Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at The New Lawn pits together Forest Green and Crawley Town. The Green Army shared the spoils with Exeter in the League Two derby at the weekend, but it has to be noted that they are eyeing their third consecutive home win. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Aaron Collins, who scored his fifth goal of the season on Boxing Day. The Red Devils, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous seven games in all competitions.
Crawley Town are likely to go for a win in the midweek clash, and given Forest Green’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. The Red Devils midfielder Tarryn Allarakhiam who was sent off in the 1-1 draw with Newport, misses the game through suspension. Anyhow, we are about to see goals galore at The New Lawn.
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.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
