Tip Reasoning

Nottingham Forest take their promotion bid to Wigan on Saturday, with the visitors sitting in the top two of the Championship. In the one season which started without much expectation, Forest are suddenly in the mix for a Premier League place. They are just a goal shy of leaders West Brom after their impressive start, but with just three points between them and ninth they need to keep things up in order to stay in the mix for promotion.

The hosts have been in patchy form this term, which has left them just three points clear of danger in the second tier. They have lost two of their last three, although they have results at home of late. After back to back victories at home the Latics will be hoping to build up some form at their own ground to pull them away from danger. That’s what they did last year, but their record against the top sides was poor.

Forest head here as one of the main contenders for promotion based on current form. Sabri Lamouchi is getting a lot out of this side, with the club producing a variety of victories. The visitors can push forward and get goals, while they can also grind out wins. They’ve impressed away to the best sides in the division already, while this weekend’s trip to Wigan is the kind of game which Forest need to win to prove they’re the real deal.

Wigan have lost six of their 11 league games so far this season, with Leeds already pulling off a victory at the DW Stadium. The hosts have been poor against some of the best sides in the league this term. There are nine teams who sit within nine points of top spot as things stand, Wigan have lost every game with one of those nine this season.

Meanwhile, Forest are aiming to continue their good form which has taken them into the top two. The visitors are unbeaten on the road this term, having won three of their last four trips. Forest come into this clash with four wins across their last five matches, while they should have the quality to hurt a Wigan side who have been consistently near the bottom of the Championship for 12 months now.

We are backing the visitors to come away with a result in this clash. Nottingham Forest look like good value on the Draw No Bet market here, while we are backing the visitors to claim a 1-0 victory on Saturday. The visitors have won 1-0 in three of their last five games, while none of Wigan’s last four games at the DW have seen both teams score.
