Forest Green to Win
Forest Green have made a blistering start to their League Two campaign, blazing their way through the opening weeks of the season with four wins from four matches. The league leaders are playing with a huge amount of confidence and following their 6-3 hammering of Crawley last weekend, Rovers should have enough momentum to push for another victory against struggling Port Vale.
Over 1.5 Forest Green Team Goals
Forest Green were already among the division’s most prolific teams before their 6-3 mauling of Crawley last week, though their attacking display against The Reds would have sent fresh shockwaves through League Two. Rovers have scored at least twice in all four of their league assignments since the summer and with that strong record behind them, they look an excellent price in the over 1.5 team goals market again when Port Vale visit.
Jamille Matt to Score Anytime
Jamille Matt was a key performer for Forest Green last season and the 31-year-old attacker has been just as effective so far this term. Matt has notched four goals in his last five appearances for Rovers and the Jamaican is priced generously to add to his tally for the campaign against Port Vale.
Forest Green vs Port Vale: Match Preview
Forest Green made a typically ambitious move in the summer when they handed ex-England U-16s coach Rob Edwards the managerial reins, and their decision to bring the innovative coach on board has paid early dividends. Table-topping Rovers have been performing brilliantly since Edwards’ arrival and they are favourites to maintain their 100% winning start against Port Vale on Saturday.
The fixture computer was a little unkind to Port Vale this season, though manager Darrell Clarke would still have expected his team to have lodged their first victory by now. The Valiants have drawn three and lost one of their first four matches, though most worryingly of all, they have managed to score just a single goal so far.
