Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Prediction

Both teams are in shambles at the moment, and also looks to be of equal strength. This will make the game tough for both sides, however Nottingham will concentrate more on their defense if they want to get something out of this fixture.

Nottingham have hardly scored in the past weeks which is the opposite for their visitors. Bristol have been outscored in most of their recent games, but we don’t see that happening here. We expect a win from the visitors and may be few goals from the game.
