Forest Green and Port Vale face each other in a highly-anticipated game at the Innocent New Lawn. The Green Army are eager to kick 2021 in style as their game against Oldham was abandoned, and we are positive that the will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Forest Green are eyeing their sixth home win of the season, and they are surely capable of beating Port Vale on home soil. Teenage attacker Jake Young, who found the net in a 2-1 loss to Crawley, should keep his place in the starting XI.
The Valiants, on the other hand, did well to roll over Grimsby at home in their last league match, but seeing that they have already suffered six defeats on the road this season, we are tempted to put our money on the Green Army this time out. Port Vale boss Danny Pugh rested first-team regulars in the EFL Trophy defeat to Sunderland, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Forest Green.
Forest Green Rovers haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, hitting the target in one hundred percent of their last six games. They’ve hit an aggregate of seven goals during that time while also conceding a total of five goals. With no two games being the same, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend shall be sustained in this upcoming match or not.
Ahead of this meeting, Forest Green Rovers have not registered a win against Port Vale in their last three head to head league matches.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Sunderland in EFL Trophy action, Port Vale and their fans will hope for a better result here. A tendency of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Port Vale has become noticeable of late. Examining their last six meetings reveals that this has occurred five times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal aggregate of 12 and the Valiants have scored six.
