Forest Green vs Newport – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Forest Green are targeting their seventh win in eight games at the Fully Charged New Lawn when Newport visit on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Forest Green to Win

Two of the division’s top three meet at the Fully Charged New Lawn on Saturday when table-topping Forest Green host third-placed Newport, though we recommend siding with the hosts in Gloucestershire. Rovers hammed second-placed Tranmere 4-0 on Merseyside last weekend, flexing their considerable muscle against their nearest rivals and Forest Green – who have won six of their last seven home games – should also prove too strong for The Exiles.

Over 1.5 Forest Green Team Goals

With 56 goals in 27 games, Forest Green are way out in front as League Two’s most prolific side this season and in Jamille Matt and Matt Stevens, the champions-elect wield two of the division’s most lethal finishers. Rovers have notched at least twice in six of their last seven home assignments and the firepower at their disposal makes them an excellent prospect in the over 1.5 team goals market on Saturday.

Matt Stevens to Score Anytime

Matt Stevens is locked in an individual battle with clubmate Jamille Matt to be the club’s leading marksman this term and both players sit on 17 goals ahead of Saturday’s game. Stevens – who notched for the fourth game running against Port Vale in midweek – has the edge over Matt in terms of current form however, and the 23-year-old is our bet to boost his numbers against Newport.

Forest Green vs Newport Match Preview: Promotion contenders go head-to-head

Forest Green

Forest Green are enjoying a terrific campaign in Rob Edwards’ maiden campaign with the club and Rovers are eight points clear at the summit of League Two with a game in hand over nearest rivals Tranmere. Forest Green butchered Tranmere 4-0 last weekend, though they had to show a more robust side to their character in midweek to snatch a point late on at Port Vale. The title favourites have now gone 16 games without defeat in the fourth tier.

Newport

Newport’s 2-1 triumph over Barrow last weekend was their fourth win on the spin in League Two and match-winner Dom Telford (20) is the only player in the division to have notched more often than Forest Green pair Jamille Matt and Matt Stevens (17 each). County boss James Rowberry is really starting to get a tune out of his players, though their return of just two wins from their last six fixtures on the road is a cause for concern.
