Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering a heavy 4-0 loss at Ipswich Town, Wycombe will be aiming to get back on course when they take on Forest Green on Matchday 41. The Chairboys are five points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that Monday’s clash is of big importance for them. Wycombe are desperate to get back on course, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be David Wheeler as he scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with MK Dons, with Chem Campbell pushing for a spot in the starting XI.
The Green Army, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 26 points on their account. Since the rock-bottom side will almost certainly drop to League Two, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
