Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds to extend unbeaten run to eight?

Nottingham Forest have had a tough time this season, but Chris Hughton’s men have finally turned a corner in recent weeks. The Reds are unbeaten in seven league and cup matches, winning four and drawing three.

Nottingham Forest head into this midweek clash having won three in a row. Sandwiched in between an Emirates FA Cup win over fellow Championship side Cardiff City were league wins over Preston North End and Millwall.

Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 1550 GMT, Tuesday 19 January)

Last time out, Forest eased past Gary Rowett’s Lions at the City Ground. A Sammy Ameobi brace helped Hughton’s side to a comfortable 3-1 home victory.

Nottingham Forest still have plenty of work to do as they fight for Championship survival. The Midlands club are currently in 19th spot, six points clear of the bottom three. However, their results have improved of late, and Forest will be looking for another three points on Wednesday night.

Middlesbrough Preview – Can Boro bounce back with a win?

The experienced Neil Warnock has been working his magic at Middlesbrough this season, as the North Yorkshire outfit are just four points off the play-offs in seventh at the halfway stage. Boro have picked up ten wins from 23 league matches, drawing six and losing seven of the other 13.

Despite their lofty league position, Middlesbrough have lost two of their last three in the Championship. Last weekend, Warnock’s men crashed to a shock 1-0 home loss to Birmingham City. They were also recently beaten by Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
