Millwall vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 6th December 19.45pm

This weekend’s action in the EFL Championship gets underway on Friday night, as Gary Rowett’s Millwall welcome Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest to The Den for a tasty fixture. The Lions have been in good form under new boss Rowett, and the hosts head into this one as the 11/8 favourites. However, after losing at home to Cardiff City last time out, Forest will be keen to get back to winning ways on Friday. Both sides are capable of winning this, but which way will it go in the English capital?

Key-Facts – Millwall vs Nottingham Forest

  • Only Queens Park Rangers have won at The Den this term
  • Millwall are unbeaten in their last five at home, taking 11 points from an available 15
  • Forest have won two and drawn one of their last three away league games


Nottingham Forest News and Form – Can the Reds strike back with an away win?

Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest fell to a shock defeat to Neil Harris’ Cardiff at the City Ground last weekend. Prior to that, the Reds had taken ten points from a possible 12 after back-to-back defeats to Wigan Athletic and Hull City.

Nevertheless, Nottingham Forest have been very solid under Lamouchi so far. Forest have been one of the surprise packages, and they head to London in fourth spot in the table. Considering that they have played a game less than every team in the top half, that’s very good going by the Reds.

Reaching the play-offs will be Forest’s ultimate goal this season. At the time of writing, the Reds are two points above seventh place and eight points adrift of the automatic spots. A win at The Den on Friday would put them right back on track.

Millwall vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

Draw: Millwall have been in excellent form of late, with Rowett really starting to stamp his authority on the team. However, since beating Charlton and Swansea in successive matches, the Lions have drawn their last two, so Rowett will be looking for all three points on Friday night.

Nottingham Forest racked up over 30 shots on Cardiff’s goal last weekend, but only two of those were on target as they succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat. Like Millwall, the Reds will be targeting maximum points from Friday’s fixture. However, this could go either way in the capital, so my money is going on the draw at 23/10. As for the correct score, bet365’s price of 15/2 for the 0-0 stalemate is standing out.
