Forest Green vs Walsall – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Walsall have lost seven of their last eight matches ahead of their trip to play table-topping Forest Green. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Forest Green to Win
With an 11-point gap at the top of the table already established, Forest Green look certain to land the League Two title this term in Rob Edwards’ first campaign at the helm and Rovers can strengthen their bid for silverware with another victory over Walsall. The Saddlers have lost seven of their last eight matches in the division and they should fall short again against their superior hosts.
Over 1.5 Forest Green Team Goals
Forest Green are out on their own as League Two’s most prolific team this season and the champions-elect have been averaging over two goals per 90 minutes in the fourth tier. Rovers knocked two goals past Walsall when the teams last met in October and Forest Green are available at a generous price to beat the over 1.5 team goals line against the same struggling opponents on Saturday.
Matt Stevens to Score Anytime
Matt Stevens is blazing a trail through League Two this term and the Forest Green hotshot is in the running to land the Golden Boot. With 20 goals for the campaign and seven strikes in his last seven appearances alone, Stevens is in sensational form and the 24-year-old is a solid option in the anytime goalscorer stakes again this weekend.
Forest Green vs Walsall Match Preview: Hosts expected to march on
Forest Green were held to a 1-1 draw at Sutton in their last assignment though Rovers have been close to untouchable at the Fully Charged New Lawn. Rob Edwards’ impressive outfit have won eight of their last nine tests on home soil and their chances of posting another positive result should be aided by the return of midfielder Regan Hendry from injury this week.
Walsall upset the odds to beat Forest Green’s closest title rivals Tranmere 1-0 last weekend thanks to a late Conor Wilkinson spot-kick, though their chances of producing another coupon-busting result at Rovers feel slim. Stephen Ward and Jack Earing were fit enough to make the bench against Tranmere and both players will be pushing to start this weekend. Joss Labadie should be available again following his suspension for an accumulation of bookings.
