Forest Green Rovers Preview – Can Rovers cause an upset?

Forest Green Rovers had a fine season in EFL League Two last time around, finishing in sixth spot and booking their place in the play-offs. Unfortunately, they were beaten by Newport County in the semi-finals.

Rovers’ ultimate ambition will be winning promotion to EFL League One, and they got off to the perfect start last weekend. Rob Edwards’ men left it late to see off National League champions Sutton United at The New Lawn, with Forest Green’s winner coming in injury time.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1320 GMT, Monday 9 August)

Testing themselves against a Championship team in the cup early doors could stand them in good stead for a tough league season ahead. After beating Sutton on the opening weekend, can Forest Green shock Bristol City on Tuesday?

Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins pick up first win since March?

Bristol City had a pretty abysmal 2020-21 season in the Championship. They made a promising start under Dean Holden but went backwards and eventually finished way down in 19th. Under Nigel Pearson, who took over in February, the Robins picked up just two wins.

Bristol City were on their way to a much-needed three points on the opening weekend of the Championship. Chris Martin’s goal on the stroke of half time had them dreaming of three points against Blackpool. However, Pearson’s men shipped in injury time to let two points slip at Ashton Gate.
