Forest Green Preview – Rovers to extend unbeaten form?

Forest Green are top of the League Two table by seven points and with this game in hand.

So they are in great shape in their promotion push at the moment.

The Gloucestershire club are unbeaten in their last thirteen league matches now.

It’s been a run of six on home turf from them without defeat.

In the match outright for Tuesday’s home game, Forest Green are 4/5 odds-on* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at William Hill).

That says a lot about them because Mansfield arrive in great form.

Defensively Forest Green have been so strong recently.

They have not given up a single goal in any of their last five home fixtures.

It’s been a top return of W5 D1 in their last six at the New Lawn.

This will be their first meeting with Mansfield this season.

Our betting prediction:
FGR 2-Goal Winning Margin

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at William Hill)


With Forest Green having conceded at under a goal per home game, this probably will be a low scoring affair.

Under 2.5 goals is at 11/10 in football betting* (odds recorded 20:19 GMT on January 17th, 2022 at William Hill).

Only 25% of matches at the New Lawn this season have gotten above that goal line.

All but two of Forest Green’s home wins in their W8 D2 L2 home record this season, have been by a margin of at least two goals.

They have been dominant and could drive further towards that automatic promotion with three points from this one.


Mansfield Preview – Can the Stags stop Rovers?

Mansfield had a terrible time of things through the early part of this League Two season.

After winning their opening two matches, they failed to win any of the following twelve matches.

But the Stages have bounced back in impressive fashion since then.

Mansfield have won nine of their last ten league games (L1).

It’s a current six-match winning streak that they are on at the moment.

They have netted at least two goals in each of their last four as well.

But some of this does need to be put into context.

Their last five league matches (W5) have all been on home turf.

The Stags have not played an away from a league match since November 27th last year when they won at Crawley.

The overall away road for Mansfield this season is only W2 D2 L5.

So while the overall current form of Mansfield is red-hot at the moment, it’s all been at home.

That’s the importance of really looking into stats for football betting.

This season Mansfield have played four away matches against teams who are currently in the top eight.

Their record from that is four defeats, with just one goal scored in total.

So they have struggled badly away at stronger teams.

There’s more to that as well because Mansfield have averaged well under a goal per away game this season.
