Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham have lost three of their last seven games and two of their last five at Craven Cottage
  • Nottingham Forest have won eight of their last ten matches in all competitions.
  • Fulham’s average goal output has decreased from 2.54 (first 35 games) to 1.2 (last eight games).

Forest have form to edge top tussle

The two best teams in the Championship right now clash at Craven Cottage on Tuesday with more at stake than looked likely a few weeks ago as Nottingham Forest attempt to knock Bournemouth out of the second automatic spot. Forest have taken nine more points than the Cherries over each club’s last 32 games and if the Reds had made a better start to the campaign they would surely have been Fulham’s closest challenger.

The City Ground side now realistically need just a point from their remaining four games to ensure a play-off spot but, more intriguingly, four straight victories from here – including in the key game at the Vitality Stadium – could be enough to take them up without a trip to Wembley.

Steve Cooper’s side can certainly win this clash if they are at their very best and consistency has not been a problem for a team that has won eight of their last ten games.

Fulham too short given recent goals drop-off

Fulham are way too short at 3/4 to attract our money. The Cottagers have lost three of their last seven league games and two of their last five at home, which suggests to us they should be treated with caution. Fulham’s class cannot be questioned, but they were on course for 100 points and a record-breaking second-tier goal tally a few weeks ago and neither of those objectives appear possible now.

Motivation is likely to be greater in the away camp and with Forest posting four clean sheets in their last five, there’s even a chance Fulham could be shut out at home for just the third time this season. Marco Silva’s men have scored ten goals in their last eight games, having rattled in 38 in their previous 12.

Our view here is that Forest are way too big to ignore at almost 4/1 on some books and should be backed to win. A 2-1 scoreline is a marginal preference to 1-0 when Forest’s watertight defence is weighed up against Fulham’s fearsome attack.
