Stoke City has been unbeaten in their last four matches in the campaign. The host has recorded three draws in those four fixtures, showing a shaky defense. Their previous encounter was on the road ad they shared the spoils in a goalless encounter with Coventry.

Nottingham Forest has also kept an unbeaten streak in the last three fixtures. But the away team has been dropping points with just one win in their recent five clashes. They will visit on the back of a goalless draw at home with Birmingham in the last league encounter.

Stoke City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Stoke City is on an unbeaten run in the championship for the past four clashes and also enjoys the ground advantage in the Tuesday fixture at Bet365 Stadium. The host has lost only three of their last ten home matches in their schedule.

Nottingham Forest is in a troubled form in the league as it stands. The visitor will come into the game, trailing the host by 16 points on the table. Besides, their recent two encounters have resulted in consecutive draws suggesting a shaky defense in the middle for the Forest.

We can expect the teams to come together and produce a couple of goals in the game. The host has scored 25 goals in 21 appearances while Forest has slotted in just 14 goals in the same period. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy from the goals department to yield decent returns.

With their ground advantage and current form in the campaign, the host is likely to create more chances in the fixture. The draw no bet over Stoke City will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
