three of their last five matches on the road, but face a Tranmere side who have been strong on home turf - Forest Green, Bolton and Newport just three of the sides who have been beaten at Prenton Park in recent months.

Keith Hill's side come into the game two league matches unbeaten having drawn 0-0 at Grimsby on Wednesday evening - that coming after they beat Newport County 1-0 two weeks ago. They were losing finalist at Wembley last Sunday when they lost 1-0 to Sunderland in the Papa John's Trophy.
