Forest Green to Win
Hartlepool have collected more points at home than any other team in League Two this term, though they lost their unbeaten record at Victoria Park in their last fixture there against Newport. Forest Green will arrive in Durham with an unblemished away record on Saturday and with their hosts a little fragile following their reverse against County, Rovers are our favourites to prevail.
Both Teams to Score
Hartlepool failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last eight League Two assignments while five of their last six fourth-tier tussles at Victoria Park produced goals at both ends. Forest Green meanwhile, have notched in all but one of their eight away tests in the division this term and on that evidence, backing both teams to find the net this weekend is advised.
Matthew Stevens to Score Anytime
Forest Green hotshot Matthew Stevens has scored twice in as many games for Rovers and his effort against Walsall in the EFL Trophy last time out took his tally to ten in all competitions for the campaign. Stevens looks ready to punish just about any defence he faces at present and bettors are advised to back him in the anytime goalscorer market against Hartlepool this weekend with that in mind.

Hartlepool Team News
Prolific midfielder Gavan Holohan and rapid striker Tyler Burey are both out this weekend in a bitter double blow to Hartlepool's chances. Jamie Sterry, Ben Killip and Olufela Olomola are all rated as doubtful. Pools lost for the first time at home this season in a 2-1 reverse to Newport last weekend, and their confidence might have been damaged by the 5-0 thumping they suffered at Leyton Orient shortly before.
Forest Green Team News
Forest Green haven't played a league fixture since October 30 with cup endeavours taking centre stage for Rovers of late. An embarrassing FA Cup exit at the hands of St Albans City was far from ideal, but their elimination should at least allow them to focus their efforts on winning League Two. Rovers enjoyed a 2-0 win at Walsall in the EFL Trophy last Wednesday.
