Forest Green Rovers Preview – Can the Green Army upset the Premier League side?

Forest Green Rovers have had a mixed bag of results at the start of this season. On the opening weekend of the 2022-23 EFL League One campaign, Ian Burchnall’s side beat Bristol Rovers away from home. However, they have taken just one point from a possible nine since.

Forest Green got the better of EFL League Two team Leyton Orient in the first round of the EFL Cup earlier in the month. Armani Little was the hero, netting both goals in a 2-0 Rovers victory at The New Lawn.

Our betting prediction:
Brighton to keep a clean sheet

This will be an arduous task for last term’s League Two champions, but can the Green Army cause an upset on their own patch?

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview – Potter’s men to progress to round three?

Brighton & Hove Albion impressed in the Premier League last season, taking 51 points to finish in the top half of the table. The Seagulls have started this campaign in fine fettle and could push for a European place.

Brighton are joint second in the top tier right now, winning two and drawing one of their opening three. Albion won at Old Trafford in game one before drawing 0-0 with Newcastle United at the Amex Stadium. Last weekend, Alexis Mac Allister and Leandro Trossard netted in a 2-0 win at West Ham United.
