Tip Reasoning

  • Barrow’s most common losing scoreline at home was 1-2 (four times).
  • Forest Green have lost just once in away league action all season (W9, D9, L1).
  • Barrow haven’t won a home game since December (D5, L5).

It’s getting a little cosy at the bottom

With three sides locked on 37 points apiece in the race to avoid the drop, Barrow are desperate to move away from that scrap, though a home game against league leading Forest Green Rovers is not exactly the ideal fixture to do so.

Highlighting the absolute disparity between these sides is the fact that only Scunthorpe (14) picked up fewer home points than Barrow in this League Two campaign (W3, D9, L8).

Meanwhile, Forest Green are the league’s best performing away side with 36 road points, despite having played two fewer away league games than their closest rivals in the away league form stakes!

Vegan Easter eggs all around

While it is sometimes dangerous to underestimate a side desperate for survival, the sheer gulf in class between the sides is just about as big as it gets in League Two terms, so we are willing to take a chance with our prediction.

That is for a Forest Green win, a price better than evens on the early tissue looks too good to pass up for such a side, even with their tendency to draw games. Barrow have simply not shown enough to warrant a draw selection here.

As for the correct score, we are sticking with Barrow’s most common home league losing scoreline, a 1-2 defeat.
