Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Bristol City are on a four-match unbeaten streak in the Championship at the moment despite being on the road for the last two game weeks. Lee Johnson’s men saw off Cardiff with a 1-0 scorecard in their most recent outing, prior to which they salvaged no more than a point against Barnsley in a 2-2 draw.

On the other hand, Nottingham Forest are on a positive run of their own. The away side have been recording back to back wins in their previous two Championship games, the last of which was a 1-0 victory over Derby at home.

Be that as it may, the visitors have been hit by a decline in form on the road and have come out on top just once in their past three outings. To make matters worse for the Nottingham Forest faithful, the away side have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last seven visits here.

Moreover, Bristol City’s only defeat on home soil this season was at the hands of the in-form Leeds. As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts in this one. However, the home team have been forced to share the spoils in three of their past five games here.

Taking into account that their last h2h clash at Ashton Gate Stadium also ended in a tie, the safest punt in this one is sizing up to be a double chance backing Bristol City.

Furthermore, the hosts have been found napping in their own defensive third, and are without a clean sheet in their last two clashes at home. With all of their previous three h2h matchups here also witnessing goals down either end, expect both teams to have their scoring boots on in this one.
