Tranmere and Lincoln get League One action back underway this evening, hosting Southend and Shrewsbury respectively.

Is there any evidence that matches on Friday nights see more home wins? It always seems like home teams do better under the floodlights on Friday evenings relative to Saturdays, but there’s no evidence, historically for this. Of theĀ 35915 English football matches on Fridays, 47% are won by the home team, but of theĀ 326768 Saturday matches, 48% are won by the home team.

Nonetheless, Tranmere are strong favourites against hapless Southend, while Lincoln and Shrewsbury ought to be a little closer.
