Recent respective form guides

Forest Green Rovers's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. Rovers have conceded a disappointing 6 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.

Forest Green Rovers lie just outside the playoff positions in the Blue Square (Conference) Premier, picking up 65 points from their 43 games so far.
