The TV cameras will be at The New Lawn on Friday night for Forest Green’s League Two clash with Swindon and we’re backing the home team to be inspired by being in the spotlight.
Rovers have taken a while to find their feet at this level, but have come up against some of the better teams in this division during the early stages of the season.
Mark Cooper will now be keen to kick-start the campaign and 9/5 for a home win against his former club is good enough to get the vote in our Forest Green vs Swindon betting predictions.
A Look At Forest Green Rovers’ Betting Odds
Forest Green benefited from some solid financial backing when earning promotion from the National League last term and strengthened again towards the end of this summer’s transfer window.
Liverpool striker Toni Gomes and Wolves midfielder Will Randall were two highly-rated young prospects snapped up on loan and should make a useful contribution at this level.
Coming from behind to claim a draw at Port Vale last week ended a run of three straight defeats and should boost morale.
Cooper tweaked his tactics for that match to make Rovers harder to break down and the overall performance definitely gave them something to build on.
“This is a start, but we have to maintain that commitment, stop making silly mistakes and we will be fine,” commented the manager.
We like 35/4 for a 2-1 home win for our Forest Green vs Swindon betting tips.
A Look At Swindon Town’s Betting Odds
Swindon have been a Jekyll and Hyde team so far this term, with a 3-0 romp against title favourites Luton on the road clearly the highlight.
David Flitcroft’s side looked set for another big win when racing into a 2-0 lead at home to Stevenage on Saturday, but were eventually left holding on at 3-2.
The sloppy displays associated with last season’s League One relegation are still appearing, though, with Crawley winning 3-0 at the County Ground and Barnet 4-1.
This will be another test of Town’s temperament in front of what should be a fired-up crowd.
Looking at the Forest Green vs Swindon odds, 4/1 for a home win and both teams to score takes the eye.
Port Vale 1-1 FOREST GREEN – Omar Bugiel
SWINDON 3-2 Stevenage – Luke Norris (2), Keshi Anderson
Head-to-head: Swindon 3-2 Forest Green
