Nottingham Forest Preview – Will the Reds return to winning ways?

Steve Cooper has come in at Nottingham Forest and more than just steadied the ship. The Reds have won four, drawn two and lost one since the former Swansea City boss arrived at the City Ground in late September.

After a humbling 4-0 loss to high-flying Fulham in their last home game, Nottingham Forest battled hard to leave the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium with a point last Friday. Jack Colback netted in injury time to give Forest a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1419 GMT, Monday 1 November)

Having collected just one point from two after four consecutive wins, Cooper’s boys would love to get back to winning ways here. The bookies are offering the tempting price of 19/10 for a home victory.

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades bounce back from Blackpool blow?

Slavisa Jokanovic has struggled at Bramall Lane since taking over. Sheffield United, who finished bottom of the Premier League last term, have started life back in the Championship by taking just 18 points from their opening 15 games.

The Blades have picked up five wins, lost seven and drawn three. They find themselves down in 17th after last weekend’s poor home defeat to Blackpool. Inconsistency has been their Achilles heel, as United have won two and lost four of their last six.

Sheffield United’s season under Jokanovic has yet to take off. They will be desperate to put a run of results together, starting with three points against Forest on Tuesday.


Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since April 2019. Goals from Mark Duffy and Enda Stevens gave Sheffield United a 2-0 victory at Bramall Lane in that one. Several months earlier, Forest edged the matchup at the City Ground, with Lewis Grabban scoring the only goal of the game. United went on to win promotion to the Premier League at the end of the campaign.


Key Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Only Fulham have beaten Nottingham Forest since Steve Cooper arrived
  • Sheffield United have lost four of their past six
  • Both clubs have taken 18 points thus far


These two look pretty well matched at the moment. Both have taken 18 points from a possible 45 after five wins, three draws and seven defeats. Each club will be desperate for the points, but we fancy Forest to make home advantage count. You can get the solid odds of 10/3 for the home team to win by a one-goal margin.

Veteran striker Lewis Grabban has been in decent form of late, scoring five goals in his last ten Championship appearances. The Nottingham Forest skipper will be keen to get his name on the scoresheet on Tuesday after three games without a goal. Back Grabban to score the opener here at 5/1.
