Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).
Nottingham Forest and Hull City are level on points coming into super important promotional six-pointer on Saturday afternoon at The City Ground. Both teams are within a four-point distance from the promotional play-offs and a win here might be crucial for their ambitions of playing post-season football in May.
The Reds were on a four-game unbeaten run before an unexpected 2-0 loss away at Stoke City last weekend. They generally found goals hard to come by in recent weeks having bagged just one in past three affairs in Championship.
Martin O’Neill’s men kept two clean sheets in last three matches, though. Can they keep things tight at the aback against a strong attacking line-up of Hull City here?
Nottingham Forest vs Hull City: Head-to-head

Nottingham Forest vs Hull City: Prediction
The Tigers returned to the battle for the top-six finish with back-to-back home wins over Millwall and Birmingham City. The head coach Nigel Adkins can be thrilled with the improvements in his side’s defensive displays as Hull City allowed just one goal in past two league fixtures.
Jarrod Bowen will be the man to look after here as his phenomenal display guided the team to a super important 2-0 win over in-form Birmingham City seven days ago. The Tigers did have troubles to keep things tight at the back on travels this season (32 goals allowed in 17 matches). The most recent pair of wins did show massive signs of improvements of this field, but can the visitors resist a dangerous attacking line of Nottingham’s here?
The draw looks to the most likable of three outcomes and we will go for it at the odds of 3.30 as the main betting option.
