Tip Reasoning

  • Swansea’s only win in their last five Championship games was away to struggling Barnsley.
  • Nottingham Forest have won four and drawn four of their last eight away games.

Cooper can mastermind win over former club

Swansea City and Nottingham Forest have tracked each other in the Championship table throughout this season, but there’s an opportunity for one to give their playoff hopes a real boost at the expense of the other this Saturday.

Back-to-back defeats have dropped the Swans one place and one point behind Forest, who bring their eight-game unbeaten streak to the Liberty Stadium.

Steve Cooper knows the place like the back of his hand, having led Swansea to the playoffs twice in two years at the helm before taking the City Ground job in September.

So he should have a good idea of how to set his current team up to come away with a positive result this weekend. Forest, who have won three and drawn three Championship road trips since Cooper took over, also boast the best defensive record in the division across that spell.

Swansea leaking goals but Forest remain firm

And with Swansea having leaked as many goals in their last two home Championship games as they had done in their previous eight, it looks like a good time to be travelling to the Liberty Stadium.

The Welsh club’s overall form must be  a real concern for Russell Martin as his side’s only win in their last five outings came against a struggling Barnsley side with a new manager who had taken over just days before. They also took almost 75 minutes to break the deadlock in that game.

So while the double chance and draw no bet options remain tempting, our belief is that the Forest to win bet has real merit now. After averaging 1.71 goals per game for and 0.57 goals against during their last seven away games, we’re minded to pick a 2-0 Forest win in correct score betting.
