Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester Community Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Colchester United and Forest Green. The U’s aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Morecambe and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Forest Green. Barring any fresh injury worries, Danny Cowley is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Shrimps at the weekend.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Accrington. Steve Cotterill’s troops have already suffered seven defeats on the road this term and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Colchester United’s party at Colchester Community Stadium. As for the away team, Matty Taylor is no longer part of the team after joining Cheltenham Town. In the first half of the season Forest Green rolled over Colchester United 5-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
