Forest Green Rovers vs Oldham Match Preview
Forest Green Rovers have seen a disappointing end to what’s been a very solid campaign last term, as they fell just short of the Promotion Play-offs with a 2-1 aggregate loss to Tranmere – who later secured the promotion to League One. They now kick off the new campaign hoping for another similar quest and start the journey hosting Oldham on Saturday afternoon.
Rovers have struggled to shake it off during the pre-season, though, and we’ve seen them bag just one win in three outings. They’ve beaten Yate Town in a great 1-6 win but failed to build on it more recently as they suffered a thriller 3-4 loss to Bristol City and saw a 1-1 draw against Bath City.
Oldham have hopes they can capitalize on such inconsistency but they have struggles of their own, where they suffered three losses in four outings and bagged just a 2-2 draw against Ashton United along the way – which will be disappointing despite a tougher schedule on their hands.
Latics have also failed to find the net at all in their last two outings, which could be more worrying. They’ve seen both Stockport County (0-2) and Halifax Town (0-1) beat them and getting more from his attacking line is what Laurent Banide’s been used to and what he’ll expect now.
Forest Green Rovers have seen a busy summer and it will be interesting to see how they cope with the changes early in the new campaign. However, we feel they have what it takes to get off on the right foot and we’ll thus back them to secure all three points in a Home win priced at 11/10 with Unibet.
We have seen both sides conceding goals and struggling to keep it together throughout the pre-season outings. With that in mind, we’re now hoping to see goals on both ends and an exciting game of football at the New Lawn, as we also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 27/25 with Unibet.
