Anything besides convincing performance and victory against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night would be marked as a failure for Forrest. They are big favorites here priced at 1.55 odds.
Charlton Athletic have been sitting on the edge of the table, 21st position to be precise, just one above the relegation line.
Needless to say, they are one of the worst performing teams on the road, having lost nine out of 15 matches, while winning only two. Poor defending is the key issue here, allowing almost two goals per game.
Unlike other top six contenders, Nottingham Forest are playing equally good in front of their fans and on the road.
When it comes to the most recent form, Sabri Lamouchi’s squad defeated Luton Town, Brentford and Leeds United. The only defeat happened on the road against Birmingham.
