Forest Green Rovers
Forest Green Rovers will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 1-4 League Two defeat in their last game at the hands of Crewe Alexandra.
The only name on the scoresheet from Forest Green Rovers was Reece Brown (35'). Chris Long (49'), Courtney Baker-Richardson (60', 69') and Elliott Nevitt (82') scored for Crewe Alexandra.
Over their preceding six games, David Horseman's Forest Green Rovers have scored a total of 7 times giving them an average number of goals scored per match of 1.17.
Coming into this contest, Forest Green Rovers are without a home win in the past 8 matches in the league. Such a poor run.
After a loss in their previous game against Wrexham in League Two action, Doncaster Rovers and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only scorer from Doncaster Rovers was Modou Faal (52'). Luke Young (37') and Elliot Lee (88') scored for Wrexham.
Doncaster Rovers have had no problems opening up opposition defences of late, having scored 6 times in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Doncaster Rovers have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 5 of those same outings.
Heading into this fixture, Doncaster Rovers are without a win away from home in their last 11 matches in the league. What a terrible run of away results.
Team News: Forest Green Rovers
There is just the sole fitness concern for the Forest Green Rovers gaffer David Horseman to contend with due to a largely intact squad. Callum Jones (Leg Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Doncaster Rovers
With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Doncaster Rovers manager Grant McCann has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
We’re envisaging that Doncaster Rovers may find it difficult to score goals against this Forest Green Rovers outfit who we think will likely win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 1-0 victory for Forest Green Rovers at the end of this one.
