Dean Keates’ 25th game in charge sees us going in search of a third consecutive away win for the first time since December 2015. Having re-discovered the ability to win away from home, we now need to remember how to keep clean sheets on the road. Last March we emerged from The New Lawn with a 0-0 draw despite having both Blaine Hudson and Connor … Continue reading PREVIEW: Forest Green Rovers v Wrexham AFC

The problem with season-defining matches is you can only spot them with hindsight. The 6-1 beating at Crewe in 1992, the 1-0 loss at Exeter in 2003 and the decision by Dean Saunders to play Jamie Tolley behind the strikers at Kettering in and throw caution to the wind all stand out as moments which, either by developing a new way of playing or offering … Continue reading Forest Green Rovers 0 Wrexham 1

In fact, that’s not true: it seems to be a permanent debate, not a seasonal one! Last season Sam Rusell got off to a good start to the season, but once Maxwell took his place it was plain to most observers … Continue reading >The Passion of Scott Shearer
