Tip Reasoning

  • Four of Forest Green’s last five away matches have had three or more goals
  • Northampton have had three or more goals in three of their last four games
  • Rovers’ away league fixtures are averaging 3.5 goals per 90 minutes

Forest Green looking to extend lead at the top

It has been a sensational season so far for Forest Green Rovers and a large reason behind their lofty position in the table is their goalscoring exploits.

The table toppers have scored a staggering 47 times in the league already, an average in excess of two goals per match, way more than any other side in the division.

Postponements mean they have not played on the road since a 5-5 draw with Oldham in December, but there have been 19 goals in their last three away outings.

Northampton on a losing run

Northampton have lost their last two matches, to Swindon and Crawley, and there are concerns about their defence who, after a sturdy start to the campaign, have kept just one clean sheet in 11 games.

They are still scoring plenty, with nine of their last 12 fixtures containing three or more goals, and while Forest Green have yet to lose on the road, the Cobblers have lost three times in 11 games at Sixfields.

If recent trends are anything to go by, goals are highly likely in this game, so I predict there will be three or more goals in the match, but I think the two teams will cancel each other out, so I select 2-2 as a correct score prediction.
