Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Match preview

Nottingham Forest hosted Wigan to take all three points for the second time in a row with a 1-0     score on the board.

Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Prediction

Since Nottingham Forest has managed to share the spoils in their previous h2h visit to Blackburn, we can expect them to perform well at their home against the visitors. In the current league, Nottingham Forest has a four-point lead over the Rovers. Forest is at the fifth spot in the league, while Blackburn is at the 13th position in the campaign.

However, the host had a dip in form at home matches lately. They had three winless games in the previous five league home fixtures. Their problems are at scoring goals which is evident from their 11 goals scored in 11 home matches.

In the meantime, Rovers had a good run at home this season. Even so, they are struggling at their away fixtures. Evidently, they have only two wins in their last five clashes away from home. Also, Blackburn has won only 4 of their 12 away encounters in the campaign so far.

As such, we can expect the game to be an interesting match with both teams to find the back of the net. Also, Nottingham Forest has more chance of winning the game with their current league standings in the table. Since their recent h2h clashes have shown otherwise, it is safer to draw no bet on Nottingham in case of a rare possibility of a draw.
