Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Broadhall Way pits together Stevenage and Forest Green, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 8. Stevenage do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. Since the Boro are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Forest Green, home win should not be considered. To make things even worse for the hosts, Guyana midfielder Terence Vancooten is banned for the match.
The Green Army, on the other hand, are determined to secure automatic promotion to the League One, and given their display in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Northampton, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the away team. Jamaica international Jamille Matt scored the winner against Northampton, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Scott Cuthbert ):
Born in Alexandria, Scotland on June 15, 1987, Scott Cuthbert is a defender who plays for Stevenage in the League Two. Cuthbert is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he did not see any game action with the Hoops in the Scottish Premiership.
After ending his loan spells with Livingston and St. Mirren, the Scottish footballer joined Swindon Town in 2009 where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring five goals in 80 appearances for the club, Scott Cuthbert moved to Leyton Orient before the start of the 2011/12 season.
After almost a five-year spell with the Brisbane Road outfit, the right-footed defender joined Stevenage in the summer of 2018, and he has been playing for the Posh ever since. He made his Stevenage debut in a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers in the 2018/19 season opener. At the end of the campaign the Scottish footballer was named the club’s Player of the Year.
Highlighted Team (Forest Green):
Forest Green are an English club which was founded back in 1889. The Rovers host fellow League Two teams at the New Lawn, the stadium with the capacity of 5,302. Forest Green played their first home league game on October 6, 1889, with the team sharing the spoils with Brimscombe.
Green is the dominant colour of their home kit, and Forest Green footballers wear black shirts and black shorts when playing on the travels. In the 1981/82 season the club won the FA Vase, with the team beating Rainworth Miners Welfare 3-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
It has to noted that town of Nailsworth, where Forest Green are based, is the smallest settlement to ever host a Football League club. In December 2012 the club won a prize for growing a field without using chemicals. cheltenham town are regarded as one of the club’s fiercest rivals.
