Forest Green Rovers Preview – Can Forest Green move out of bottom four?

After a few close misses in previous campaigns, Forest Green Rovers finally achieved promotion from League Two at the end of last season and the club now find themselves in the English third tier for the first time ever in their footballing history but results so far this season suggest this could be a tough campaign if the hosts are to consolidate their place in League One this term.

Forest Green Rovers have won just twice in their opening nine games which have been in the form of wins against Bristol Rovers (away) and Accrington Stanley (at home), but the newcomers have also slipped to five defeats already this season and although they hold home advantage for this Saturday’s lunchtime date with Exeter City, this hasn’t necessarily worked in their favour so far.

Rovers have lost four out of their opening five home games of this new term after being handed defeats by Ipswich Town, Plymouth Argyle, Shrewsbury Town and Morecambe, while the 2-1 win over Accrington Stanley has been more of a consolation in these early weeks of the new season.

As a result, Forest Green now find themselves sitting third from bottom in the early League One standings and early indications appear to be unfavourable as the hosts have already lost four home games so far this term.

In addition, Forest Green Rovers have failed to beat their visitors in each of the previous eight meetings and this Saturday’s clash may be no exception either.

Exeter City Preview – Can Grecians extend hold over Forest Green?

Despite losing their last two league games on the trot in League One with defeats suffered against Shrewsbury Town and Burton Albion respectively, Exeter City may still feel they have a decent chance of ending this recent mini slump when they make their way to the New Lawn for this Saturday’s lunchtime encounter against Forest Green Rovers.

Overall results have seen Exeter City produce a mixed bag of returns so far this season as The Grecians have picked up victories over Port Vale, Wycombe Wanderers and MK Dons but they’ve also slipped to four defeats as well this term, losing to the likes of Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town, along with the aforementioned losses to Shrewsbury Town and Burton Albion.

The fact that Exeter have managed to pick up three wins though may just tip the scales in their favour for this lunchtime clash, although the visitors will need to make a definite improvement upon previous results on the road with Exeter failing to win any of their last 14 outings on the road in this division.

Having lost 11 of these 14 away day trips, Exeter City look to have their work cut out if they’re to grab all three points here in this visit to the New Lawn, but previous history is on The Grecians’ side as they have been unbeaten in the last eight meetings against their hosts and this may prove to be pivotal once again on Saturday lunchtime.
