English League Championship
Date: Monday, 2nd April 2018
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).

Nottingham has drifted away to the second part of the table following the good early season. The team looks safe from relegation and can hardly achieve anything more than 15th place this season.

Nottingham continued to lose points in their previous game. Forest failed to score once again and this time conceded twice from their hosts Millwall. The hosts opened the score literally with the first whistle. Second goal followed in the first half. Nottingham tried to outdo the damage but could not find a way to their opponents net.

It was just a matter of time for Barnsley to drop into the relegation zone. The team is in a very poor run and can hardly recover. The Tykes are sitting 22nd in the table 2 points away from Birmingham. They need to act quickly as it will be difficult to compensate any difference with just 7 games left to play.

Barnsley faced out of form Bristol at home. The team fought bravely and was touching the 3 points but in the end the game finished as a draw. Barnsley went ahead twice this game but failed to hold onto their lead conceding a stoppage time equalizer for 2-2.
