Tip Reasoning

  • Nottingham Forest have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten home league games.
  • Birmingham City have conceded at least twice in seven of their last ten away league contests.
  • Brennan Johnson has scored seven goals in his last nine Championship appearances.

Forest full of confidence and goals

Nottingham Forest are full of confidence and full of goals right now as they prepare to take on a Birmingham City side that have shipped far too many in the second half of their dismal campaign.

Forest are surging towards the top three and may feel they could sneak into the automatic promotion spots if Bournemouth come unstuck in the next few weeks. Saturday’s visit of the Blues is an opportunity to put further pressure on the other teams in the top six and they should oblige home backers at odds of around 8/13.

Greater odds are available on Steve Cooper’s Reds to register two or more goals – which looks like an angle worth pursuing on recent evidence. Forest have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten home league games with Brennan Johnson leading the way by netting seven times in his last nine Championship appearances.

Johnson can feast on leaky Blues defence

The young striker is outperforming his xG for the season and could feast on the opportunities likely to come his way against Birmingham’s bumbling backline. Lee Bowyer’s side have conceded at least twice in seven of their last ten away league contests, during which time a total of 24 goals have been put past them.

It suggests the hosts will be able to strike on multiple occasions this Saturday with over 2.5 Forest goals clearly possible too. Birmingham have doubled up in four of their last seven away trips, but not against opponents as tough as this, so there is a chance Forest will be pushed into adding to their tally.

The correct score forecast that best fits these two teams right now is a 3-1 Forest success with the hosts landing two-goal winning margins in three of their last four at the City Ground.
