Reason For Blackburn Rovers vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Forest have lost their first four Championship games this term, failing to score in three.
  • The visitors are now winless in 11 matches across all competitions.
  • Blackburn have claimed seven points and kept clean sheets in each of their last three league games.

Many predicted a collapse at Nottingham Forest after they threw away a Play-off place in extraordinary circumstances on the final day of last season, and that’s certainly been the case so far this term.

The Reds were woeful in losing their first four league matches and Sabri Lamouchi was inevitably dismissed after failing to lift his dilapidated squad from the floor. Former Brighton and Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has stepped in and Forest supporters will be hoping that the 61-year-old can spark an immediate response as their side travel to face Blackburn this weekend.

Hughton has a lot on his plate though. Forest have lost key personnel over the last few weeks and appear desperately short on quality. They have failed to score in three of their four defeats and seemingly pose little danger to a Blackburn side who have kept clean sheets in their last three league matches.

Two of those outings ended in emphatic success for Tony Mowbray’s side (5-0 vs Wycombe Wanderers, 0-4 vs Derby County) and a 0-0 stalemate against Cardiff City last time out consolidated a decent opening to the season for the Lancashire outfit, who sit sixth in the early standings.

On all current form, there only looks to be one winner in this Saturday’s contest and we’re forecasting a 2-0 victory for the hosts.
