Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest
England League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 18th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn.
Blackburn remain in the relegation zone after being held to a goal-less draw by Ipswich in their weekend fixture. The Rovers had won in all of the previous 5 matches at Ewood Park against Ipswich and this one had gone against the expectations. The draw further dropped them down by 1 place in the league table and they are currently at the 23rd position, with Rotherham United being the only side behind them.
While Nottingham Forest put an end to their 6 match win-less run with a 3-1 win against a strong Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon. The match witnessed some end-to-end attacking stuff and teams were even in the number of scoring chances created. Nottingham turned out to be the efficient team in front of goal and that was reflected in the final score-line. Coming into the matchday 13, Forest have a mountain to climb as they are dwelling deep in the bottom half of the table.

Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction
If there is a one-word to describe these two side’s performance this season that is inconsistency. At the same time, Nottingham Forest have done a neat job at their home ground and are took 4 wins and a draw from their 6 games so far. While playing away they are without a win in 6 matches, but managed to score at least once in the last 4.
While Blackburn’s form playing anywhere is nothing to write about and tend to struggle to find goals when it matters. They are also one of the worst defensive sides in the league. As a result the away side look good to edge something out of this fixture and they are the ones in better shape and confidence.
