Rotherham is caught in the relegation zone at the 22nd place on the table as it stands. The host will come into the game with just 29 points from 8 wins and 5 draws in their 29 attempts so far this season. They are on a three-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 1-0 loss on the road against Norwich last time out in their schedule.

Nottingham Forest is comfortably close to the mid-table position at the 17th spot. The away team has picked up 36 points from 9 wins and 9 draws in their 31 appearances in the championship until now. They will visit on the back of a 1-0 win at home against Blackburn and have only one loss in their recent five fixtures in the league.

Rotherham vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Only one of their recent four matches has ended in a draw.
  • The Forest has recorded four of the last five overall wins.

  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Nottingham.

Rotherham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Rotherham enjoys the ground advantage in the game and 20 goals from 14 attempts at home suffice their scoring form at Aesseal New York Stadium. However, they haven’t been successful in most of their home matches against Forest in the h2h history since 2001. Hence, the host cannot be backed for a clear win in the clash, despite them holding a good chance to score in ninety minutes.

Nottingham Forest is in a comfortable cruise picking up points at the mid-table. They have lost only one of their recent five outings and have picked up 10 of the last 15 points in the championship. Hence, the double chance favoring Nottingham Forest will probably be the best bet for the punters. Besides, the tip for BTTS will also come in handy for the goals area in the clash.
