Nottingham Forest News and Form – Can the Reds get back to winning ways?

Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest were narrowly beaten at the DW Stadium on Sunday. It was a close matchup in Greater Manchester, but Jamal Lowe’s goal ten minutes before half time was enough to give Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic a narrow 1-0 win.

That was Forest’s first Championship reverse since losing 2-1 at home to West Bromwich Albion on the opening weekend. On the whole, Lamouchi has had a positive impact at the City Ground, guiding the Reds to six wins from 12 league matches. Forest go into this round of fixtures sitting fourth in the table.

Hull City News and Form – A third defeat on the spin for the struggling Tigers?

Hull City have had a mixed bag of results up until now, winning three, drawing four and losing five of their opening 12 matches. The Tigers occupy 19th spot in the Championship table with 13 points to their name, just four points above the drop zone.

Since beating Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at the KCOM Stadium on October 1st, Hull have crashed to back-to-back defeats. The Tigers lost 3-0 at Huddersfield Town before losing 3-2 at home to Queens Park Rangers last time out. Despite taking the lead, Hull were second best against QPR last Saturday.

Having lost two in a row, Grant McCann’s men could do with a positive result at the City Ground in midweek. However, the bookies are not giving them a lot of hope, pricing City at 14/5 to get an away win.

Nottingham Forest v Hull City Predictions

Nottingham Forest win: The Reds have been very strong at the City Ground under Lamouchi, taking ten points from their last four on home turf. Since drawing 1-1 with Preston North End in August, Forest have won their last two at home, beating both Barnsley and Brentford by a 1-0 scoreline.

As for Hull City, they have picked up just one away win this season, drawing two and losing two of the other four. This will no doubt be another stern test on the road for the Tigers, so have a punt on Forest to win -1 at 12/5. The Reds have kept five clean sheets at the City Ground this season, with all five resulting in wins. I’m backing Forest to win to nil on Wednesday, which is also available at 12/5.
