Stevenage vs Forest Green
English League Two
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Lamex Stadium (Stevenage).
Promotional play-offs are at stake when Stevenage play host to Forest Green Rovers in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday No 30 in League Two. There are just three points separating the two teams in the top half of the standings coming into the match at The Lamex Stadium.
Back-to-back wins over Crawley Town and Morecambe climbed Stevenage up to 9th position in the league ladder. They are now just three points shy of sixth-placed Forest Green Rovers. Can Boro make it three victories on the trot and move lock on points with their counterparts inside the promotional play-offs spots?
Stevenage vs Forest Green: Head-to-head
The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head games between these two outfits.
It happened 8 times in 20 matches. Stevenage bagged 7 wins and 5 losses in remaining 12 ties.
Forest Green only managed to leave The Lamex Stadium victorious once in ten visits (four wins for Boro and five draws).
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they locked horns in mid-August at The New Lawn.
Stevenage vs Forest Green: Prediction
Forest Green returned to winning ways last weekend when they stormed past bottom-half Grimsby Town 3-0 in front of the home crowd. They previously took only one point from two matches against Oldham Athletic (0-0 draw) and Bury (1-2 loss). Striker Christian Doidge moved to the top of team’s goal-scorers charts with a brace in the mentioned 3-0 thumping of Grimsby Town last weekend.
The quality should be on Forest Green’s side, but Stevenage can really be a tough nut to crack in their own backyard. Boro won 8, drew 2 and lost just 4 of 14 home matches in this term of League Two. Given they will come into this off the back of two subsequent wins, we find the value in backing the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 1.85.
