      Nottingham Forest vs Leeds Predictions


      These are two of the division’s form teams. Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in 5 matches after their 2-1 victory over MK Dons last weekend. That also made it 4 consecutive wins at the City Ground following a barren spell where they’d won just 1 in 12 on home soil.

      Dougie Freedman appears to have got the belief back in this Nottingham Forest team and the same can be said of Steve Evans at Leeds United. The Yorkshire club have taken 10 points from their last 4 games with wins coming against Hull, Wolves and Preston to lift them up to 13th place and they are now only 5 points outside the play-offs and perhaps more importantly well clear of the relegation zone.

      So both teams are on a high and goals are likely. Both teams have scored in 4 of the last 6 matches involving Forest and also in 4 of their last 6 at home. They’ve only failed to score 3 times at home since January while Leeds have travelled quite well and they’ve scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their 11 away matches this season. Therefore odds of 11/10 for both teams to find the net here look good and there is no reason why both clubs won’t go looking for the win given they now have a good cushion on the bottom sides.

      This should be a lively game with a big crowd at the City Ground given Leeds are sure to bring a large contingent. Leeds have only taken 1 point from their last 3 trips to Nottingham though and they weren’t brilliant in their last match when they were scrappy 1-0 winners against a Preston side that had been reduced to 10 men in the 1st half.

      Home advantage could just settle this and Nottingham Forest who are enjoying life in front of their own fans again perhaps also have a little more quality in their side. Therefore consider backing a 2-1 home win at 8/1.
