Nottingham Forest vs Fulham
Date: 26th September 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The City Ground.
Fulham will have a nice opportunity to get back to the winning ways in mid-week’s fixture since they travel to The City Ground to tackle Nottingham Forest in the 10th round of Championship on Tuesday evening.
The hosts are on a poor run of form (particularly at the back) after losing three on the bounce having allowed nine goals during the process.
To be fair, five of them came at Stamford Bridge when the Reds suffered a disaster in the League Cup encounter with Chelsea.
Mark Warburton’s Championship ambitions have also suffered a serious blow after the team lost four of their last five league outings.
The Lilywhites reached the promotional playoffs in the last term, but Slavisa Jokanovic has huge struggles to keep the consistency in the new season as Fulham have been playing hot and cold in the opening nine rounds of the competition.
The visitors suffered an unexpected away loss to Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium before sharing the spoils with the recent Premier League outfit Middlesbrough on Saturday at their Craven Cottage (1-1).
Nottingham Forest vs Fulham: Head to head
If we are to judge by the history of the head to head encounters between the two teams, goal are guaranteed on Tuesday evening at The City Ground.
Six of previous seven H2H meetings saw the BTTS option “come in”, and four or more goals have been seen in five of last seven matches between Nottingham and Fulham.
Nottingham Forest vs Fulham: Prediction
Since the hosts have been poor at the back recently, and since Fulham have a decent attacking lineup, we have to consider the BTTS pick as the most appropriate one here.
Braver tipsters can try with Fulham to win & BTTS at 3/1.
