Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in six of Alvechurch’s last seven games and they’ve showed that they can breach the backline of quality opponents as they scored twice against Cheltenham, a side sitting four tiers above them along with Forest Green.

Forest Green Rovers vs Alvechurch Predictions

  • Forest Green Rovers sit rock-bottom in League One and may not prioritise a cup run.
  • Alvechurch defeated League One side Cheltenham in the last round.
  • Both teams scored in six of Alvechurch’s last seven matches.

A welcome distraction for Forest Green

Currently propping up the League One standings, Forest Green have bigger things to worry about than an FA Cup run, although victory here would see them seal their first third round appearance in club history.

They should realistically be confident of doing so at home to the lowest ranked side left in the competition, seventh-tier Alvechurch FC.

However, the visitors aren’t pushovers as they proved in the last round when defeating Cheltenham Town away from home, a side that sit eight points above Forest Green in League One!

A dangerous game to pick

Considering that four tiers of the English footballing pyramid separate these sides, it seems crazy that Forest Green are priced up at 2/5. That price probably represents value on the face of it, but Alvechurch have already proven that the magic of the cup is alive and well and on that evidence, we’re avoiding the W-D-W angle.

Instead, going for goals at both ends could be the smart play here. This is priced up at a slightly more generous price than the Forest Green win and could land given that both teams scored in Forest Green’s last two games, and six of Alvechurch’s last seven competitive clashes.

For smaller stakes, we’re taking a chance on Alvechurch to come up trumps with a slender 2-1 win in the correct score market. This is a tentative selection but after defeating Cheltenham, there is no reason that they won’t enter this clash in the mood to claim another EFL scalp.
