(odds taken 1511 GMT, Thursday 17 February)

Bournemouth will be desperate to make it four wins on the spin, but Friday’s clash will be their toughest challenge of 2022 yet. Nevertheless, the hosts are the bookies’ favourites at 4/5.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds leave Dorset with a positive result?

Steve Cooper has done a remarkable job since taking over at the City Ground. Nottingham Forest kicked off the season with six defeats from their opening seven under Chris Hughton. Since Cooper’s arrival, only Fulham, Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City have beaten them.

The Reds are having a sensational 2022 so far, winning six of eight in all competitions. They have claimed four Championship wins since the turn of the year as well as beating Premier League sides Arsenal and Leicester City in the FA Cup. Can they keep their momentum ticking?
