Nottingham are probably satisfied with the draw at Bristol in their opening game. The team finished a number of places behind The Robbins last season and getting a point at Ashton Gate is a good enough achievement.

Forest had a decent home record last season with some slight exceptions. We can’t say that this team excels in certain area but overall they are jack of all trades.

They can defend decently well and score a good amount of goals but nothing spectacular at both ends. Still they are heavily dependent on the performance of Michael Dawson who returned to the team in the summer and won 8 areal duels against Bristol.

WBA will want to forget their welcoming game into the EFL Championship. The team not just failed to win at home against relegation contenders Bolton but also managed to lose the game in the end.

The loss probably was something like an alarm clock for the team. They have to wake up and realize that despite coming from the English top tier it will be difficult to return there this year. The team needs more sharpness up front and stability at the back. Still they got the quality they need and will blend their team eventually.

Nottingham Forest vs West Brom: Head-to-head

  • 7 out of 8 games between the sides at The City Ground saw less than 2.5 goals
  • WBA scored less than 1 goal on average on the road last season.

Nottingham Forest vs West Brom Predictions

WBA got stunned last game and will need to bounce back. Getting a second disappointing result will put a lot of pressure on the team. Nottingham are a sturdy side but it is doubtful that they have the quality to win this game. WBA should be able to at least avoid defeat in a game which shouldn’t offer much in terms of goals.

Nottingham Forest vs West Brom Betting Tips

WBA double chance at 5/8 (1.63)

Under 2.5 goals at 2/3 (1.67).
