Forest Green to Win
Forest Green tightened their grip on top spot in League Two with a superb 3-1 comeback win over Salford last weekend and Rob Edwards’ league leaders look ready to pounce for maximum points again when they visit Yorkshire to take on Bradford. The Bantams were turned over 3-1 at home by Hartlepool in their last assignment in a confidence-denting defeat that leaves them looking vulnerable ahead of their clash with the division’s most impressive outfit.
Both Teams to Score
Bradford did at least manage to notch a consolation in last week’s reverse to Hartlepool, indeed, City have scored in 100% of their home league games this term and they can maintain that strike rate against Forest Green. Rovers have claimed just one clean sheet in their last four fixtures, so a shutout at The Utilita Energy Stadium feels unlikely. The table-toppers have an abundance of firepower however, so back them to register for the fifth straight game on the road.
Over 1.5 Forest Green Team Goals
Bradford looked worryingly subpar in defence last week when they shipped three goals at home to Hartlepool and Forest Green have the cutting edge in attack to cause just as many problems for the Bantams on Saturday. Rovers are averaging a healthy 2.0 goals per 90 minutes on their travels in League Two this term and having hit the net at least twice in three of their last four away matches, we’re tipping them beat the over 1.5 team goal line again this weekend.

Bradford Team News
Liam Ridehalgh, Lee Angol, Sam Hornby and Abo Eisa are all in the treatment room for Bradford and that injury-stricken quartet is expected to be out again on Saturday. Bradford haven't quite lived up to their promotion favourites tag this season and their 3-1 reverse at home to Hartlepool last time out knocked them back to 11th place in the division.
Forest Green Team News
Dan Sweeney is Forest Green’s only injury concern ahead of Saturday’s game and manager Rob Edwards has a strong pool to pick from elsewhere. Rovers have yet to taste defeat on the road in League Two this season and their haul of five wins and two draws from seven away fixtures highlights just how threatening a side they can be on their travels.
