Forest Green to Win
Rob Edwards saw Forest Green Rovers lose out on promotion last term around in the playoffs and are not leaving anything to chance this time around. They enjoy pole position after thirteen rounds of league action and are primed for automatic action with a four-point lead over their rivals. They should add to their tally against Salford City, who have lost four of their last five away fixtures in all competitions.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Salford City has only scored four goals in their last five away trips, while Forest Green's tally in home matches across the same period stands at five strikes. Both sides are struggling to score with aplomb and this match should not be any different. Their meetings last campaign finished with an Under 2.5 total goals and we are predicting this trend to continue this weekend.
Both Teams to Score: No
Gary Bowyer saw his side reign supreme over the Green Devils last season, claiming a goalless draw at home before claiming a 0-2 away win. The season before also saw a similar return as both sides scored in this fixture, while Forest Green claimed a 0-4 away win. With both sides finding it difficult to score regularly, we do not expect both sides to score in this matchup.
Forest Green vs Salford: Team News and Match Preview
The Green Devils missed out on promotion to League One in the play-offs and will be unwilling to put their fate in the lottery again. They have started this season with aplomb and it remains to be seen if Rob Edwards can ensure the early momentum throughout the campaign. Experienced Jamaican forward, Jamille Matt, has been the reason for their output this season, providing seven goals and chipping in with five assists to lead their charge.
While Rob Edwards is getting the praise for Forest Green's performances, Gary Bowyer is scratching his head to get Salford City out of midtable mediocrity. The Ammies are constantly trying to come up with the numbers on the scoreboard as their backlines allow all and sundry to pass them. They have found success of late, moving clear of relegation slots and inching towards the top-half of the table with eight points in their last five fixtures.
