Nottingham Forest vs Middlesbrough Prediction

Nottingham Forest failed to make a swift return to winning ways in their most recent matchup on the road, after Millwall did just enough to post a 2-2 scorecard. The hosts are now without a taste of success in their last two clashes and have just two wins to boast of from their previous five as well.

Nevertheless, with thirty-three points to their name, the home side are still dwelling in the top four at the moment.

On the other hand, Middlesbrough picked up their second win in three games, by pulling off a 1-0 victory over Charlton at home. Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have been faring very poorly in their campaign overall.

The guests have come out on top just twice in their last ten fixtures in the Championship. To pile on even more misery, Middlesbrough are one of the only three teams left to pick up a win away from home.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been admitting back to back defeats in their last two visits here. As such, Nottingham Forest are likely to be too hot to handle for the guests in this one.

Furthermore, disappointingly, Middlesbrough have been tame in the final third. They have failed to find the back of the net in five of their last nine outings, and have added no more than eight goals to their tally so far.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest have kept a clean sheet in three of their past five fixtures here. Taking into account that five of their last six clashes at this venue have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on Nottingham Forest to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
