Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds avoid a fourth league loss in a row?

Nottingham Forest are still suffering a hangover from last season. After missing out on the top six after an unforgettable last day in the Championship, Forest have started this season with three defeats from three.

On the opening weekend of the new Championship season, Sabri Lamouchi’s men were beaten 2-0 by Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Forest then lost by the same scoreline to Cardiff City at the City Ground on matchday two.

Our betting prediction:
Bristol City to be winning at half time

(odds taken 0733 GMT, Friday 28 August)

The Reds’ misery was compounded last Friday when they were beaten 1-0 by Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. Forest also lost to fellow Championship side Barnsley in the first round of the Carabao Cup a month ago.

Nottingham Forest are only above the drop zone on goal difference at the moment. Can the sorry Reds finally put some points on the board at the weekend?

Bristol City Preview – Will the Robins make it 12 points from a possible 12?

New Bristol City boss Dean Holden spent several years as Lee Johnson’s number two at Ashton Gate. The 41-year-old knows the club inside out, which shows in City’s early season performances and results.

Bristol City have won five of their opening six league and cup matches at the start of this term. Three of those victories have come in the Championship, while their only loss came to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last week.

The pair played out two tight and tense affairs in last season’s Championship. After a goalless draw at Ashton Gate, a Tiago Silva goal was enough to give Nottingham Forest a 1-0 victory at the City Ground on July 1st. In fact, there have only been four goals scored in the previous four meetings.

  • Only one goal was scored across the two league fixtures last season

Bristol City’s Jamie Paterson has already scored three league and cup goals this term. Back the 28-year-old to net anytime on Saturday at 3/1.
