Swindon vs Forest Green Predictions and Match Preview

Swindon vs Forest Green
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 12th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: County Ground (Swindon).

Richie Wellens’s men are going through a peculiar phase in their season. They have not had much trouble in performing well in away ties, but their home-matches have been quite the opposite. The team would really love to troubleshoot and fix their apparent journey to the playoffs, but the visitor this week might make them postpone their self-analysis.

The reason being, without contest, the Green Devils have been the absolute best team on the road in the League Two competition. No other group has outscored them in away fixtures, and only two have conceded fewer than them. Not even Lincoln, who has almost locked in their promotion, has been able to outclass this team in games away from home.

Swindon vs Forest Green Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of the last five wins belong to the Rovers.
  • The last six matches in a row had under 2.5 goals.
  • Except for one tie back in 2007, all games at the County Ground had fewer than three goals.
  • The last three fixtures at this venue ended with a 1-0 scoreline.
  • Three of the last five games and four of the last seven failed to see the hosts of the particular day on the scoresheet.

Swindon vs Forest Green Prediction

The Green Army has been the best team on the road this season in the League Two. They have scored the most number of goals in away ties, conceded the fewest except for two other squads, and registered the most number of points. Mark Cooper has been particular about his boys’ performance away from home. And the team has lived up to the expectations put on their shoulders. Since match-day 1, Forest sits atop the ranking of away performances.

Against a group struggling to find their foot at home at the moment, it would be very less likely for this set of visitors to lose.

The last six h2h games in a row had under 2.5 goals, and six of the last seven had only one team on the scorecard. At this venue, barring one tie, every other one ended with only one or none of the teams on the scoresheet and also with fewer than three goals. Also, the Rovers kept clean sheets in their last two road trips, while the hosts for this tie failed to score in seven of their last eleven attempts at the County Ground.

There’s no realistic way in which the Robins would find the net twice.
