Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Forest Green and Port Vale face each other in a highly-anticipated game at the New Lawn. The Green Army are eager to kick 2021 in style as their game against Oldham was abandoned, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Forest Green are eyeing their sixth home win of the season, and they are surely capable of beating Port Vale on home soil. Teenage attacker Jake Young, who found the net in a 2-1 loss to Crawley, should keep his place in the starting XI.
The Valiants, on the other hand, did well to roll over Grimsby at home in their last league match, but seeing that they have already suffered six defeats on the road this season, we are tempted to put our money on the Green Army this time out. Port Vale boss Danny Pugh rested first-team regulars in the EFL Trophy defeat to Sunderland, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Forest Green.
