Recent respective form guides

Tranmere Rovers's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Rovers have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Brighton & HA's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. The Seagulls's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Tranmere Rvs. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League One, picking up 3 points from their 2 games so far. Brighton & HA lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League One, picking up 3 from their 2 games so far.
