Bristol City to Win

This is the first competitive meeting between Forest Green Rovers and Bristol City. They have met each other at the New Lawn in club-friendly engagements, all finishing in favour of the visitors. Given the divide of two leagues between them, it looks unlikely that this fixture will end in any other way. When referee Darren Drysdale blows for full time, City should claim qualification to the next round of League Cup.

Over 2.5 Goals

If their most recent competitive outings are any gauge of what to expect, this fixture should provide a goal fest for fans and neutrals alike. Three of Rovers last four fixtures have finished with three goals or more. For City, it is a similar reading of their recent form and we should see goals on either side of the pitch in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: No

In their last six fixtures, Forest Green have scored 11 goals which letting in nine. Bristol Rovers have also been involved with goals but have been on the receiving end. They have scored seven while conceding 14 goals. With two of their three meetings seeing both sides get represented on the scoreboard, this match should not be any different.

Forest Green vs Bristol City Fixture Preview

Forest Green Rovers

The Rovers impressed in League Two last season, finishing in a respectable sixth place and earning a place in the play-offs. They have started the new campaign in high spirits, registering a 2-1 win over Sutton United. Rob Edwards would want his charges to take this form to the League Cup as they meet Bristol City in a competitive environment for the first time. They will fancy their chances against the Championship outfit after accumulating four wins in their last five outings.

Bristol City

Nigel Pearson has the tough task of getting Bristol City back to winning ways. They are winless in their last six outings, drawing twice and facing defeat on four occasions. Their 1-1 draw against Blackpool on the opening day showed they have made improvements under the new manager. It will be important how they fare in the League Cup, which has given them a favourable draw in Forest Green Rovers. They have won all three of their meetings with the Rovers and will be looking to register a fourth on Tuesday night.
