Clean Sheet Barnsley

Our first Forest Green vs Barnsley prediction backs the Tykes to keep a clean sheet on their visit to the already relegated bottom-dwellers Forest Green. Barnsley were able to keep clean sheets in 3 of their last 5 away games. Now they are up against a Forest Green team that scored a single goal in their last 5 matches.

Under 1.5 Barnsley Goals

Our next Forest Green vs Barnsley prediction is for Barnsley to dominate and yet to fail to score more than 1 goal in this game. Barnsley haven’t been scoring enough goals on the road and that’s why they lost their chance for an automatic promotion already. They scored more than 1 in only 3 of their last 11 away games. At the same time, on all their struggles Forest Green had been sort of compact at home and conceded 2 or more only twice in their last 5 home outings.

Barnsley to Score First

Our final Forest Green vs Barnsley prediction backs the Tykes again. This time we think they will score the first goal of the game. Barnsley have scored the first goal in 28 of their 40 league matches so far. At the same time, Forest Green conceded the first goal in 4 of their last 6 matches.

Forest Green vs Barnsley Lineups and Team News

Forest Green

Forest Green are going down a division and there’s nothing that could change that for the Green Devils after a run of 1 win in the last 20 rounds. Last time around expected 0-2 away loss vs Wycombe suffered. Once more the gaffer used some teenagers as he is already building his squad for next season.

The manager already started trusting some youngsters as he starts to think about what squad he will have next season in the lower division. This trend is likely to continue. Star playmaker Stevenson is out injured but there are no other serious health issues.

Barnsley

Barnsley’s recent stumbles ended their chances of a top 2 finish. They remain well-established in the playoff spots though and are not under much pressure right now. On Easter Monday did enough to deserve a 2-1 home win vs Shrewsbury, despite a late red card.

Some changes to the lineup are possible but key playmaker Anderson should be fit enough to play, took a hit to the face in the last match. His main partner in midfield Cadden is set to be absent though as he was the one sent off in the last game. Have 6 other players nursing knocks and bruises but neither of them particularly important squad member. Barnsley have a big squad anyway so they have plenty of options.
