Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 30th November 15.00pm

Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest welcome Neil Harris’ Cardiff City to the City Ground for a tasty EFL Championship clash on Saturday. The Reds, who thumped Queens Park Rangers 4-0 in midweek, have been flying of late, while the Bluebirds are unbeaten in two under their new boss. Forest are the favourites in this one, but can Cardiff return to South Wales with something to show for their efforts?

Nottingham Forest News and Form – Will the in-form Reds make it four wins from five?

Since arriving at the City Ground, Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi has made a huge impact. Nottingham Forest have certainly been one of the surprise packages, spending the majority of the season in the top six of the Championship table.

The Reds go into this round of fixtures in fourth place, seven points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion, who have played a game more. Lamouchi’s troops have won nine, drawn five and lost just three of their opening 17 matches.

Nottingham Forest romped to a big 4-0 victory away at Queens Park Rangers in midweek. The Reds ran riot at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, scoring four times without reply. Tobias Figueiredo, Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho and Alfa Semedo were the scorers in the capital.

Forest have won six of their last eight at home in all competitions since losing to West Brom on the opening weekend of the Championship season. Will they prevail at the City Ground again at the weekend?

Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Head to Head

On their way to promotion to the Premier League in the 2017-18 season, Cardiff did the double over Forest

When they last clashed at the City Ground, goals from Junior Hoilett and Danny Ward gave City a 2-0 win

The Bluebirds have a stunning recent record over the Reds, winning eight and drawing one of the last nine

Forest’s last win over the Welsh side came in October 2012

 

Key-Facts – Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City

  • Forest have taken ten points from a possible 12 since back-to-back defeats
  • Cardiff have yet to win away since beating Man Utd on the final day of the Premier League season
  • The Bluebirds are unbeaten in two under Harris

 

Cardiff City News and Form – Can the Bluebirds pick up first away victory?

Neil Harris has started life in South Wales win a draw and a win from two games. The Bluebirds came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Charlton Athletic in his first match in charge last Saturday. Leandro Bacuna’s goal then gave them a 1-0 win over Stoke City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday.

Incredibly, 20 of Cardiff’s 25 points have come on home turf this season. Only Preston North End have a better home record, but the Welsh side have not won away from home since beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League back in May.

After a slow start under Neil Warnock, the Bluebirds are now ticking along nicely in 11th position, just five points away from the play-off places. Can Harris’ men secure their first away win of the season at the City Ground on Saturday?

Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Predictions

Draw: Nottingham Forest are a team in excellent form at the moment. Since falling to back-to-back losses to Wigan Athletic and Hull City in October, the Reds have got back on track with ten points from an available 12.

Cardiff have battled to four points from two games under their new boss, and I fancy the Bluebirds to leave the Midlands with a precious point on Saturday. The draw is priced at 9/4. Also, check out the generous odds of 11/1 for the draw and over 2.5 goals.
