Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Forest Green Rovers and Swindon Town face each other at the New Lawn in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Green Army made a promising start to the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Matchday 22. The hosts, who failed to find the net in the previous three games in all competitions, face an uphill task against the league leaders; therefore, home win should not be considered.
The Robins, on the other hand, are eyeing their eighth consecutive win in the League Two. Swindon Town footballers are high on spirits ahead of the trip to Nailsworth, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in the home team’s dressing room. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be experienced attacker Owen Doyle, who is enjoying a season to remember.
Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
