Exeter Double Chance
Forest Green roared out of the blocks with five straight wins in all competitions, though Rovers have hit their first bump of the season when they were beaten 3-1 at Brentford in the Carabao Cup – a loss that triggered a run of three straight defeats. With their confidence wobbled, they could be worth opposing against an Exeter team that collected four points from two tough opening games at St. James’ Park (0-0 vs Bradford, 4-1 vs Bristol Rovers) and The Grecians look a compelling price in the double chance market on Saturday.
Both Teams to Score
With new manager Rob Edwards’ favouring an attacking approach, four of Forest Green’s first five League Two assignments of the campaign produced goals at both ends, and we anticipated more action when Rovers visit Exeter. BTTS landed in each of City’s last three fixtures and their style of play coupled with Forest Greens’ new philosophy should make Saturday’s game an entertaining affair.
Over 2.5 Goals
Our third tip draws from the same logic and we’re banking on over 2.5 goals to be scored at St. James’ Park. Rob Edwards’ tactical blueprint has transformed Forest Green into one of League Two’s most entertaining teams and four of their first five matches in the division have delivered over 2.5 goals as a result. Expect similar levels of excitement when Rovers take on a strong Exeter team.
Exeter vs Forest Green: Match Preview
Exeter have blown hot and cold in the early weeks of the season, though they were on song in their last match at St. James’ Park when they hammered Bristol Rovers 4-1. A hard-fought draw, achieved with ten men, followed at Harrogate and the manner in which they rescued that point will have galvanised their confidence ahead of another tough test on Saturday.
Forest Green had been playing like potential League Two champions in the campaign’s opening exchanges, though things have turned a little sour more recently. A 3-1 Carabao Cup loss at Brentford seemed to knock the stuffing out of Rovers and their 2-0 reverse at home to Port Vale in their last League Two contest was a proper coupon buster.
