Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts have lost just four of their 22 games since Steve Cooper took charge, back in September.
  • Nottingham Forest can tighten their grip on a place in the top six with a victory here.
  • Stoke have failed to win in nine of their 14 away league matches this season.

Steve Coopers magic formula

It’s been an exceptional first five months for Steve Cooper. The hosts were in the relegation zone when he took charge and now find themselves firmly in the top six and have even knocked current FA Cup holders Leicester out of the prestigious domestic competition. They come into this one off the back of an impressive 2-0 victory away to Blackburn Rovers during the week and it was a game where they could’ve scored four or five. They’ve kept five clean sheets across their last 10 home games, winning seven in that time, and they’ll be confident of continuing their splendid form.

It’s a testament to how competitive the Championship is as visitors Stoke City sit just four points behind Nottingham Forest and have a game in hand but sit five places lower in the table. The Potters also claimed victory during the week as they put Swansea City to the sword at home but they need to discover some consistency if they want to challenge for the playoff places having won just three of their last ten league fixtures.

Hosts to secure another victory

It’s hard to look past Steve Cooper and his Nottingham Forest outfit. They’ve turned the City Ground into a fortress and are rarely losing games. We think the hosts are an excellent price to win this one.
