South Shields 2-1

Reason for tip

Forest Green have exited the FA Cup at this stage in each of the last two seasons and were knocked out by non-league opposition in Round One last season. The league side could bow out in the First Round yet again but should have enough quality to score at least once on Saturday.

South Shields vs Forest Green Rovers Predictions

  • Forest Green were knocked out of the FA Cup by non-league opposition last season
  • Forest Green have exited this competition in the First Round in each of the last two seasons
  • South Shields are unbeaten at home this season (W7, D2)
  • Forest Green have failed to win any of their last five away matches (D2, L3)

Hosts more than capable of causing an upset

South Shields beat National League, Scunthorpe, in the final qualifying round to reach the First-Round proper in the FA Cup. Scunthorpe play their league football two division higher than South Shields in the English football pyramid – Saturday’s hosts rank as a lively underdog to take out League One, Forest Green. South Shields are unbeaten on home soil this season (W7, D2) and they will have a sold-out 1st Cloud Arena behind them on Saturday – they will certainly fancy their chances against a Forest Green side who have struggled on the road all season.

Forest Green vulnerable on the road

Forest Green can expect no easy passage into Round Two given their struggles on the road this season. They have failed to win any of their last five away matches (D2, L3) and have exited the FA Cup at this stage of the competition in each of the last two seasons. Forest Green were downed by National League South side, St Albans, in the First-Round of the FA Cup last season and make little appeal at odds-on when they travel north on Saturday.

South Shields Draw no Bet will be the main selection for Saturday’s game, with a 2-1 home victory forming the Correct Score prediction.
