      Leeds vs Nottingham Forest Predictions


      Nottingham Forest are 3 points better off than Leeds and look the more likely of the two to mount a play-off challenge but it’s still hard to see them bridging the 9 point gap between themselves and the top 6 over the remaining months of the season.

      They are on a good run of form and are unbeaten in 12 matches in the league yet despite that haven’t really managed to make the sort of progress that run that might indicate. That is because they have been drawing more than they’ve been winning and 7 of their last 10 have finished up all square.

      Leeds have also been going pretty well since the start of December and have overcome a mini-blip over the past week or so. They are into the 5th Round of the FA Cup after victory at Bolton last time out and have taken 4 points from their last 2 league games.

      However neither of these sides are scoring or conceding many goals. There have been under 2.5 goals in 8 of the last 9 matches involving Forest. Meanwhile only 3 matches all season at Elland Road have had over 2 goals in them so backing under 2.5 goals here at 8/13 looks a safe bet.

      It’s easy to find reasons why both teams will avoid defeat here but neither side really look like strong candidates for the win. This one really stands out as a likely draw not least because things finished all square when the pair met on Boxing Day at the City Ground.

      It was 1-1 on that occasion and a repeat would surprise nobody but it could just as easily end up 0-0 given Forest have the worst goalscoring record in the top half but have still managed 1 more goal than Leeds. Therefore consider taking a punt on a goalless draw at 15/2.
