Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City Match Preview and Predictions

Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).

Bristol City were genuine contenders for the direct promotion to the elite at certain point of the season, but their form suddenly saw a huge stumbling block they never managed to recover from. The Robins can still reach the playoffs in theory, but it’s far from likable scenario given that the sixth-placed Derby County are five points away with just two games left to play.

The next stop for Lee Johnson’s men are Nottingham Forest who finally managed to end a negative run of their won and snatch a three-pointer on Tuesday, dispatching Barnsley 3-0 at The City Ground. The Reds thus made it two wins on the bounce in front of the home crowed and they have a nice chance to make it three against the struggling opposition on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Head-to-head

Six of last seven head to head games saw home teams snatching the spoils.

Nottingham Forest were much more successful in matches at The City Ground where they picked up 9 wins and suffered only 33 losses on 18 occasions.

Three of last four H2H games ended in a 2-1 scoreline.

The Robins took a win by this scoreline when the two sides met in this term of the Championship at Ashton Gate.

Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Prediction

Bristol City were just incapable of keeping things tight at the back in the last month or so, which was actually the main reason for the huge drop in form compared to the promising start of the season. They shipped as many as seven in last two league ties, including the crazy 5-5 draw with Hull City last weekend at Ashton Gate.

Knowing that the Reds bagged five in back-to-back home wins over Ipswich Town and Barnsley, we fancy the 2.10 odds offered for Aitor Karanka’s side to notch two or more goals here. Also, since both teams tended to dominate this match-up in the most recent history, we feel good about the home win at the sky-high 2.62 odds.
