Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sands Venue Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Scunthorpe United and Forest Green Rovers, the two out-of-form sides. Scunthorpe United suffered three losses in the previous four league fixtures, with the team sinking to the danger zone at the weekend. The Iron are eager to get back on course in the League Two, and the fact that they defeated Cheltenham Town in their last home fixture is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the League Two. Since Forest Green are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match, we believe that bettors can find value in backing both teams to score. In their first and only meeting in the League Two Scunthorpe United recorded a 2-0 win over Forest Green Rovers.
