League One sides Forest Green and Cheltenham Town will go head to head in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday as the World Cup fevers continue to disrupt domestic footballing action. The hosts have won just once in the last six games now, that too against a Conference League side, South Shields. But, Cheltenham isn't doing very well either, with their own tally of just two wins from the last nine fixtures in all competitions. With that being said, this Tuesday's clash becomes an all-out opportunity for either side to one-up their counterparts with a change in recent form. Their home and away forms respectively are in shambles too, with Forest Green losing their last two home games and Cheltenham failing to win all of their last three away outings. Both sides have scored only a combined two goals in these five fixtures mentioned - incredibly poor!

Forest Green Rovers vs Cheltenham Town Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

With either side going through a rough patch, there is no doubt that they will be cautious in their approach towards this tie. So, under 2.5 goals being scored could be a great shout, and very probable too, going with the recent goalscoring numbers of either side. While Forest Green have seen 2 or fewer goals in each of their last six games, Cheltenham Town has the same small margin tally in five of their last six matches played. Another good shout could be both sides scoring as this has been a constant pattern in four of the last five meetings between the two sides. We expect this game to be either a 1-0 win at either end of a 1-1 draw till full-time, forcing the game into extra time for settling the tie. Nevertheless, there shouldn't be a likelihood of more than 2 goals on Tuesday.

Forest Green Rovers Team News

Midfielder Corey O'Keeffe and striker Connor Wickham have been incredible this season, as the duo have combined to contribute 11 goals and assists between them this season (League One). O'Keeffe also leads the charts in chance creation as the Forest Green Rover has a key pass rate of 1.60 per 90 minutes. He is matched by his fellow midfield compatriot, Regan Hendry, in the segment but with Hendry not being one of the starting eleven members, O'Keeffe cannot rely on anyone else for creativity. Centre-back Jordan Moore-Taylor will be another name which will be new to the EFL Trophy, but not new to League One faithful. Moore-Taylor intercepts 1.3 key passes per game to save his side from any dangerous consequences.

Players to watch: Connor Wickham, Corey O'Keeffe, Jordan Moore-Taylor

Cheltenham Town Team News

Cheltenham are highly likely to play their first eleven on Tuesday as they will be facing fellow League One counterparts, Forest Green, this week. This means that names like Caleb Taylor and Luke Southwood will be the first names on the clean sheet, barring any injuries. While Taylor is the leading interceptor in the squad with 1.2 key passes stopped at the last minute, Southwood has one of the best save percentages in the league with a high number of shots faced. Forwards Alfie May and Dan N'Lundulu have scored or assisted 11 of the 15 Cheltenham goals this season in League One which is incredible. But, this over-reliance on May and N'Lundulu means that their failure to impact leads to a straight downfall for this side.
