Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Forest Green and Peterborough square off against each other at The New Lawn in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program. The Green Army have been struggling to find their form in 2023, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. The rock-bottom side are desperate to give fans something to cheer about, but they face a difficult task in Saturday’s encounter. Centre-back Jordan Moore-Taylor should miss out once again with a long-term injury.
Meanwhile, the Posh aim to build on back-to-back wins over Port Vale and Portsmouth. Peterborough are eager to climb to the playoffs berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Forest Green’s dressing room. A man to watch in the away side will be Jonson Clarke-Harris, who scored a brace in a 2-1 win over Portsmouth. In the first half of the season Peterborough crushed Forest Green 4-1.
Highlighted Player (Dominic Bernard):
After spending his youth career at Tredworth Tigers and Birmingham City, Dom Bernard signed a professional deal with the Blues. However, he did not see any game action with Birmingham City at the senior level as he was instantly sent on loan at Aldershot Town.
After making 35 appearances for the Shots in the league, Dom Bernard joined Forest Green in the summer of 2019. He made his debut with the Green Army against Oldham Athletic on the opening day of the 2019/2020 season. Bernard, who quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Forest Green, has one cap with the Republic of Ireland U18 team while making two appearances with the U17 team.
He was born in Gloucester, England on March 29, 1997, and he wears the number 3 shirt at Forest Green. His main position is right back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a centre-back as well.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
