Forest Green Rovers Prediction

Forest Green Rovers were on the end of a 2-1 loss at home to high-flying 2nd placed Bury on the weekend but they’ll be hopeful of bouncing back with all three points in Tuesday night’s clash against Grimsby Town as the hosts look to consolidate their current play-off position in League Two.

Forest Green had previously strung together a useful looking six-match unbeaten run in the fourth tier having recorded wins against Yeovil Town, Crewe Alexandra, Newport County and Northampton Town along with points against Cheltenham Town and Oldham Athletic, both of which were draws away from home, 2-2 and 0-0 respectively.

At home, Forest Green have produced a mixed season of results so far as their home record of 4-6-3 13/11 indicates, but two of their three defeats this season have been to teams sitting in the top six of the division (Bury And Colchester United).

Midfielder Williams (6 goals) and forward Reid (6 goals) look the most likely for the hosts.


Key-Facts – Forest Green Rovers v Grimsby Town

  • Forest Green have recently put together a 6-match unbeaten run in League Two
  • Grimsby Town have lost their last 3 matches on the trot in League Two
  • Grimsby Town have failed to score in 6 of their 14 away matches to date


Grimsby Town Prediction

Grimsby Town were handed a 1-0 defeat in their local clash against Lincoln City last Saturday which left The Mariners in the lowly position of 15th place on the League Two ladder, but it’s certainly an improvement from last season’s close shave with relegation last term.

However, Grimsby Town have now lost their last three league matches on the trot with defeats against Mansfield Town, Macclesfield Town and Lincoln City and they face another tough and very long trip down to the west country to face play-off chasing Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night.

Grimsby have also produced mixed results away from home as they’ve captured wins on the road at Port Vale and Exeter City but have also fallen to defeats at Cheltenham Town and Lincoln City amidst an overall away record of 4-2-8 11/18.

Forward Thomas (7 goals) appears to be their best hopes of scoring this evening, but Grimsby have failed to score in 6 of their 14 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Forest Green Rovers will be keen to take all three points here but I advise using the handicap on them tonight.
