Recent respective form guides

Forest Green Rovers's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Rovers have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Burton Albion's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Brewers's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Forest Green find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 18 games have yielded only 14 points. Burton Albion see themselves just below half way in the Nationwide Conference, showing a record of 24 points from their 18 games played so far,
