Forest Green Rovers News and Form

Forest Green Rovers had a torrid first half at Prenton Park last Friday, falling behind to a wonder goal shortly after having Gavin Gunning sent off for lashing out. To be fair to the Green Devils, they did well to leave Merseyside with just a one-goal deficit. The home team missed several good opportunities, and Forest Green will fancy their chances of turning this tie around at The New Lawn.

In the regular League Two campaign, Forest Green were far better away from home. Cooper’s side accumulated just 33 points at The New Lawn, with 41 of their 74 points coming on the road. The Green Army ended their League Two season with two wins from six home matches. However, they are unbeaten in three on home turf, picking up seven points from a possible nine along the way.


Both teams to score

Forest Green have been on a remarkable rise over the past few seasons and getting into League One will be dream come true for the New Lawn faithful. The Gloucestershire club may be behind in the tie, but Cooper and his boys will back themselves to turn things around on home soil. The home team are priced at 11/8 to qualify.

Tranmere Rovers News and Form

Tranmere Rovers claimed a narrow win last Friday, but it could have been so much more than just a 1-0 scoreline. The usually prolific James Norwood missed a few chances while goalscorer Banks hit the underside of the bar. Will the Merseyside outfit rue those missed opportunities?

Tranmere were very solid at home in League Two this term, winning 14 of their 23 home league fixtures. Away from home, though, Rovers won just six league matches in the regular season. The Whites have failed to win any of their last four fixtures on their travels, losing two and drawing two.

Tranmere finished just one point behind Forest Green in League Two this term, and they will be in for a tough game at The New Lawn on Monday. Will their 1-0 advantage be enough to take them into the play-off final at Wembley Stadium? Tranmere are the 8/15 favourites to go through.

Forest Green Rovers v Tranmere Rovers Predictions

Forest Green Rovers win: This tie is delicately poised after Tranmere’s 1-0 win on Friday night. Even though Forest Green have not set the world alight at home this season, the Green Devils are more than capable of turning this tie around on their own patch. I fancy Forest Green to win and both teams to score. I can also see Cooper’s troops reaching the play-off final at Tranmere’s expense, with the hosts available at 11/8 to qualify.
