The Mariners welcome league rivals Forest Green Rovers to Blundell Park tomorrow (kick-off 3pm) off the back of last weekend’s draw at Morecambe.

Town will be looking to get back to winning ways seven days after the score draw which saw Danny Rose’s early opener be levelled by a second half Morecambe goal.

Forest Green Rovers

These two sides last met in mid-November when both teams played out an entertaining score draw at the New Lawn. The Mariners found themselves two goals down at half time after a rampant Kyle McAllister gave the hosts a healthy lead. Town matched that in the second half after two goals from substitute Donovan Wilson saw the Mariners take a point home.

Forest Green are currently managed by Steve Cotteril and they have experienced a change in form under his guidance since the departures of both Troy Deeney and David Horseman.

Rovers enter this game having picked up seven points out of their previous four games as opposed to two points in their prior four games, including an impressive draw against promotion chasing Wrexham last time out.

Tomorrow’s visitors however have only picked up three wins away from home in the league this season, with only one of those wins coming since the start of September. That being a 2-1 win at current play-off side Barrow.

Matt Stevens is Forest Green’s current top scorer having managed to bag 10 goals out of a possible 30 games for the Gloucestershire side this campaign.
