Reason For Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City Predictions

  • Nottingham Forest have lost only two of their last nine home league games, winning on five occasions including against Leeds
  • Bristol City have lost six of their last nine league games
  • Both teams have scored in each of Bristol City’s last five league matches, with them losing two of those games 2-1

Forest can bolster their promotion hopes

Nottingham Forest and Bristol City are two of a number of playoff hopefuls in the Championship and it is the Tricky Trees who can enhance their promotion aspirations.

Forest have lost only two of their last nine home league games, winning on five occasions including toppling table toppers Leeds, and they couldn’t have done much more in their opening two games since the season’s resumption.

Forest picked up a good point against a well-drilled Sheffield Wednesday side in their opener and then made the most of their chances in a 3-1 home victory over Huddersfield, where top scorer Lewis Grabban took his tally to 19 with a brilliant brace.

With Grabban firing, Forest a force to be reckoned with and they should have too much for a an out-of-sorts Bristol City side faltering as the season comes to a close.

Robins could be out of their depth

Bristol City are losing ground on their playoff rivals with every game and may see their Championship winless run extended to eight games at The City Ground.

The Robins, who are nine points behind fourth-placed Forest, have lost six of their last nine league games including both matches since football’s resumption against Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday.

Prior to the enforced layoff, Lee Johnson’s side were beaten 3-1 at third-bottom Huddersfield and held to a 1-1 draw at Millwall and they are a team who have a tendency to blow hot and cold.

The Robins carry an attacking threat but with no clean sheet in nine and 18 goals conceded in that period, there are concerns defensively and Forest have the resources to capitalise.

Expect goals at both ends

Both teams have scored in each of Bristol City’s last five league contests and we predict more of the same at the City Ground.

The Robins have plenty of firepower in their ranks through the likes of Famara Diedhiou and Andres Wiemann but defensive flaws make them vulnerable. Johnson’s men have conceded 58 goals in 39 league games, only six Championship teams have been breached more frequently.

With Forest expected to prevail in what may prove an exciting contest, our prediction is a 2-1 home win. The Robins have lost two of their last five league games by that scoreline.
