Reason For Nottingham Forest vs Swansea City Predictions

  • Forest haven’t lost back to back home games since December 2018
  • The visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in five games
  • Swansea have scored in their last four away trips

Both sides look to playoffs

Nottingham Forest have failed to win in three, leaving their automatic promotion hopes gone. They are out to book their top-six place and make another promotion push, but this week they come up against a Swansea side in seventh who have hopes of landing a top-six finish of their own. Can they follow up Fulham and claim a win at the City Ground?

Nottingham Forest haven’t lost back to back home Championship matches since December 2018, losing 1-0 to both Preston and QPR. Their playoff place can be confirmed with three points in this one, with history going in the hosts’ favour. Swansea are looking to win consecutive away league matches for only the second time in the last three seasons, also doing so in August 2019.

Swans limping but in contention

A narrow 1-0 loss to Leeds at the weekend hasn’t put Swansea out of the fight for sixth, but they are up against it in their chase of Welsh rivals Cardiff. The Swans have won just twice in their last five games, but they have claimed important victories over Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham of late. However, they conceded in both of those wins and are likely to do the same this week.

The visitors are dealing with injuries to centre-half duo Joe Rodon and Ben Wilmot. That’s left their three-man defence weakened, with the Welsh side conceding in each of their last five games. They could be punished at the back once again, especially with Forest looking sharp at the top-end of the pitch. Our predictions back a difficult night for their makeshift defence.

More goals at the City Ground

The hosts have been strong in front of goal this season, with Lewis Grabban leading the way. The clinical forward has scored 20 Championship goals this season – he has only netted more league goals in one previous season, scoring 22 in 2013/14 for Bournemouth. He could yet beat that return, especially given Swansea’s issues at the back here. However, the Welsh side have scored in each of their last four away games.

Defending hasn’t come easy for Forest since they returned. The hosts have conceded crucial goals in all but one of their matches since the restart. With Swansea’s attacking style paying off on the road, we see them scoring here. However, Forest have enough threat going forward with Grabban in the side. As a result, both teams to score is our first pick, while we’re backing another 1-1 draw for Forest in our correct score prediction.
