Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Forest Green face each other at the People’s Pension Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. Forest Green aim to cement their spot in top seven, and a win over Crawley will see them move one step towards making it to the playoffs. The Green Army missed several clear-cut opportunities to score in the goalless draw with Exeter, but they are surely capable of Crawley Town, who failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Newport.
The Red Devils have slim chances of securing a top-seven finish, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching Forest Green. You should know that the Red Devils had no more than two goal attempts in the defeat to Newport. In the first half of the season Crawley defeated Forest Green 2-1, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. Attacker Tom Nichols is banned for the hosts.
