Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Peninsula Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Salford and Forest Green. Salford dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Exeter in their opener, but they did well to crush Grimsby 4-0 on the road on Matchday 2, but they do not want to stop now. The Lions aim to keep on climbing the League Two standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Forest Green on Saturday afternoon.
The Green Army outplayed Bolton on the road in the opening match of the season, with the team sharing the spoils with Bradford City at the weekend. Considering that Forest Green looked sharp in front of goal in their last league game, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier Salford recorded a 2-1 win over Forest Green.
