Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley
England Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 September
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: City Ground (Nottingham).

Nottingham Forest (Forest) lost their opening match at home but has been undefeated after that in the league. They are in a six-game unbeaten run in the championship in this season until now. Forest will be hosting their fourth home match against Barnsley.

Barnsley (Tykes) was promoted to the league from being runners up at the League One in the last season. They had an exactly opposite reaction of the host, by winning the opening match at home and not being able to find a win after that.

They are in a six-game winless streak in the league and the match will give them another nightmare or a chance at redemption based on their skills.

Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host does have a lead in games won from their 24 meetings in overall (W9 D7 L8).
  • Tykes have tasted victory only twice at this venue for the past twenty years.
  • Their prior meeting held here was won by the host with a clean sheet 3-0 victory.
  • Forest has recorded six wins and four draws from the twelve home matches since 1999.

Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley Prediction

Barnsley was able to defeat the host at their turf only two times in the entire twenty years span with almost a dozen clashes in it. Meanwhile, the Tykes had their previous win against Forest in this ground in 2017 Championship games and their last meeting was dominated by the home team. Moreover, in overall numbers, the host does hold more wins to their name.

Besides that, they have been unbeaten in the current championship games for the past six encounters, both at home and away. Also, they have lost only one home match in the league and were lossless in the last four overall home matches in major tournaments.

As such, it is clear as to the position of the home team and the promoted visitors in the upcoming match. The match will mostly favor the home team in the ninety minutes.
