Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale and Forest Green go head to head in a highly-anticipated game at Vale Park on day 18 of the new League Two campaign. The Valiants did not make a flying start to the season, but their recent performances are surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Following a thrilling 6-3 win over Bolton, Port Vale shared the spoils with Colchester United in their last league match, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Forest Green.
The Green Army, on the other hand, are eyeing automatic promotion to the League One, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Port Vale. Forest Green did well to beat the likes of Harrogate and Cambridge United in the previous two league fixtures, but beating the in-form Valiants in Burslem is easier said than done. A close encounter is own the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
