York City v Forest Green tips
FootyOn pick out York City v Forest Green tips, ahead of the potentially crucial National League clash at Bootham Crescent.
Live on Saturday, April 29th at 12:15 GMT on BT Sport 1.
A total of 36 points and 18 places separate play-offs secured Forest Green Rovers and relegation zone dwellers York, ahead of the final match of the regular season.
However, the latter’s form does not reflect their position of 19th, and they can jump as many as three places to safety if results go their way.
So, read on to see our York City v Forest Green tips…
York to win
As mentioned above, York may be down in the drop zone, but even the bookies make them favourites for this match – with Sky Bet offering a tasty 5/4 price.
Forest Green have nothing really to play for now, as they are already secured a play-off place, while they can’t catch up confirmed champions Lincoln City in the only automatic promotion spot.
Yorkshire outfit York may have only gained one point in their last two games, but have lost just two of their past seven – four of which were wins.
They narrowly lost to Forest Green 2-1 in the reverse fixture, but they had 10 men for the final 20 minutes and the winner came in injury-time.
With a home support behind their backs this time and plenty at stake, back the Minstermen for victory this time.
Total match goals under 1.5
With so much at stake for the hosts, it will certainly be a very nervy affair.
Their last meeting at Bootham Crescent in 2012, exactly a year and day ago on April 28th, York were 1-0 victors thanks to a late winner from current player Adriano Moke during his first spell.
If you fancy it to be low-scoring again, odds of 13/5 with BetVictor say there’ll be under 1.5 total match goals.
Half-time/full-time – Draw/York win
Again, the above suggests that it is all set for a dramatic end.
A stalemate in the opening half looks likely, while the hosts can finish it off after the break.
Odds of 5/1, again with BetVictor, say that the first-half will be drawn and York will win the second-half.
