Forest Green vs Grimsby Prediction & Match Preview

Forest Green vs Grimsby
England- League Two.
Date: Tuesday,22nd January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The New Lawn, Nailsworth.

Green army is looking to improve their current position in the league table with a win against Grimsby on Tuesday. With a peculiar history against this opposition, they will have more pressure on them in this upcoming match.

The Green Devils are 7th in the table at present. But that could change any moment since the league is so tightly contested. A win would certainly help them, but a loss will mean they may even go below the top-10 positions.

A 6 match unbeaten run was going on for the Greens. But it came to an end with the loss to Bury at home. That 1-2 loss is their first one this New Year and it will certainly affect their confidence. Four of their recent 5 games had over 2.5 goals in total too. Rovers have lost 3 and won 2 of their previous 5 games in front of the home ground. In 3 of those matches also over 2.5 goals were scored.

Visitors are suffering from a 4 match losing run at present in all competitions. They never scored in any of those matches and the most common score was 1-0 in 3 games. After a win over Exeter in League Two, none of their matches had over 2.5 goals at the full time.

A similar away form exists for the Mighty Mariners, losing 3 of their last 5 matches on the road. Less than 2.5 goals came in 3 of those 5 matches away from home.

With dominance over the hosts, Mariners will definitely hope for 3 points after this match.

Forest Green vs Grimsby: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Grimsby has won 4 of the last 5 h2h matches against this opposition across all venues.

Forest Green vs Grimsby: Prediction

There is a high chance that we may see a final score with more than 2.5 goals in total. The recent 4 h2h matches between these two sides had such a scoreline. The last 2 home matches of the Green Army had a similar trend as well. With the hosts scoring 40 goals in the league and the visitors conceding 35 till now, we can be sure of goals in this match. Thus a bet can be placed on over 2.5 goals in total with 1.85 odds.

The Green army has lost the last 3 meetings against the Mariners on the trot. With such a streak going on, they may not be the best pick to win the game. But that is not the case considering their recent form. Meanwhile, the visitors have an active 4 match losing run. So we can bet on the hosts to win with 1.85 odds.
