Nottingham Forest vs Bristol Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Nottingham Forest vs Bristol
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: City Ground.

Nottingham are in stupendous form, and especially so at home. They are scoring goals at an impressive rate, and they are going after a top-six finish, in order to qualify for the playoffs.

As of now, they are placed tenth in the table, and need a surplus of just five points to break into the top-most tier.

It needs to be mentioned that they have built quite some momentum at home in the past few months. They have been on a pretty consistent streak at this stadium since November, and ever since the turn of new year, they have been simply unstoppable at this ground.

Meanwhile, Bristol are going through a poor streak of results, and particularly so on the road. They are conceding goals in huge numbers, and most importantly, they have an inferior h2h record at this venue over the past seasons.

For the reasons, expect a win for Nottingham this Saturday at the City Ground.
