Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers Prediction, Betting Odds and Free Tips 11/03/2023

*These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

The League One clash Forest Green – Bristol Rovers is between a team stuck at the foot of the table and desperate and a team stuck in mid-table and low on motivation. Below is our preview of this match with some free betting tips, predictions and useful stats.

Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers Odds, Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Forest Green look doomed already after going winless in the last 14 rounds. Bristol Rovers have proved tough to beat but they struggle to find wins themselves and as a result, they are guaranteed mid-table existence for the rest of the season. With all that in mind, we give you our free betting predictions for this game.

Over 0.5 Bristol Goals

Our first Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers prediction somewhat contradicts our next two free betting tips but we think some that disagree with the other predictions can go for it.

Due to Forest Green failing to keep a clean sheet in their last 15 games and Bristol being able to score in 12 of their last 14 away matches, we think the Gas will be able to score at least 1 goal in this encounter too.

Forest Green to Win

With our next Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers prediction we opt to give the Green Devils one last chance of survival as anything but a win from this coming match will pretty much end their hopes officially. We back this tip with the fact that Forest Green actually enjoy this matchup a lot and they had been near perfect in the last 6 H2Hs – (W5 D1).

To further prove that Forest Green like this fixture is the fact that their only away win all season came when they beat Bristol Rovers 2-1. Also, it’s worth considering the fact that Bristol’s motivation will be low as the Gas are stuck in mid-table mediocrity for the rest of the season.

Under 2.5 Goals

Considering the first two tips if they are to become reality this third Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers prediction is an impossible outcome. However, if any of the first 2 scenarios don’t transpire then considering that the game will have fewer than 3 total goals scored should be on the table.

We make this prediction based on the fact that 3 of the last 4 H2H clashes went under 2.5 total goals. Also, all of Forest Green’s last 3 home games had fewer than 3 goals scored in them.

Forest Green vs Bristol Rovers Lineups, Match Preview and Latest Team News

Forest Green

Forest Green are now winless in 14 consecutive rounds. Last weekend the Green Devils lost 1-2 on their visit to Accrington. This was a direct clash against another struggling team and after the defeat Forest Green are now 7 points adrift from their nearest rival. This turns the coming match into a do-or-die affair as far as the Green Devils are concerned.

Some changes to the lineup can be expected. Fit-again defender Cargill could be a boost to the squad if he starts. Important midfielder Stevenson also hopes to overcome a minor knee issue on time and play but he remains touch-and-go.

Starting full-back Casey misses the match due to suspension. Moore-Taylor and Onyango are out injured, so this limits the options in midfield.

Bristol Rovers

Bristol held playoff-chasing Barnsley to a 0-0 home draw last weekend. Rovers defended well in this match but going forward created precious little and never looked like scoring. The form in the last 8 rounds had been dismal (W1 D2 L5) and as a result, the Pirates lost all hope of challenging for much this season.

Have 4 long-term absentees, including the main left-back Anderton, starting anchor-man Rossitier and wide midfielder Anderson. On top of that, captain Coutts is a serious doubt due to a hamstring injury.
