For our Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers prediction, we’re opting for a 3-2 home victory for Rob Edwards’ men.
Forest Green and Bristol Rovers square off against each other at the New Lawn in League Two action this weekend. The Green Army did well to beat Barrow 2-0 on Tuesday evening, with the team retaining top position in the standings.
The league leaders are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Bristol Rovers defenders should have Mathew Stevens at bay as he scored a brace in the midweek triumph.
Four of the last five meetings between Forest Green and Bristol Rovers at the New Lawn has concluded with just one side getting on the scoreboard. We believe that will not be the case this time around given both sides' improved goal scoring form and equality in the quality of attackers. The Rovers have seen both sides score in their last six fixtures and that should be the case on Saturday evening.
The Pirates, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures. Bristol Rovers are six points behind the playoffs berth, but given Forest Green’s attacking potential, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the New Lawn clash. You should know that the Green Army are eyeing their third consecutive win on home soil.
Bristol Rovers are coming to terms with life in League Two following their relegation from League One. They are unbeaten in their last four matches, winning twice and drawing the same amount. This run will surely come to an end as they face an in-form Forest Green.
The Green Devils have three wins and one draw in the same period. History is also on the hosts' side as they have defeated their rivals twice, albeit in club friendlies.
Forest Green have run to the summit of League Two thanks to their impressive goal scoring form. With 32 goals from 17 domestic outings, they are roughly averaging two goals per match.
Bristol Rovers can complicate matters for them with their tally of 22 goals from the same number of games. As a consequence, we are backing a high scoring affair between a team in the ascendency and one adjusting to its new surroundings.
For our Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers prediction, we’re opting for over 2.5 goals.
