Nottingham Forest vs QPR Prediction
Forest has an enviable record in h2h matches against QPR at this venue. In their head-to-head history, dating back to 1999, Nottingham is unbeaten at the City Ground. They have kept clean sheets in six of the last seven h2h games at this venue. Nottingham will be keen to extend that record and make it seven out of last eight.
The home team is in an uncertain situation right now. They miss the cut for the playoffs by just one point and here on each point is costly. They will take advantage of this home-game and try their best to win. As is always in the case of ties between these sides, Nottingham will try to secure an early lead and will see out the match with the help of their defense.
The second half won’t see many goals owing to the situation Nottingham is in, and their aversion to taking risks late into the game, especially this season.
