Nottingham Forest vs Millwall Match Preview
Forest secured a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, against Middlesbrough. It was their fourth unbeaten game in a row, and was in line with their aim to make it into the playoffs.
As of now, Nottingham are placed fourth in the table, and have a cushion of six points to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Still, the end of the season is approaching, and teams will just raise their form hereon. It would be wise for Nottingham, if they posted as many points as they could.
In the meantime, Millwall were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Bristol City. Also, the sole goal for the hosts were scored by Bristol (own goal).
The result once again threw light to the drop in form of Millwall. With just ten more match-days remaining for the season to end, playoff hopes of Millwall are slowly slipping away.
Nottingham Forest vs Millwall Prediction
Forest are placed fourth in the table, and are in a favorable spot to get into the playoffs. On top of that, they are at home, and are taking on Millwall, who were winless in eight of their previous nine games.
On the road, Millwall were winless in five of their past six trips, and remained so in 14 of their prior 18 away fixtures. On the other hand, Nottingham have lost just twice in overall games since December, and just once at home since mid-December.
In addition, home teams have had the upper hand in recent h2h clashes, and it’s been five years since Millwall have recorded a win at this stadium.
Taking into account these observations, it’s deduced that Nottingham Forest will deliver a dominating performance this Friday at the City Ground.
