Port Vale Prediction

Port Vale now occupy 20th place on the League Two ladder thanks to an improved run of results in recent weeks which has seen the hosts put together a four-match unbeaten run which includes wins against 3rd placed Mansfield Town as well as fellow strugglers, Yeovil Town both at home with 2-1 and 3-0 victories respectively.

Vale have also earned valuable points on the road at Notts County and Swindon Town, both in 0-0 stalemates, but Port Vale manager, John Askey will be extremely pleased with his side keeping three clean sheets from these last four matches, and they’ll fancy their chances of causing an upset at home this Saturday against Forest Green Rovers.

After a dismal six-match losing streak at Vale Park, Port Vale have turned things around by winning their last two matches on the trot on home turf, while their home record stands at 6-3-10 22/29, but with midfielder Whitfield (4 goals) along with forwards Pope (8 goals) along with Montano and Miller (4 goals apiece) in their attacking ranks, the hosts stand a good chance of taking something from this encounter.


Key-Facts – Port Vale v Forest Green Rovers

  • Port Vale are unbeaten in their last 4 matches overall in League Two
  • Port Vale have kept 3 clean sheets in these last 4 matches
  • Forest Green Rovers have won just 2 of their last 7 away matches


Forest Green Rovers Prediction

Forest Green Rovers remained in 6th place in League Two after they shared the spoils with 9th placed Carlisle United in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at the New Lawn, and this result followed a resounding 3-0 win away at Colchester United away from home in their previous match.

However, despite Forest Green’s lofty league position, the results haven’t all gone the visitors’ way in recent times as they suffered three defeats on the trot with losses to Mansfield Town, Lincoln City and Morecambe – the latter being a heavy 3-0 defeat to their 19th placed opponents.

Overall, Forest Green have managed just two league wins from their last nine matches as the west country club have stuttered in recent weeks, with just wins over Yeovil Town and the aforementioned victory at Colchester United being the rare highlights.

Forest Green have also been unconvincing away from home as well despite a reasonable looking away record of 9-5-5 32/22 as the visitors have recorded just two wins on the road from their last seven trips.

Betting Tips Verdict

Port Vale’s recent upturn in form could see them get something from this clash, and given Forest Green’s inconsistent results away from home of late, the hosts might even nick the points here.
