The Forresters:

Cinderford have a mixed bag of form but do carry plenty of goal threat. Forwards Ben Brooks and Michael Symons have lots of experience at this level, the former haven’t scored in each of his last 3 games. Full back Harrison Summers also grabbed a couple of goals in the hosts last win.

The Farm:

Farm are still struggling to find some consistency but goals have not been a problem of late. Owen Howe got his 7th of the season in midweek and the man who missed that game, Jake Gosling, will be looking to continue his fine form, which saw the trickster score 2 in 3 games.

The Form:

Both sides are consistently inconsistent so far but Cinderford will be far happier with how their season is going. The home side sit mid table and have looked far more comfortable at home than away. Farm are still winless in the league despite the upturn in performance and some very good cup wins. A win here could kick-start a reversal in form and get Farm moving up the league.
