Our Prediction:

Colchester will win

Forest Green – Colchester Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

Making the trip to the New Lane is a Colchester United side who will be disappointed that they couldnt hit the ground running as they bid to finally reclaim a spot in League One. Much like their hosts, the visitors have had to rely on a strong defensive record, but they have struggled to find the back of the net on a regular basis and have paid the price in terms of their points return.

Fortunately, theyve only conceded four in seven, keeping a pleasing three clean sheets in the process. Their 3-0 win away at Lincoln City left them just one point away from the Play-Offs, and promotion will again be their aim. The Us will be hoping to pick up their form from the end of last season, where they won three of their last five, into the opening weekend. These are two sides with aspirations to be doing better than they currently are and both will view this as a key fixture in their respective bids to get their seasons back on track. A draw is definitely a way in here. Mark Coopers men head into match-day eight having scored a rather measly five goals in seven matches.

League Table

Colchester come into this game following a goalless draw with Darrell Clarkes Walsall on the weekend. Former Tranmere Rovers and Ipswich Town player John McGreal is the manager of the club having replaced Kevin Keen in April 2016 after a brief caretaker spell. Colchester will be hoping to go five games unbeaten in League Two when they travel to the New Lawn to take on League Twos resident vegans- Forest Green Rovers.

The hosts good form has come largely thanks to their ability to keep the ball out of the net, and the fact that they have the third best defensive record in the division is testament to that fact. After an excellent start to the campaign, Forest Green Rovers know that they will need to maintain their form for as long as possible if they are not going to leave things to chance this time around and win promotion via the automatic method this time around.

Forest Green Rovers vs Colchester United Prediction & Betting Tips

In League Two this weekend, we see two sides who are hoping to win a spot in Englands third tier come the end of the season as Forest Green Rovers welcome Colchester United to The New Lawn. We may still be in the earlier stages of the season but there is never a bad time to put points on the board and take steps towards your goal.

The first meeting of the two sides came at the end of August 2017 with a 5-1 defeat for Rovers at the JobServe Community Stadium, to round off a first month in the league. The two meetings at The New Lawn have also gone the way of the Us in the form of a 2-1 and a 1-0 victory. Success has been hard to come by for Forest Green Rovers against Colchester, the two sides meeting three times, all in the Football League.

After all, theyve done a more than reasonable job of creating more than their opponents in each of their last two at this venue. Saturdays visitors had started to struggle at the back; theyd conceded six in four and were without a clean sheet, though they managed to tighten up against both Oldham, Walsall and Northampton, so keeping things tight against low-scoring opposition shouldnt be beyond Colchester.

Primeira Liga

Forest Green lost their game before that when they conceded early in the first-half and another late in the second-half to suffer a 2-0 home defeat to Newport County. Forest Green won their last game 1-0 against Cambridge United at Abbey Park. They had battled valiantly against Premier League Bournemouth for a goalless draw in the week before and went out of the League Cup in a penalty shootout.
