Forest Green Rovers Preview – Can Forest Green win four on trot?

A three-match winning streak has maintained Forest Green Rovers’ bid for automatic promotion in League Two thanks to victories over Carlisle United, Oldham Athletic and Newport County respectively, while overall, the hosts are unbeaten in their last five matches.

Forest Green Rovers have actually won four of their last five matches with an earlier 1-0 win away from home against Leyton Orient, while the bigger picture shows that the home side have lost just twice in their last 16 matches overall.

The hosts have also lost just two of their 13 matches at home so far this season amidst an overall record of 6-5-2 18/13 and their only previous meeting against Southend United ended in a 1-0 win on the road for Forest Green Rovers.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Southend United Preview – Can Southend grab lifeline?

Southend United remain bottom of League Two after their 1-0 defeat at home to Bolton Wanderers on the weekend which became the visitors’ fifth loss in seven matches but the Essex outfit are still just two points adrift of safety.

After a promising run of five matches without defeat in League Two from early December through to Boxing Day which included wins against Scunthorpe United, Grimsby Town and Colchester United, Southend have subsequently slumped to just two wins out of their last 10 matches.

It’s been Southend’s form away from home though which has been the major problem as they possess a poor record of 2-5-7 5/22 which includes failing to score in nine of their 14 away matches to date.
