Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Macclesfield Town have been sharing the spoils with their rivals quite often of late, with the team playing out draws with the likes of Mansfield Town, Salford City, Bradford City, Walsall, and Grimsby Town in the last five league fixtures. The Silkmen, though, need to return to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to escape the danger zone in the League Two standings.
Considering that Macclesfield Town are likely to rely on their solid defence against Forest Green, we believe that punters can find value in betting on under 2.5 goals. The Green Army, on the other hand, failed to find the net in four of their last five league fixtures. A low-scoring affair is on the cards at the New Lawn, and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in their last game of the year.
