Nottingham Forest vs Preston Predictions

Preston are in with an outside chance of making the play-offs and will certainly be targeting 3 points here with Forest not in good form. The Lancashire club have taken 1 point from their last 2 matches but they were tough games and they only lost 2-1 at Cardiff before restricting an impressive Brighton side to a 0-0 draw at the weekend. Prior to that they’d won 4 games on the spin and can apply a little bit of pressure on the sides above them with another win here.

Nottingham Forest at one point looked like they could launch a late charge for a play-off place but that dream has faded now after a run of 4 straight defeats in the league. They only scored 1 goal in that run and their two home defeats were particularly concerning given they were both against sides in the bottom 8 currently in the shape of Bristol City and Huddersfield.

Dougie Freedman’s side seem to be a really streaky outfit and they’d gone 13 league games without defeat prior to those recent 4 matches. It was a similar tale last season when they had long good runs either side of a long bad run and this has the makings of another nightmare spell for the men from the City Ground. Preston have been quite consistent all season, certainly in their approach and they are good at edging games by narrow margins which will be of concern to the hosts who have lost their last 3 by a single goal and have a poor goalscoring record.

Preston don’t score many either but are looking the stronger side right now and backing Preston to win 1-0 at 7/1 looks a smart move here.
