Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham Town and Forest Green take on each other at Whaddon Park on day 10 of the new League Two campaign. The Robins aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Port Vale, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in Saturday’s football match. Cheltenham Town are eager to retain their spot in top seven, but the game against Forest Green will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Morecambe and Grimsby, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Whaddon Park clash. Considering that 13 goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between the two clubs in all competitions, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
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.
