Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on the New Lawn when Forest Green and Newport County take on each other in the League Two derby. Forest Green recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southend in their last league match, with the team cementing their spot in top seven. The Green Army aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but Tuesday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Exiles are leading the chase for automatic promotion ahead of Matchday 15, and, to make things even better for the fans, they outclassed Salford City 3-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend. Newport County are high on spirits ahead of the midweek match, and given Forest Green’s attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that 19 goals in total have been netted in the previous five meetings between the two clubs.
