If you can’t seem to decide on a bet for Forest Green vs Derby, check our top betting predictions for this duel here:

Derby to Win

Our first Forest Green vs Derby prediction is for the Rams to record a much-needed win. Derby dropped out of the play-off spots last weekend but only on goal difference so for them, every remaining match is crucial. Forest Green on the other hand are practically relegated as they sit 12 points away from safety with just 7 games left. The Green Devils have the worst home record in the division (W5 D1 L13). They also lost 10 of their last 13 league matches (W1 D2).

BTTS – No

Our next Forest Green vs Derby prediction is for at least one of the teams to keep a clean sheet. Derby did that easily when they trashed Forest Green 4-0 at home earlier this season. Also, the Rams saw all of their last 3 league games having a clean sheet in them. The same happened with Forest Green’s last 3 league matches.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final Forest Green vs Derby prediction is a slight contradiction to the previous one as we predict that there will be 3 goals or more in the game. We give this prediction mainly because 6 of Derby’s last 7 away games had at least 3 goals in them. Also, the only 2 previous H2Hs went well over 2.5 goals – 4-0 and 4-3 Derby wins.

Forest Green vs Derby Lineups and Team News

Forest Green

Forest Green’s remaining survival hopes were probably extinguished for good last weekend when they lost 0-1 away vs Portsmouth. Yet again the Green Devils offered very little in attack and they have won just once in the last 18 rounds, which is why they find themselves 12 points adrift from safety.

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. The main wing-back O’Keeffe is back after a ban though so he might start. Star playmaker Stevenson is out injured but there are no other serious health issues.

Derby

Derby dropped out of the top 6 after a deserved 0-2 home defeat vs Ipswich made it 3 consecutive losses. The Rams started that last game slow and this was the reason why they lost. Lately, the form had been awful but Derby still have everything to play for so they remain highly motivated.

Enter the busy Easter weekend practically at full strength as the 3 players currently nursing problems are very rarely used anyway. Expected to make changes to the lineup with the likes of Hourihane and Barkhuizen pushing for recalls. At the same time, the struggling for form striker Collins, with no goal in the last 10 rounds, might be benched.
