Forest Green vs Crewe Alexandra Prediction
Forest Green bounced back to winning ways last week in their clash with Leyton Orient on the road and posted a 4-2 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. The hosts were quick to exert their dominance in that latter matchup and were 3-0 up in the opening forty-five minutes. Despite conceding twice post the restart, Junior Mondal came up with the final nail in the coffin two minutes before the end of regulation time to make sure that all three points went their way.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have admitted defeat just once in their last five games in League 2.
On the other hand, Crewe managed to bring a two-match losing streak to a halt in their most recent clash with Morecambe, that too in style. The visitors were much the better side in that clash and slotted five unanswered goals past their foes, who were a man down by the half-hour mark.
Be that as it may, the guests have just one win to boast of from their last three outings in the fourth division. To make matters worse, the visiting contingent have been at the losing end in each of their previous two trips here on the trot.
Meanwhile, Forest Green have stumbled just once in their past five games on home soil. Given the home advantage at hand, Forest Green are sizing up to be favorites to come out on top in this one.
However, the hosts have been forced to share the spoils in half of their last four clashes here. Hence, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Forest Green.
Furthermore, Mark Cooper’s men have been guilty of napping at the back. They are now without a clean sheet in their previous four matchups at The New Law. Moreover, Crewe have been keen on getting their names on the scoresheet in their outings and have scored six goals from their last three alone.
With both teams proving their mettle in the final third, count on both sides to breach each other this Tuesday.
