      Tip Reasoning

      Only Preston have a worse goalscoring record than Nottingham Forest this season in the Championship and there has been nothing about their recent performances that have suggested they are getting closer to resolving those attacking issues.

      They’ve failed to score in their last two matches, a 1-0 defeat at home to Hull prior to a 2-0 loss at struggling Bristol City on Friday night. Up against a Burnley side that typically keeps things pretty tight at the back it is hard to see them really creating much and it could be another frustrating night for the Forest faithful.

      Burnley are 5th in the table and come into the match on the back of 2 wins but they’ve not been completely dominating games and it is 17 months since they won a match by more than 2 goals.

      This is likely to be a pretty close affair and the bookies are having a hard time splitting them. One moment of brilliance or a mistake could settle it and Nottingham Forest will know they can’t really afford to give Burnley a goal head start so it could be quite a cautious affair.

      Dougie Freedman will want a reaction from an abject display in Bristol last week and he will know that Burnley aren’t the most creative of sides. A point probably wouldn’t be a disaster for either boss here and that can often lead to defensive football and certainly there is likely to be under 2.5 goals in this one and you can back that to be the case at 3/4.

      Of the two sides, though you have to feel Burnley are the more capable of breaking the deadlock. They’ve made quite a strong start to the season and with Andre Gray in red-hot form with 3 goals in his last 2 matches you sense that having a confident clinical finisher to rely on could be the difference in a game that may be lacking much in the way of clear-cut chances.

      Therefore consider Burnley to nick this 1-0 at odds of 7/1.
