Reason For Dagenham and Red. VS Forest Green Betting Tips

Dagenham & Redbridge host Forest Green Rovers in the first leg of their play-off semi final with the victor set to go on to fight for a place in the Football League at Wembley. We are backing two of the best attacking units in the division to produce an open and exciting game and think the best chance of a decent return is to combine a both teams to score bet with an over 2.5 goals bet, which is available at 20/21 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think that the hosts will continue their excellent record over Forest Green and are backing a 2-1 home win, which is priced at 9/1 with the same site.

You only have to take one look at the plight of York City to recognise the excellent job John Still has done at Dagenham this season. Like the Daggers, York were relegated from the Football League last season but their fortunes this term have seen Dagenham make the play-offs, whilst the Minstermen have suffered another demotion and will play National League North football next season.

The turnaround in fortune has come in no small part thanks to Dagenham’s attacking threat. They average an impressive 1.72 goals per game and have scored 11 in their last five outings. This attacking intent has often left the Daggers exposed at the back however and as a result they have only managed three clean sheets in their previous 17 league games.

Much like their hosts, Forest Green’s success this season has been built on an excellent attack. Rovers finished the regular league campaign as the division’s top scorers having scored 88 goals in their 46 games. With such an impressive goal output it will come as little surprise to learn that 61% of their matches finished with over 2.5 goals being scored and there was an average of 3.13 goals per game in their away matches this term.

We can also take confidence in the head to head record between these sides as six of the eight times they have met have finished with both teams scoring and with a total of 22 goals coming from those eight meetings, matches between these two produces an average of 2.75 goals per game.

Head To Head

Dagenham & Redbridge have an excellent record over Forest Green having won four and drawn four of the eight meetings between the sides. When they met in the regular season they drew 1-1 at The New Lawn and Dagenham were victorious after a 2-1 win at Victoria Road.
