Kyle Naughton and Olliver McBurnie bagged goals to complete the Swans’ comeback in the English capital. The Scottish forward thus continued to shine netting his fourth goal of the season. Can he inspire another success for the seventh-placed outfit against direct promotional rivals here?

The Reds are still considered promotional challenges in spite of a rather slow start to the campaign. The team invested a lot of Arabian money this summer only to see four draws in opening six games of the season. Aitor Karanka and lads just have to do better. Will the trip to Wales be the turning point of this stage of the season?

Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head

  • Teams have three wins, draws and defeats apiece ahead of the landmark 10th H2H match at Liberty Stadium.
  • Overall, Nottingham lead the head to head tie by two wins after 19 meetings with the Swans.
  • Their previous league encounter took place in 2011 when they also battled it out in the second division.
  • Both teams found the back of the net in four of last five head to head affairs.

Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Karanka’s main woes are considered with the lack of meticulousness in his team’s defensive line. The Reds just don’t seem capable of keeping it quiet there as they shipped two or more goals in all of last three league ties.

The poor run includes the 2-1 loss to Brentford away at Griffin Park before the international break. This will be the music to the ears of Oliver McBurnie who is 2.40 to find the back of the net anytime on the occasion.

Since seven of eight games Nottingham played in all competitions this season brought goals at both ends, we just have to try with this scenario at the 1.72 odds.

Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Bet Tips

  • Both teams to Score @ 1.72 (8/11)
  • Oliver McBurnie to score anytime @ 2.40 (7/5).
