Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Sands Venue Stadium when Scunthorpe and Forest Green square off against each other in the League Two round 12. The Iron have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding nine goals in total in the previous two league fixtures. Scunthorpe are stuck at the bottom of the standings, and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s game.
Forest Green, on the other hand, are eyeing automatic promotion to League One, and they should take advantage of Scunthorpe’s shaky defence. Josh March should start from the bench after failing to convert a late penalty kick in the 2-0 loss to Swindon. Anyhow, Forest Green are more of a team than Scunthorpe, and we predict that the Green Army are going to prove their worth on the field.
