Playing his cards close to his chest, Forest Green boss Rob Edwards hinted hot-shot striker Matty Stevens could feature in tomorrow night’s League Two clash at home to Exeter City.
Edwards revealed Stevens tested positive for Covid last week despite showing no symptoms along with Taylor Allen and now one of the sidelined duo is set to come into the squad against a Grecians side, who have lost their last four games.
Rovers blew away the cobwebs of inactivity on New Year’s Day with an emphatic 2-0 victory over Stevenage thanks to goals from Stevens’ deputy Josh March and captain Jamille Matt.
Using their game in hand, a victory over the Grecians on Tuesday would see Rovers open up a seemingly unassailable 10-point lead at the top of the table.
Ben Stevenson is expected to return to the starting eleven in place of Ebou Adams who flew out to represent Gambia in the Africa Cup of Nations due to start on January 9th in Cameroon. Gambia are in Group F where they will face Mali, Mauritania and Tunisia who boast Manchester United star Hannibal Mejbri.
