Steve Cooper heads back to Swansea City this weekend, as Nottingham Forest make the trip to the Swansea.com Stadium for an EFL Championship matchup. Cooper has done a fine job at the City Ground since inheriting the managerial reigns, with just league leaders Fulham getting the better of them. Russell Martin’s Swansea will be desperate to avoid a third consecutive Championship defeat. This fascinating fixture could go either way in South Wales. Check out our betting preview below.

Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans avoid a trio of losses?

Russell Martin has had a mixed time at Swansea City since taking over just before the start of the season. They began poorly, winning just one of the opening eight, but wins over Cardiff City, West Bromwich Albion, Peterborough United and Coventry City from mid-October to early November lifted them away from trouble and up the table.

The Swans have blown hot and cold in recent weeks, though. They have picked up just one win from the last five and have suffered two losses on the spin. Last time out, City were beaten at Middlesbrough.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1420 GMT, Friday 10 December)

Swansea will want to bounce back from the defeats to Reading and Middlesbrough, but this will be a tough task against one of the league’s form sides. The Welsh side are priced at 6/5 to get the points on home turf.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds’ fine form to continue in Wales?

Nottingham Forest looked like relegation candidates in the early weeks of the season, as the Reds opened up with six defeats and a draw from seven. Chris Hughton was sacked after a 2-0 home reverse to Middlesbrough on 15th September.

Former Swansea boss Steve Cooper took over at the City Ground shortly after, and Nottingham Forest have been extremely tough to beat ever since. After 13 games in charge, only Fulham have beaten Cooper’s Reds.

These two met each other three times last season. Swansea did the double in the Championship, beating Forest 1-0 home and away. In an FA Cup meeting in January, the Swans thumped the Reds 5-1 at the Swansea.com Stadium, with Liam Cullen and Matt Grimes both netting braces.

Swansea are unbeaten in four against Nottingham Forest, winning three and drawing one. Forest’s last success in this fixture came back in September 2019.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Swansea have lost just two home games this term
  • Only Fulham have beaten Cooper’s Forest
  • The Swans have won the last three meetings


Swansea are not an easy nut to crack on their own patch. However, they were beaten by lowly Reading in their last home fixture. Forest have turned themselves into genuine play-off candidates, as Cooper’s boys are just six points adrift of sixth place.

This Championship clash in Wales really could go either way, but we fancy Nottingham Forest to nick the points. The away win is generously priced at 5/2. As for the correct score, bet365’s top odds of 8/1 for the visitors to win 1-0 are standing out.
