Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday 29th September 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
Blackburn are in 12th position ahead of this game but with the Championship being so close they are only 4 points behind league leaders Leeds United.
On the plus side Blackburn have only lost 1 game but they have drawn too many which is stopping them from reaching the top 10 and top 5 of the league standings. Form is decent as they have gone their past 3 games undefeated and last weekend they beat Stoke 3-2 away from home. At Ewood Park they are unbeaten and yet have an average record because 3 of their 4 games has ended in draws.
Nottingham Forest are on the same points as Blackburn but because of goal difference they are 3 positions ahead of them. Forest’s recent form has been very good coming into this game with back to back wins and they have lost just 1 game in their past five encounters.
However they are yet to win away, although have drawn 3 of the last 4 games so these two teams really do have similar results.

Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction
Two teams are coming together who have similar qualities and are practically having the same season.
Our main bet will to see a draw at half time and we also feel that goals will come in the 2nd half.
Both of these clubs would just be happy to get another draw out of this game, but the home side should be more prodding up front and create more chances and that could be a big problem for Forest who haven’t won away yet.
