Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Forest Green and Stevenage take on each other at The New Lawn on day 25 of the 2021/2022 League Two campaign. The Green Army are eager to retain top position in the standings, and we predict that they will stick to their attacking style of play. The attacking partnership of Matt and Stevens was in a perfect working order in a 5-5 draw with Oldham, meaning that the opposition defenders should have the duo at bay.
The Boro, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Swindon in their last league match. Stevenage do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Nailsworth, and they are unlikely to grab something from Saturday’s clash. In the first half of the season Forest Green crushed Stevenage 4-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.

He made his second debut for Colchester United against Northampton Town on February 2, 2019.

Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
