Reason For Aldershot VS Tranmere Betting Tips
After slugging it out for 46 games in the regular league campaign, the fifth best team in the National League play host to the team which finished second for a place in a Wembley play-off final.

For our correct score tip we can see quite a cautious approach being adopted by both these sides and we are backing them to play out a 1-1 draw, which is priced at 11/2 with the same site.
Aldershot Town finished the season in impressive fashion with three wins in a row and nine games undefeated in the league. They also boasted one of the best home records in the National League, with just three defeats at the Recreation Ground all season and a points tally that on home soil was only bettered by first and second in the division.
The one thing that stands out for the Shots is their impressive defensive record, they have conceded just 37 times in 46 games in the league this season and finished with an impressive 65% of their home games with a clean sheet. With such an impressive rear guard it will be of little surprise that just 39% of their home games finished with over 2.5 goals being scored and the average amount of goals seen at the Recreation Ground this season stands at a meager 2.22 goals per game.
Like their hosts, Tranmere go into this match in pretty good shape, having won nine of their previous 11 in the league. Rovers will class themselves as unlucky not to chase down league winners Lincoln City, after finishing the season with an impressive tally of 95 points from their 46 games.
The similarities with Aldershot don’t stop there either as Tranmere have built much of their success on the back of a solid defence and their record of just 39 goals conceded is only bettered by their hosts. Thanks to a stronger attack, Rovers have seen a few more goals scored in their games but with the side managing to keep a clean sheet in 52% of their away games this term it has meant that only 48% of their matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals being scored.
