With just one defeat between them in their last ten matches combined, it’s not hard to see why both of these two teams currently reside inside the top five. With this in mind, this could be a particularly hard fixture to call.
Instead of favouring either side, the way to go here is goals, or rather lack of goals. At odds of 5/6 ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ is the bet to be on in this fixture.
Both of these two sides have looked particularly solid at the back in recent weeks and thus we could see a real element of “cancelling each other out” here. Aldershot have conceded just two goals in their last five matches and have conceded just one in their last five at home. On the other hand, Forest Green may have conceded five in their last five, but four of those came in a crazy 4-3 match away at Dover. The visitors have since looked solid at the back and have conceded just one goal in their last four.
Additionally, four of the last five Aldershot matches have seen less than three goals hit the net, while the same can be said for Forest Green in four of their last five.
All things considered, although this match is tight to call in terms of a winner, fans could be set for a rather boring encounter – one that has few goals.
