Nottingham Forest vs Swansea City Predictions

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in five of Forest’s last six games.
  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in four of Swansea’s last seven games.
  • Forest have won three of their last six home games by exactly 2-0.

Swansea to provide a tricky test for Forest

Swansea are a dangerous team – just ask Bournemouth – and cannot be discounted from derailing Nottingham Forest’s automatic promotion challenge at the City Ground on Saturday. Forest, the form horses in the Championship, are fresh off a hard-fought 1-0 victory over leaders Fulham on Tuesday that puts them within three points of the second-placed Cherries.

They have momentum, a superb defensive record, and forwards capable of creating something out of nothing, but they are probably still too short in match result betting at around 1/2 to end the Swans’ nine-match unbeaten run. Russell Martin’s men can be forgiven for their second-half capitulation from 3-0 up against Bournemouth in midweek as they were left vulnerable to an air raid when their only tall centre-back, Ben Cabango, went off with an injury.

Whether the Wales international is fit in time to return on Saturday could have a big bearing on this clash with Forest boss Steve Cooper adroit at tailoring each game plan to each opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. He could be short on options in attack, however, after matchwinner Philip Zinckernagel went off with a knock at Fulham. Lewis Grabban and Keinan Davis were unavailable at Craven Cottage and may not be match fit enough to start this weekend.

Few goals expected in tight, tactical encounter

This will probably a much closer game than the pre-match odds suggest and it could be one where a solitary goal decides the winner. Forest won’t make the defensive mistakes or allow the space that Bournemouth did on Tuesday as they will surely take a different approach to tackling the Swans.

Backing fewer than three goals could be a good alternative to the less profitable play of supporting a Forest win. Five of the Reds’ last six games have been ‘unders’ while four of Swansea’s last seven haven’t seen a third goal scored. A 2-0 Forest win appears worthy of a wager in correct score betting too given that has landed in three of their last six contests, all of which have been wins.
