Nottingham Forest vs Bradford
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 11 August 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET,
Venue: City Ground (Nottingham).

After a disappointing term in the Championship, Nottingham Forest will try their luck in the England Carabao Cup 2021/22 season. The Tricky Trees will have their best shot at winning a berth to the next round as they will host a League Two contingent, Bradford, on Wednesday at City Ground.

The host has been winless in their last seven matches in the Championship with four draws in it. The Tricky Trees has started the new edition of the same campaign with a defeat this term. They will return home on the back of that 2-1 loss on the road against Coventry last time out in their schedule.

On the other hand, Bradford is on one of their worst runs in their records recently. The away team has won none of their last eight fixtures in League Two. They will visit on the back of a goalless draw on the road with Exeter in the opening match of LT this season.
