Hull vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
Hull brought their two-match winless streak to a halt last week by pulling off an emphatic 3-0 victory over Birmingham at home. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter matchup, with three different players finding the back of the net for them.
As of now, the home side are sitting eleventh on the ladder, and are just one-point shy of Nottingham Forest.
Meanwhile, things have been going downhill for Nottingham Forest as of late. Their last clash on the road saw them at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard to Huddersfield. While at home, Sheffield Wednesday slotted four unanswered goals past them.
The guests are now without a win in their past five games on the trot and have amassed no more than two points from a possible fifteen in the process as well. To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, Hull have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their last three games here.
Taking into account that the hosts edged past Nottingham Forest in the reverse clash, two months back as well, the visitors have little or no chance of coming away with all three points this week.
However, the guests have been known to be adamant on the road this term. They have salvaged a point at the least in seven of their past twelve outings. Hence, to be on the safer side, back a Draw no bet in this one.
Furthermore, the visitors have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet. Impressively, they have found the back of the net seven times from their last three outings alone.
Meanwhile, Hull have had their scoring boots on at KCOM Stadium as well, and have consistently scored two goals or more in each of their past three matchups. Given that four of their previous six h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, expect a combined total of three goals or more on the scorecards this Thursday.
