Tip Reasoning

  • Forest Green have not lost a league game since October 2021.
  • Walsall lost seven of their last eight matches.
  • Walsall have scored just one goal across their last six away games.

The march goes on

It would take a bold punter to predict any other side to end up with the League Two crown and consequently promotion than Forest Green Rovers. Gander Green Lane may not sell any meat, but their opposition will surely sweat at the thought of facing them on their own patch.

Forest Green are unbeaten in 11 straight home games if just counting the results after 90 minutes (W8, D3). Providing more confidence in the home side is the fact that Forest Green have conceded just one goal across their last eight home league games, a stat which Walsall will be well aware of.

A bridge too far for Walsall

While Walsall snapped a seven-game losing run with a 1-0 win over high-flying Tranmere last time out, this fixture presents a much tougher challenge against a side who beat that same Tranmere side 4-0 on their own patch at the back end of January.

The story doesn’t get any better when just considering away form as Walsall have not scored across their last three league trips, losing each time. They will remain outside of the relegation zone no matter what at the end of this round, so this is something of a free hit for the visitors.

Overall, I predict that Forest Green should run out fairly easy victors in this game. The price looks like value even at a shade of odds on given the apparent gulf in class between these sides in both the league and form tables. For smaller stakes, I will be going for a 2-0 home win.
