Rivalries in football are a massive part of the game, and although they might bring an ugly side every now and again, without them, the sport just wouldn’t be the same.
The Premier League might have the Manchester and Merseyside derbies, along with match-ups like Brighton v Crystal Palace, but the EFL has some fierce, fierce rivalries across the board.
A few aren’t even in the same league at the moment, but you can bet if they were to clash, their rivalries couldn’t be ignored.
Of course, they don’t have to be local to matter either, with incidents involving both clubs adding fuel to any lingering fire.
With all this in mind, we take a look at what we believe are 15 of the EFL’s biggest rivalries at this current time…
15) Cheltenham Town v Forest Green Rovers
The rivalry between Cheltenham and Forest Green stretches back some distance, with the clubs not really meeting on many occasions in the history of the games.
However, when they have, it has been fierce, and now, both are competing against each other in League Two.
At the time of writing, they sit third and fourth, giving this rivalry another chapter to develop in 2019/20.
