Our prediction for this League 2 match:
AFC Wimbledon will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Colchester and Sutton when they take on Forest Green on Saturday afternoon. The Dons have been producing excellent displays in the League Two of late and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. Midfielder Harry Pell could sneak into the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the last league match, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Swindon and Newport, but given AFC Wimbledon’s fine form, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. As for the visiting team, all Taylor, Robertson, and Maddox are pushing for a start after the trio came off the bench in the last league game.
Highlighted Team (Forest Green):
Forest Green are an English club which was founded back in 1889. The Rovers host fellow League Two teams at the New Lawn, the stadium with the capacity of 5,302. Forest Green played their first home league game on October 6, 1889, with the team sharing the spoils with Brimscombe.
Green is the dominant colour of their home kit, and Forest Green footballers wear black shirts and black shorts when playing on the travels. In the 1981/82 season the club won the FA Vase, with the team beating Rainworth Miners Welfare 3-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
It has to noted that town of Nailsworth, where Forest Green are based, is the smallest settlement to ever host a Football League club. In December 2012 the club won a prize for growing a field without using chemicals. cheltenham town are regarded as one of the club’s fiercest rivals.
