Our prediction for this League 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Walsall and Forest Green square off against each other at Bescot Stadium on Matchday 2. The Saddlers failed to fly high in the season opener, with the team losing to Tranmere, but they are surely capable of matching Forest Green at home ground. Both Phillips and Earing are pushing for a start, and seeing that the hosts are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash, we are positive that they will find the net this time out.
The Green Army, on the other hand, kicked off the new League Two campaign with a 2-1 win over Sutton. Forest Green are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but beating Walsall on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Bescot Stadium, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Matthew Stevens, who returned from a loan spell with Stevenage, will be one of the men to watch in the away team.
