Forest Green – Crewe preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Forest Green vs Crewe lineups.

Forest Green

Forest Green have shown a strange form so far. The Green Devils collected 7 points from 3 away games in the league. However, they lost all of their 3 home matches up to now. 

The mood is not bad though after Forest Green went undefeated in their last 3 games (W2 D1). On Tuesday they cruised to an easy 3-0 home win in the EFL Trophy against the higher-league Shrewsbury. Right before that earned 4 points from their last 2 league matches. 

Dabo, Garrick and Davis remain the main injury concern. The last 2 are regular starters in midfield when fit but both have been struggling with minor niggles all season and are yet to play. 

Predicted Lineup:

Daniels (GK), Bernard, Inniss, Robson, Robertson, Bunker, McCann, McAllister, Stevens, Taylor & Deeney

Crewe

Crewe have made a solid start to the new campaign. They lost only once in the league so far (W2 D3). However, only 2 of those 6 league matches were on the road and from those 2 away games Crewe collected a single point. 

Another defeat was suffered on Tuesday night at the hands of the higher-league Port Vale side in the EFL trophy. 

Playmaker Colkett is the main injury concern. He’s yet to play this season due to an ankle issue but reports hint that he might be back soon. In his absence, the 18-year-old Holicek is getting extended minutes but he’s yet to impress. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Davies (GK), Adebisi, Williams, Demetriou, O’Riordan, Cooney, Offord, Thomas, Tracey, Long & Nevitt
