Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds avoid a third straight loss?

Nottingham Forest have had a disappointing week, falling to narrow 1-0 losses to both Luton and Watford. However, prior to those, Chris Hughton’s boys had lost just two league games since mid-December.

Nottingham Forest’s form in 2021 has lifted them away from trouble, but Hughton’s boys are not out of the relegation woods just yet. The Reds currently occupy 17th place, eight points above 22nd-place Rotherham United, who will have four games in hand at the end of the weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Reading to win to nil

(odds taken 1638 GMT, Friday 12 March)

Only Watford and Middlesbrough have won at the City Ground in 2021. The Midlands outfit have certainly hardened up at the back, but the recent losses have got them looking over their shoulder again. Can Forest pick up an invaluable three points on home turf at the weekend?

Reading Preview – Fourth win on the spin for the Royals?

Reading have done remarkably well to stay in the top six all season. The Royals have defied the odds, and Veljko Paunovic has had a superb first season in charge at the Madejski Stadium so far. Reading are currently in fifth place with 60 points to their name.

After losses to Middlesbrough and Wycombe Wanderers in late February, Reading have bounced back with three vital victories. Last time out, Paunovic’s troops cruised to a 3-0 home win over Darren Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday. Prior to that, they had seen off Rotherham and Blackburn Rovers (both 1-0).
