Stevenage vs Forest Green Prediction
Stevenage admitted their ninth defeat of the season last week after Crewe thrashed them on home soil with a 5-1 scoreline. The hosts have not tasted success in their past five games on the trot, and have garnered just sixteen points this season.
Meanwhile, Forest Green have been coping a lot better in their respective campaign. The visitors have stumbled just twice in their past five League Two fixtures and will be making the trip Broadwall Hall on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against current table-toppers Swindon.
At the moment, the guests are dwelling in the top half of the ladder, with thirty-six points to their name. It is also worth mentioning that Forest Green have been branded as the second-best away side in the cluster, as far as statistics go.
In sharp contrast, Stevenage have been struggling to get into the groove, and have let down the home crowd far too many times here. Taking into account that the visitors have also been securing the bragging rights in their past two visits to this stadium as well, the hosts have little or no chance of pulling off an upset this week.
Furthermore, the guests have not been consistent in racking up the goalscoring charts on the road. Miserably, they have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last seven outings.
Meanwhile, Stevenage have scored just nine goals at home so far. Taking into account that their previous meeting here also witnessed fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, a low scoring affair is certainly looming large in this one.
