Fulham v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 24th August 15.00pm

Scott Parker’s Fulham are on a roll, winning each of their last three in the EFL Championship. The Cottagers, who dropped out of the Premier League last term, will be gunning for a fourth victory in a row when Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest visit Craven Cottage at the weekend. In-form Fulham go into this tasty clash as the strong favourites, with the bookies pricing them at 13/20 – Forest are available at 9/2, while the draw is 11/4. This should be another comfortable win for the Whites.

Fulham News and Form – Can the Cottagers make it four in a row?

Fulham started life back in the Championship with a disappointing 1-0 loss to Barnsley at Oakwell. However, the Cottagers have hit back in stunning style, winning three on the spin to fire themselves up to third. At the time of writing, Fulham are just a point adrift of joint leaders Leeds United and Swansea City.

Fulham have secured successive wins over Blackburn Rovers, Huddersfield Town and Millwall, scoring eight and shipping only one along the way. In fact, Parker’s men have conceded just two goals so far.

Fulham ran riot against London rivals Millwall at Craven Cottage in midweek. The excellent Ivan Cavaleiro, who has settled in with aplomb, sent them on their way after just 15 minutes, with Anthony Knockaert making it two on the half-hour mark. Aleksandar Mitrovic banged home a penalty 11 minutes into the second period, and Cavaleiro completed the scoring shortly after.

Fulham, who are many people’s favourites for promotion, are starting to find their rhythm under Parker. Can the Cottagers claim a fourth consecutive victory with three points against Nottingham Forest on Saturday?

Nottingham Forest News and Form – Difficult afternoon for the Reds?

Nottingham Forest have responded well following their opening weekend loss to Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion. The Baggies beat Forest 2-1 at the City Ground, coming from behind to do so. However, the Reds have taken five points from their last three.

Last Saturday, Nottingham Forest cruised to a 3-0 win over Birmingham City at the City Ground, which was their first league triumph under Sabri Lamouchi. First-half goals from Joe Lolley and Lewis Grabban put the game beyond the Blues, with veteran Michael Dawson adding a third in the 65th minute.

Forest have been hard to beat on their travels under Lamouchi so far. The Nottingham club remain the only side to have taken anything from Leeds United this term, as Grabban netted in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road. Last time out, meanwhile, Albert Adomah was on the scoresheet in a 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic. However, Forest picked up just four away league wins last season.

Nottingham Forest will fancy their chances of causing an upset at Craven Cottage at the weekend, but unfortunately for them, I can see the Reds leaving London with nothing to show for their efforts.

Fulham v Nottingham Forest Predictions

Fulham win: The London outfit have looked the real deal in recent weeks, easing to successive wins over Blackburn, Huddersfield and Millwall. Fulham put on the Championship performance of the season on Wednesday, thumping the Lions 4-0 at Craven Cottage. Their star-studded front line was on fire in that one, and I fancy Fulham to claim another comfortable victory at the weekend. Back the Cottagers to win -1 at 7/4.

Fulham will be hoping for a fast start against Forest. In the midweek win over Millwall, the Cottagers needed just 15 minutes to break through. Since losing at Oakwell on the opening weekend, Fulham have scored the opening goal in all of their following three games. The home team are the 4/9 favourites to score the first goal at Craven Cottage this weekend.
