Venue: City Ground (Nottingham).

It’s still early days but the problem with Nottingham Forest this season is that they are drawing too many games. Their weekend 0-0 result with Swansea was their 5th of the season from 7 matches.

These run of draws has left Forest in 15th place on 8 points although a win could move them at least 4 places depending on other results. At the City Ground Forest are unbeaten with 1 win and 2 draws and manager Aitor Karanka has worked with his forwards this week on trying to get the team to score more crucial goals and wrap up wins.

Sheffield Wednesday are in 9th place and have 3 more points than Forest. Form has been very good where they have gone their last 4 matches without defeat. Although a 3 game winning run was stopped last weekend when they drew with Stoke with that game ending 2-2.

But the clubs away form is not as good where they have won just 33% of their games. Although they did win their last away game against Reading with a 2-1 victory.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head to Head

  • Sheffield Wednesday have won the last 4 games at the City Ground.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday are in good form and love coming to this ground but Forest need to start picking up points and at best they have been able to see out games without losing. That is why we will concentrate on the goals market and our main bet will be to see 3 goals or over.

Keep an eye on Forest player Matthew Cash who has bagged a couple of goals already for this team this season and is an outstanding price to score in this game, his value is worth a small stake.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday: Bet Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals at 1/1 (2.00)
  • Anytime goal scorer: Matthew Cash (Nottingham Forest) at 4.00 (3/1).
