Stevenage are without a win in five games ahead of their visit of table-topping Forest Green on Saturday, though Borough have yet to taste defeat at home this term and they could be tricky opponents for the early pace-setters. Rovers were held to a 0-0 draw at Exeter in their last away assignment, while Stevenage shared the spoils in each of their last two tests on home soil. With the host’s proving a tough nut to crack at The Lamex Stadium, another draw looks possible here.
Both Teams to Score
Stevenage have traded blows with their opponents in four of their last five League Two fixtures and backing both teams to score again this weekend could return another successful bet. BTTS landed in two of Forest Green’s three away contests since the summer and with the teams’ respective records so far adding weight, we recommend sticking to the same market on Saturday.
Half Time Result: Draw
Stevenage’s League Two fixtures have taken some time to get going this season, indeed, five of their first seven matches of the campaign were level at half time. 100% of their games at The Lamex Stadium have been all square at the interval and the same half time outcome is worth backing when Forest Rovers visit Hertfordshire on Saturday.
Stevenage vs Forest Green: Match Preview
Stevenage Team News
Midfielder Charlie Carter is Stevenage manager Alex Revell’s only main injury concern ahead of the weekend, though here is a chance the 24-year-old will recover in time. Borough were beaten 2-1 at Sutton last time out, though they might have rescued a point from the game had Terence Vancooten not been sent off just after the hour mark. The midfielder will be suspended for Saturday’s game as a result.
Forest Green Team News
Udoka Godwin-Malife could be missing from Rovers defence on Saturday, though Rob Edwards has a strong squad to pick from elsewhere. Forest Green snapped a four-match winless run with a timely 1-0 win over Northampton last time out and unsurprisingly, talisman Jamille Matt provided the decisive moment. Watch out for the prolific 31-year-old on Saturday.
