Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 22nd October 2016,
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: City Ground, West Bridgford, Nottingham
Nottingham Forest really needs to find a batch of wins as they are getting sucked into the bottom half of the Championship. From their opening 13 games they have won 4 and their recent form is poor with just 1 win in their last five matches.
At home Forest their record reads better where they have lost just 1 game and that was to a good side like Norwich City.
The bad news for Forest was hearing the news that Nicklaus Bendtner former Arsenal striker will be out injured for six weeks.
Cardiff are another struggling team in 22nd place but the league is so close that even though they find themselves in the relegation zone, two wins could spearhead them to as high as 12th.
Cardiff have been extremely poor all season away from home where they have won just 1 game and that was a scrappy affair against bottom of the table Rotherham.
