Accrington vs Forest Green Odds, Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Forest Green look doomed already after going winless in the last 13 rounds. Accrington have shown some fight lately, losing only 2 of their last 5, but they also remain in the relegation zone and desperately need points. With all that in mind, we give you our free betting predictions for this game.

First Half Correct Score – 0-0

Our first Accrington vs Forest Green prediction is for this six-pointer between two struggling sides to be locked at 0-0 come halftime. We think this is likely because Accrington are officially the slowest starting team in the entire League One – just 4 first-half goals scored all season. Also, Forest Green tend to be very passive on the road. The Green Devils have scored just 14 goals in 17 away games. They don’t score their first goal away from home on average until the 47th minute.

Under 2.5 Goals

With both teams struggling in attack, our second Accrington vs Forest Green prediction seems pretty logical. All of Accrington’s last 6 games had less than 3 goals in them. Also, 4 of Forest Green’s last 5 league games had less than 3 goals scored in them.

To add to that Accrington managed to score more than 1 goal in a match just once in the last 11 rounds. At the same time, Forest Green have failed to score more than 1 goal in any of their last 10 away league games.

Half With Most Goals – Second

Considering that Accrington are the slowest starting team in the entire League One with only 4 first-half goals scored all season. Also, Forest Green tend to start their away games very cautiously. We think it will be the second half that will produce the most goals. This is also backed by the fact that in 3 of the last 4 H2H clashes more goals were scored in the second half.

Accrington vs Forest Green Lineups, Match Preview and Latest Team News

Accrington

Accrington were good value for a decent 0-0 away draw against Burton last weekend. This was a third clean sheet in just the last 5 rounds and with 5 points from those 5 games, Stanley are feeling a bit better about themselves right now.

The squad is stripped to the bare bone for the coming match with as many as 10 players ruled out. Among those 6 regular starters so Accrington will be forced to use many fringe players.

The main issues are in defence and midfield. Stanley’s starting defenders Astley and Tharme will miss the match injured. Also, the entire preferred starting 4 in midfield will be out. Leigh is suspended, while all of Coyle, Hamilton and Pritchard continue rehabilitation.

Forest Green

Forest Green are now winless in 13 consecutive rounds. Last weekend got a bit lucky to save a 1-1 home draw against Lincoln. The Green Devils collected a miserable 3 points from those 13 games. As a result, survival looks all but impossible already.

Important midfielder McGeough is fully fit again and ready to start after making his comeback off the bench last weekend. Forest Green have only 2 long-term absentees, with solid defender Moore-Taylor the only important sidelined player.
