Ipswich vs Nottingham Forest Predictions & Match Preview

Ipswich vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Portman Road (Ipswich).

Make no mistake about Forest’s form, they are on a terrible run of games right now. They may be just three points away from the post-season mix, but the team is struggling and especially on the road. With nine more rounds remaining in the competition, any chance to turn around their season is fast diminishing, and by the looks of it, this match-day just might be it.

The reason? Ipswich is the last-placed team in the table, and obviously is the worst of the lot. They are 13 points off safety, while they themselves have managed just a total of 23. They are surely on the path to get relegated, and might not have much will left to fight on.

Ipswich vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

First things first, either is not going to have an easy weekend. Both squads are going through terrible phases in the season, and it’s no secret that Ipswich has got it the worst. They are locked in for relegation, and even their most loyal fans have given up on scripting a comeback. The players can’t wait to end this season and start life in League One.

Despite the abysmal form Forest is in, the peculiar situation Ipswich is in seems their only saving grace. Even then, Nottingham will have to play with their lives on the line, to overcome this bad patch they are in.

Nottingham has scored just a total of five goals combined in their last eight games on the road. They are tipped to win this tie, but it will be a very narrow win. Moreover, six of their last ten visits to this venue had them scoring exactly one goal.

So, as things stand, the most probable outcome is a 0-1 tough win for the guests.
