Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the in-form Reds shock another Premier League side?

Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest are battling for promotion to the Premier League this season. It has been quite a turnaround for the Reds since Steve Cooper arrived, as the Welshman has turned the club from relegation fodder into genuine promotion candidates.

Nottingham Forest pulled off one of the shocks of round three when they beat record FA Cup winners Arsenal at the City Ground. Lewis Grabban’s goal seven minutes from time earned Cooper’s boys a memorable 1-0 win.

Our betting prediction:
Forest to score first

(odds taken 2021 GMT, Friday 4 February)

Forest were beaten at Cardiff City in their last one but had won four in a row before that. Can they get back to winning ways in the cup this weekend?

Leicester City Preview – Will the cup holders move into round five?

Leicester City won the FA Cup for the first time last term and have finished in fifth place in the Premier League for two seasons running. However, they have not quite been at it this term. The Foxes were knocked out of the UEFA Europa League in the group stage and currently sit tenth in the Premier League.

Leicester were far too strong for Watford in the previous round of the FA Cup. Last year’s final hero Youri Tielemans put the Foxes ahead early doors, with James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton also on target in the 4-1 rout.
