📝 Match Preview: Forest Green Rovers (H)

All you need to know as the league leaders visit SJP

3 September 2021

League leaders Forest Green Rovers are the latest visitors to St James Park as they make the trip down the M5 on Saturday afternoon.

The Grecians picked up a hard fought point on the road at Harrogate Town last weekend as Josh Key's goal helped City to a 1-1 draw, and have also had their first week without a midweek fixture since the beginning of the season. 

Rovers' 100% league record was ended last weekend when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Port Vale, while they were also in action on Tuesday in the Papa John's Trophy when they drew 1-1 with Northampton before being beaten on the deciding penalties. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"When we are at our best at home we play on the front foot and really get after the opposition," he said. 

"Forest Green have scored a lot of goals against this season and are a team that are challenging at the top. We want to go after and challenge them, and test ourselves against them.

"Forest Green play football the right way and give young players a chance. It's a relitavely close game too, which gives the game that extra bit of edge."
