Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Forest Green will look to cement top position in League One when they take on Hartlepool at the New Lawn on Matchday 42. The Green Army are on the right track to secure automatic promotion, and a win over Pools will see them move one step closer to meeting the goal. Josh March, who scored the winner against Mansfield on Tuesday, should keep his place in the starting XI, while the likes of Bernard, Whitehouse, Edwards, Covil, Bunker, and Stevens remain in the recovery room.
Hartlepool, on the other hand, collected only one point from the last three league fixtures. The visitors are stuck in the middle of the table, and given Forest Green’s fine form, we do not believe that the underdogs are going to grab something from the match. There are no fresh selection worries in the away side.
