Steve Cooper goes up against his former club on Saturday, as Nottingham Forest welcome Russell Martin’s Swansea City to the City Ground in a vital EFL Championship fixture for the Reds. Forest are keeping Bournemouth honest in second, waiting to pounce on any slipups by the Cherries. In midweek, those two will square off in a huge six-pointer at the Vitality Stadium. Can Cooper’s troops pick up a massive three points on home soil before then? Read on for the best odds and tips.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds add another three points to the tally?

Steve Cooper has done a remarkable job since taking over at the City Ground. Nottingham Forest were rock bottom of the league when the former Swansea manager arrived, but they can still finish in the top two after an incredible turnaround.

Bournemouth and Forest are in a direct battle for second place. The pair both have three games left, and they meet at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday. If Forest win the next two, second position could be in their hands on the final day.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest to win to nil

Getting the better of in-form Swansea will not be an easy task, but the Reds are the odds-on favourites with the bookmakers.

Swansea City Preview – Can Martin’s Swans spoil the party?

Russell Martin’s Swansea City have been tough to beat of late, winning four and drawing five of nine since back-to-back defeats to Fulham and Blackpool in early March. However, after taking 13 points from a possible 15, the Swans have drawn four in a row.

Swansea could have done Nottingham Forest a massive favour against Bournemouth in midweek. They very nearly did, as the Welsh side led the Cherries 3-0 with just 18 minutes to go. However, Wales international Kieffer Moore helped himself to a brace, and Dominic Solanke scored from the spot to rescue a point for Scott Parker’s side.

Nottingham Forest vs Swansea City Betting Advice

Forest ran riot when these two locked horns at the Stadium in December. Cooper masterminded the perfect away display against his former side, with Philip Zinckernagel, Lewis Grabban, Brennan Johnson and Cafu on target in Wales.

The pair met three times in the 2020-21 season, with Cooper’s Swansea winning all three, netting seven goals in the process.


Key Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Nottingham Forest have won eight of their last nine
  • Forest have suffered just five league defeats under Cooper
  • Swansea have won four and drawn five of their past nine


Swansea have put together a decent unbeaten run at the end of what has been a tough first season for Martin. However, we can see in-form Nottingham Forest ending that run this weekend. There is good value in 7/5 for the hosts to win -1.

Sam Surridge, who spent time on loan at Swansea a couple of years back, has scored five times for Nottingham Forest since linking up with the Reds in January. Surridge is available at 4/1 to open the scoring in this one.
