Bristol City v Nottingham Forest
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 2nd October 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Ashton Gate, Bristol.
Two teams in different phase of form, Bristol City and Nottingham Forest will face each other at Ashton gates on Saturday evening.
Bristol City continued their good form on Tuesday, they defeated Leeds United 1-0 at home to keep them on the 6th position. M. Pack’s 59th minute goal was the only goal of the game as Bristol City claimed all 3 points. Bristol City have now kept clean sheets in 2 successive games and are ready to keep the good form flowing.
Nottingham Forest have had a twist in form recently, they have gone winless in recent weeks. Nottingham lost 2-1 to Sheffield Wednesday last week, they later drew 1-1 against Fulham in the midweek at City ground. Nicklas Bendtner scored the first goal of the game which was also his first goal for the club, T. Cairney later pulled one back for Fulham as the game ended 1-1. Nottingham now have to keep searching for a win this week to halt their poor form.
