Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

These two clubs are in 18th and 19th place level on points with two sides below them but neither will be sweating too much given the 9 point cushion between themselves and the relegation zone. Either club or perhaps both can guarantee their safety on Tuesday night and it will be a weight off their shoulders given the form both teams are in.

Nottingham Forest have taken just 5 points from their last 12 league games which is a fairly awful return and they’ve got worse not better since Dougie Freedman left the club. Their 0-0 draw at Rotherham at the weekend was a good result though given the form the Millers are in and they were denied a point by a last gasp winner in their last home game against Nottingham Forest so perhaps they have made slight improvements in the last week.

Paul Lambert will be looking forward to a full summer to try and put Blackburn back on the right track. They were beaten 2-0 at home by Huddersfield last time out and have just 1 point from their last 4 league games. They’ve won just 1 of their last 11 on the road so won’t travel with a great deal of confidence here.

There have been five 1-0 defeats within those last 11 away league games which clearly demonstrates their problems finding the net on the road and their solitary win was also by a 1-0 margin. Forest have lost 6 of their last 7 home games and their single win was a 1-0 victory over Preston. These two clubs have the worst goalscoring records outside the bottom 3 so we shouldn’t expect many goals here and backing Both Teams to Score – NO at 5/6 might be the way to go.
