Nottingham Forest Preview – Big three points for the Reds?

Steve Cooper has done a remarkable job with Nottingham Forest since taking over. The Reds have gone from relegation fodder to promotion hopefuls under their new boss. Forest are in tenth at present, only five points adrift of the play-offs.

Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in five in the league since a disappointing loss to Cardiff City at the end of January. Three of their last five Championship games have ended all square, though. Because of that, Cooper’s boys could do with all three points from this one.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest to be winning at half time & full time

Nottingham Forest are also in excellent form in the FA Cup. Next weekend, the Reds welcome giants Liverpool to the City Ground in the quarter-finals. However, before then, Forest have two vital Championship fixtures to deal with.

Reading Preview – Royals to crash to another damaging defeat?

Paul Ince’s Reading find themselves just five points above Derby County and Barnsley, who are both ready to pounce on any potential mistakes. The season has been a real struggle for the Royals since the points deduction.

Ince picked up all three points in his first game in charge last month, as goals Lucas Joao and John Swift earned Reading a 2-1 home success over Birmingham City. However, they went on to lose to Blackpool and Millwall in the next two.
