Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United Predictions

  • Nottingham Forest won the first leg 2-1 and were arguably unlucky not to win by a bigger margin.
  • Forest have won each of their last four home games and have won their last eight against Championship opposition at the City Ground.
  • Sheffield United have just one win in their last seven away.
  • Forest score on average 1.9 goals-per-game at home.

Forest and Blades battle for Wembley date

Nottingham Forest hold a slender 2-1 lead over Sheffield United ahead of the second leg of their Championship play-off final on Tuesday.

Forest opened up a 2-0 lead but Sander Berge’s injury time effort means the Blades are still in this tie – although they need to win at the City Ground if they are to book a trip to Wembley.

Forest strong at home

The Blades were outplayed for the majority of the first meeting at Bramall Lane and need a much-improved performance if they are to stand any chance of a comeback.

Given just how dominant Forest were at times in that first leg and their impressive record at the City Ground, a home wins stands out as the main bet for this fixture.

Forest have won each of their last four home games, scoring 13 goals and conceding just one, and the only team to beat them in Nottingham since the turn of the year are Liverpool in an FA Cup tie.

The Blades have won just one of their last seven away, losing three of those, and Forest can finish this tie off with a victory.

Hosts can keep a clean sheet

United’s confidence evaporated in the first leg after Jack Colback’s opener after 10 minutes but Berge’s late strike has given them something to cling on to. I expect the visitors to have a real go on Tuesday, but Forest have a mean defensive record and can pick them off on the break.

Steve Cooper’s men have three clean sheets in their last four home games and the Blades have failed to score in four of their last seven away. A 2-0 win for the home side appeals in the correct score market as Forest averaged 1.9 goals-per-game at home in the regular season and United have only conceded more than twice in two of their last 15 away games.
