Recent respective form guides

Tranmere Rovers's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. Only 3 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 in the wrong end.

Exeter City's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Grecians's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Tranmere Rovers find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 50 points from their 43 matches.

Exeter City's 64 points from 43 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
