Nottingham Forest v Middlesbrough Championship Preview, 22nd April 3.00pm

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Nottingham Forest suffered a 2-1 reverse in their last home game, which was against Balburn. They haven’t done too badly with a W5 L2 record there in their last seven though and they have posted a decent W11 D4 L6 home record this campaign. They are likely only going to get a mid-table finish at the end of the day though. In their six home games this season against the current top six they have returned a W2 D1 L3 record.

They have tallied up an average of 1.4 goals per home game this season, conceding at an average of 1 goal per game. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. Seven of their eleven home success this season have been earned by a one-goal margin. Forest are on a seven-match scoring streak at home at the moment and they have opened the scoring in 14 of their 21 home fixtures so far.

Forest were 2-0 winners at the Riverside earlier this season
Forest won this corresponding fixture 2-1 last season
Boro are W2 L3 in their last five against Notts Forest
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings

Middlesbrough News and Form

Boro haven’t had a high return of things on the road recently. They were winless in three (D1 L2) before snapping out of that slump and earning a 2-0 win at the relegation-bound Bolton in their last away game. That leaves them at a W9 D7 L5 record this season on their travels, where they have averaged 1.1 goals per game. They have conceded at under a goal per away game this season with only 38% of the road fixtures going over 2.5 goals.

Boro have taken a clean sheet in 38% of their away games this season. They have three in their last five on the road. Of the nine away wins that they have collected this season, six of them have been by just the one-goal margin. They need their defence to stand strong once again to keep their chance at a play off finish alive.

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v Middlesbrough Predictions

This could be a well-balanced game as Nottingham Forest have been a handy side on home soil. There hasn’t been a great deal to cheer about from Middlesbrough on the road recently and a win over Bolton proves nothing. The home win at 7/5 odds may be worth a look* (Betting Odds were taken from Paddy Power on April 16th, 2019 at 10:19 p.m.)

Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades have taken back to back 1-1 draws in the league after a tie against Millwall on the weekend. Their home record for the season is W13 D4 L4 and they have lost only one of their last ten league outings at Bramall Lane (W8 D1). So that’s impressive. This is their penultimate home game for the season so have to drive hard at three points. The Blades have averaged 1.8 goals per home game this season, and they have been defensively tight as well.

Sheffield United have conceded at under a goal per home game this season, taking a clean sheet in 48% of home fixtures. Each of their last seven home wins in the league have been with a clean sheet. Eight of Sheffield United’s home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals and they have been leading at the halftime break in eight home games (D13 L0). The Blades have scored in each of their last eleven home fixtures.

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest have hit the skids with a three-match losing streak. They lost 2-1 at home against Blackburn on the weekend. Out on the road, Forest have only earned three wins all season (D11 L7) and their current away form is poor. They are actually winless in their last twelve on the road at the moment and they have lost three of their last four (D1). In total, they have averaged 1.2 goals per away game this season.

Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals, with Forest earning a clean sheet in 29% of their road games. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last six played in the Championship, and in their last four away games. Forest have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last three league fixtures. Of the goals that they have put on the board away from home, 62% of them have been in the second period of fixtures.

Championship Betting

Nottingham Forest v Derby Championship Preview, 25th February 7.45pm

Nottingham Forest are on the outskirts of the playoff spots in the Championship and with a big task ahead of them to get into the mix. This is a big game for them and for Derby who are one place above them. The Rams are losing a bit of momentum and they too are playing catch-up with the top six. Read our Nottingham Forest v Derby betting tips for more.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Betting Odds*

Nottingham Forest 7/5
Derby 19/10
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)


Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest have only lost one of their last five League games, but have played out back-to-back draws heading into this one. Their home form has not been all that bad really in the Championship this season. Forest are W8 D4 L4 on home soil. Forest also won three of their last four home games (L1) including their last two. But when you look back at the bigger picture of their current form, they are just W2 D2 L3 home and away combined.

So that inconsistency is where their push for a playoff spot has hindered them. Nottingham Forest have scored 22 goals in 16 home games this season. Less than half of their League home games have ended up over 2.5 goals. They have done pretty well defensively as they have conceded at under a goal per game at home on average in the Championship.

That having been said they don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last six home fixtures. In total there has been a clean sheet for Forest in 31% of their home games. It has not been a bad season from them at all as they are currently 10 points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. Forest have conceded 80% of their home goals in the second half of games.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw between them earlier this season
The last two meetings have ended in 0-0 draws
Derby are undefeated in six against Forest (W3 D3)
Forest have failed to scored in five of their last six against the Rams

Derby News and Form

The Rams missed a chance in midweek to get back up into the top six as they suffered a shock home defeat against Millwall. While Derby are still in contention for a promotion push, they have been very inconsistent with their results. They have not won back-to-back League games since early December. In their last nine League games, they are W3 D3 L3 so it has been a bit hit and miss for them.

Overall away this season Derby have a W6 D4 L6 record on the board. The Rams are without a win in any of their last three away games and have won only one of their last five on the road (D2 L2). A big part of the problem has been a lack of clean sheets as they have managed just two all season long away from Pride Park.

Derby have scored 21 and have conceded 21 goals away from home this season. Across their last three away games, Derby have managed put just the one goal on the board had that was at current bottom side Ipswich in a 1-1 draw. But they do have the fifth best defensive record in the second tier heading into the weekend, it is not quite happening for Frank Lampard’s men at the moment.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 4/5 odds
Both teams not to score at 10/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v Derby Predictions

The home form of Nottingham Forest hasn’t been all that bad, and as Derby are pretty much hit and miss on their travels, it could be a good opportunity to back home win in the match outright.

West Brom News and Form

West Brom took a 1-0 win at rivals Stoke on the weekend, but they have failed to win any of their last three on home soil in the division (D2 L1). In their last home game, they suffered a 2-3 reverse against Middlesbrough in a top-five clash. Overall this season West Brom are W7 D5 L3 at home in the Championship. The recent defeat there against Middlesbrough snapped a seven-match undefeated streak of form that they were on at the Hawthorns. West Brom have won only one of their last six on home soil.

A positive though is that they have averaged 2.3 goals per home game this season, with 47% of their fixtures at the hawthorns going over 3.5 goals. West Brom have taken only the two home clean sheets this season. Both teams have scored in 87% of West Brom’s home games.

Derby collected a solid 1-0 away win at Wigan last weekend in the Championship, which was a great three points for them. It moved them onto back to back wins. The Rams are W5 D1 L2 in their last eight games home and away in the second tier. They have been a strong side at Pride Park with a record of W6 D2 L2 on the board so far. They have won three of their last four there as well (L1). They have come up with an average of over 1.5 goals per home game this season and 60% of their games at Pride Park have gone above the 2.5 goal line.

Each of their last four home games have gone above the mark so there is a trend ticking along there. The Rams have earned a clean sheet in 30% of their home fixtures this season. Four of their six home wins have been by a two-goal margin in this season’s Championship. In five of their ten home fixtures, Derby have been sitting level at the half time break. Derby are on a four-match scoring streak in the second tier but the one concern over them will be their defence. They are without a clean sheet in their last six at Pride Park. They jump up to third place with three points from this.

Derby v Nottingham Forest Head to Head

Derby have won their last three home games against Forest to nil
The Rams took four points from last season’s Championship meetings
Derby are unbeaten in five league games against Forest (W3 D2)
Forest have scored in just one of their last five trips to Pride Park

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Preston last weekend which halted some positive momentum they were on. Forest had gone seven matches undefeated in the Championship before that reverse. Out on the road in the second tier this season Nottingham Forest have produced a W3 D6 L1 record. Forest are unbeaten in their last seven games on their travels this season in the Championship so that’s some strong form. In their last away game in the league, they produced a thrilling 5-5 draw at Aston Villa.

Nottingham Forest have averaged just under two goals per game on their travels this season and they have only failed to score in 10% of their road games. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Forest have earned a clean sheet in 40% of their road games so they should be able to turn up and be a threat. A win draws them level on points with fifth-placed Derby if they can come up with three points in the game. Just twice this season have Forest been leading at half time in an away game and Forest have scored 68% of their away goals this season in the second half of games. They have scored each to their last six road games. Only Middlesbrough and Leeds have better defensive records than Forest currently

Leeds News and Form

Leeds claimed top spot in the league during midweek with a 2-0 win over Ipswich. They are top of the pile despite only winning two of their last six league games. Those around them at the top keep dropping points. Leeds are W4 D2 L1 for the season at Elland Road and the victory over Ipswich snapped a three-match winless streak at home they were on. We are looking at both teams to score in the fixture at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 5:50 pm) as Leeds have only failed to score in one league outing this term.

They have tallied twelve home goals so far, conceding just four times. But overall they have just two clean sheets in their last six and Forest bring a threat with them. Leeds have failed to win (D1 L1) in their two previous home games this season against sides currently sat inside the top half of the table which is where Forest are. Leeds have scored 67% of their goals (eight of twelve) in the second half of matches at home this season and they have been trailing at the break in just one fixture at Elland Road. Kemar Roofe is the 11/10 anytime goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 5:50 pm) and he was back on the scoresheet in midweek in their win over Ipswich.

Leeds v Nottingham Forest Head to Head

Leeds banked a W1 D1 record against Forest in Championship action last term
Forest are without a goal in their last three against Leeds
Leeds are W2 D2 L2 in their last six Championship games against Forest
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings
Only one of the last six league games have made it over 2.5 goals

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest earned a good 3-0 away win at Bolton in midweek and that was a good response by them after they had fallen to a loss against Norwich last weekend. They have a bit of form behind them do Forest who have only one loss in their last eight league games (W4 D3) in the Championship. They do carry a scoring threat because they have returned at least two goals in five of their last seven league fixtures.

Forest have scored in each of their last seven league games and 82% (9 of 11) of their away goals have been scored in the second half of fixtures this season. They netted at least two goals in each of their last three away games this season, but have only been ahead at half time once on their travels. Notts Forest are W2 D4 L1 on their travels in the second tier this season and are undefeated in their last four (W2 D2) away from the City Ground.

They have not conceded a goal in either of their last two away games, which were against Middlesbrough and Bolton. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 5:50 pm). Lewis Grabban is well worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market as he has scored four goals in Forest’s last three games and has a total of five in their last three away games. A win at Elland Road on the weekend would move them to within a point of Leeds.

Who will win – Leeds v Nottingham Forest Predictions

We are going to roll with an upset coming in this one and back Nottingham Forest to get the win. Through Lewis Grabban they have been scoring well on the road and could have enough to trouble Leeds in this one.

Nottingham Forest v Birmingham Championship Preview, 25th August 5.30pm

Nottingham Forest have remained unbeaten for the season but have only picked up the one win so far. So they will be hoping to improve their fortunes on the weekend at the City Ground as they play host to Birmingham. The Blues had an extra fixture in midweek so won’t be quite as fresh as they suffered a 1-0 defeat out at Bolton. Read our Nottingham Forest v Birmingham betting tips for more.

Nottingham Forest 8/11
Draw 14/5
Birmingham 7/2
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.)

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest have collected a W1 D3 record for the season but their lone win did happen on home soil. They collected a 1-0 win over Reading in their last home giving them four points from their two home fixtures this season. That is the only clean sheet for them this season in the Championship as well, but we are going to back them to blank the Blues. Nottingham Forest to win to nil at bet365 is at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.).

Forest have scored four of their five league goals this season from open play which is a good return from them and they have Hillel Soudani as their top scorer this term with two goals. Nottingham Forest produced a W10 D3 L10 record on home soil last season in the Championship but they are undefeated in their last five league games at the City Ground with a clean sheet in three of their last four there.

Birmingham News and Form

The Blues haven’t gotten a win on the board yet this season having gone D2 L2 in their first four games of the season. After a midweek 1-0 defeat out at Bolton, it leaves them on a three-match scoreless streak as well. They may have trouble in this quick turnaround in creating a great deal against a solid Forest side. Because of all that we are looking at the Nottingham Forest 1-0 correct score option at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.) for our Nottingham Forest v Birmingham betting tips.

The Blues do really look as if they are going to struggle for a big output again this season and last term in the Championship they won just three times away from St Andrews (D4 L16) averaging under a goal per game. After their losses at Middlesbrough and Bolton this season out on their travels, that is a five-match losing streak on the road that they are on.

Nottingham Forest v Birmingham Head to Head

Forest and Birmingham traded home wins in their Championship meetings last season. Three of the last four meetings between them have produced a home win (D1) so there is a bit of a trend there. Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings between the two of them at the City Ground. Nottingham Forest have lost just one of their last six home matches against the Blues (W3 D2 L1).

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v Birmingham Predictions

We have to stick with the home win cropping up in this one. Birmingham have looked light-weight in front of goal and Forest should be able to carve open enough chances to get three points. The 1-0 correct score for Forest appeals in our Nottingham Forest v Birmingham betting tips.

Nottingham Forest v West Brom Championship Preview, 7th August 7.45pm

Forest are squeezing in this extra game early in the season. It was originally scheduled for August 22nd, but that would clash with the cricket Test Match being hosted at Trent Bridge between India and England. So they get this fixture against West Brom earlier than planned. Forest bagged a 1-1 draw at Bristol City over the weekend, but West Brom’s start to life back in the Championship didn’t go well as they lost against Bolton. Read our Nottingham Forest v West Brom betting odds preview for more.

Notts Forest 11/8
West Brom 9/4
Draw 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 5th, 2018 at 11:02 p.m.)

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest tied up their game against Bristol City on the weekend early in the second half of the fixture, but couldn’t push on and get the three points, settling for one. Still, a decent enough start for themselves they will feel. More so if they can push on and get three points out of this one too. Forest wasn’t all that reliable on home soil last season with a W10 D3 L10 record and they did only just average over a goal per game. For our Nottingham Forest v West Brom betting odds, we are going to roll with under 2.5 goals for our Nottingham Forest v West Brom betting odds in this one at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 5th, 2018 at 11:02 p.m.).

They did have a pretty solid pre-season behind them and did pick up three clean sheets in four games, so that’s three in their last five played if you count the weekend’s game against Bristol City. Forest did make some really positive moves last month in the transfer market with Lewis Grabban, Costel Pantilimon, Jack Colback and Luke Steel coming into the club. It was Daryl Murphy who got their goal on the weekend and will be a popular option in the anytime goalscorer market for them.

West Brom News and Form

So West Brom got themselves off to a bit of stinker on the weekend. Ahead of the season, they were the outright favourites to win the Championship this term. They suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Bolton, conceding the hammer blow in the 89th minute to sink them. After the stresses of last season that was the last thing they needed. It does also put some pressure on them now going into this one as they need some points on the board without question. They were pretty solid through their pre-season as they were scoring well, but we were wondering pre-season if they had enough punch and quality up front to carry them through the season.

It was younger Harvey Lewis Barnes, who upstaged everyone else to get their goal on the weekend. There is a lot of experience in the West Brom squad having kept most of their best assets from last season. They just need to shake off the nerves and get something on the board. That’s not going to be easy and we are going to back both teams not to score actually at 5/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 5th, 2018 at 11:02 p.m.) considering the quick turnaround in games.

This is the first meeting between the two sides since the 2009/10 Champions season when they traded away wins. Actually five of the last six meetings have been won by the away game, but that is looking back a fairly long way with few recent meetings.

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v West Brom Predictions

We are going to back the home side a little bit cautiously here with 21/20 odds on a -0.25 Asian Handicap for our Nottingham Forest v West Brom betting odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 5th, 2018 at 11:02 p.m.). That means if they draw it is only a half loss. They will still be fresh and their energy can start to put some pressure on the visitors.

Nottingham Forest v Barnsley Prediction & Betting Tips – 24th April 2018

Championship Betting

Nottingham Forest v Barnsley Championship, 24th April 7.45pm

Forest could do nothing to prevent their continuing slumping form on the weekend as they took a hit against Cardiff. They play their game in hand in midweek that they are holding and even if they pick up three points they will be stuck in 17th place. Barnsley have to throw the kitchen sink at this one, a win takes them one point outside the relegation zone.

Nottingham Forest v Barnsley Betting Odds*

Barnsley 6/4, Nottingham Forest 7/4, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 3:42 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)

Nottingham Forest News and Form

After suffering a loss against Cardiff on the weekend Nottingham Forest have lost four of their last five league games now. They are down in 17th place and safe from relegation and nowhere near getting a mid-table finish. Their home form is W9 D2 L10 for the season and they have only lost one of their last five at the City Ground (W2 D2) so their form hasn’t been all that bad really. Both wins in that sequence were 2-1 successes and in the William Hill correct score market a Forest 2-1 result is at 9/1 odds* (betting odds taken on April 23rd, 2018 at 3:02 p.m.). Forest have produced a clean sheet in less than a third of their home games this season and as an attacking force have only managed 22 goals in their 21 home games. In total, they have failed to score in 43% of their home games. So there hasn’t been all that much to cheer about from them. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last five league games (home and away combined) and so even though they are taking on a relegation-threatened side, they are going to be vulnerable. They have scored 59% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches. Although they have been few and far between each of their last nine wins in the league Forest have scored at least two goals in each of them.

Barnsley News and Form

Barnsley have to leave everything on the pitch in this one. Three points just gets them out of the drop zone as they are sat third from bottom going into this one, two points behind Bolton. So there’s still hope of survival with three games to play for them. They lost 2-1 at Leeds over the weekend leaving them with a W1 D2 L3 record in their last six league outings. Away from home, they are on a four-match losing streak, but they did score in three of those four so both teams to score at William Hill for 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on April 23rd, 2018 at 3:02 p.m.) may be a decent proposition. The Tykes haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last ten league games now and away from home, they have conceded in each of their last five. Barnsley in total have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per game this season on the road. Surprisingly 64% of the goals that they have conceded away from home this season have been in the first half of matches. Of the twenty-one first-half away goals conceded, eleven of them have been between the 16th and 30th minute.

Nottingham Forest v Barnsley Head to Head

Barnsley collected a 2-1 home win over Forest back in August and that is three wins in the league four league meetings for the Tykes now. That includes last season’s trip to the City Ground when they won 1-0. Nottingham Forest have actually won just one of their last five home games against Barnsley in the Championship W1 D3 L1. Three of the last four at the City Ground between them have produced under 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v Barnsley Predictions

Without a doubt, Barnsley needs three points more than Forest do. But their away form isn’t there and even though Forest are in a mess at the moment, the Tykes may fail to get the win on the board. Settle on the midweek draw.
