Swansea – Nottm Forest Match Prediction | 28-08-2019 10:00

In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County. Derby County are regarded as Forests bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool.

They sit in 11th place in the table however are just 3 points off 6th placed Aston Villa. Nottingham Forest head into this weekends game against Swansea knowing a win will give their chances of a play off spot a big boost. They dont come into this game in great form as they were beat 3-1 by Aston Villa and drew 1-1 away at basement club Ipswich Town last time out.

They did lose 3-1 last time out at The City Ground to a resurgent Aston Villa side who were level on points with them until that game. Nottingham Forest have been solid on home soil since the turn of the year, they have won 5 of their 7 home games in that time beating Leeds United, Wigan, Brentford, Derby and Hull in that run.

While the Welsh outfit have been struggling for goals of late Oliver McBurnie could be back while Forest are going to have to attack this one which could open opportunities on the break for the visitors. I would instead look at both teams to score. The prices in the match market look about right with Nottingham Forest enjoying home advantage but probably little to choose between these sides when they are both at their best.

More England Championship Fixtures

Hes hit a brick wall for them however as he has bagged just one goal in his last 12 league appearances, that coming in a 2-1 victory against Brentford. Swansea on the other hand have 22 year old Oliver McBurnie who has settled down very well since his move from Barnsley. Both sides have one of the best forwards in the league, Nottingham Forests Lewis Grabban ranks 10th on the top scorer charts with 15 league goals this season. The young Scot has scored 16 times in 33 league appearances and has scored in each of his last 3 outings for Swansea and has netted 8 goals in his last 8 games.

Swansea City were looking good in their hunt for a play off place this season however their form has taken a bit of a nosedive, they lost away at Norwich and West Bromwich Albion in their last two league games whilst last time out they lost 3-2 to Manchester City in that controversial FA Cup tie. Its unclear how much that will have deflated the squad, however with the International break right after that game it has at least given them two weeks to re focus and get their promotion bid back on track.

For that reason we are backing Nottingham Forest to win. We do see Swansea getting on the score sheet however, they have netted in 9 of their last 12 away from home with the 3 they failed to score in against 1st, 4th and 9th. These two sides couldnt be in much different form home vs away, although Forest have lost their last home game against Aston Villa we feel their four wins on the bounce before that will still give them the confidence over a Swansea side that have lost 5 away games on the bounce. On that basis we are backing Forest to win this one 2-1.

Nottingham Forest have been solid on home soil since the turn of the year, they have won 5 of their 7 home games in that time beating Leeds United, Wigan, Brentford, Derby and Hull in that run. They did lose 3-1 last time out at The City Ground to a resurgent Aston Villa side who were level on points with them until that game.

Goal Timings

In the first half of the season the Swans defeated the Reds at Liberty Stadium, but this time out we are tempted to put our money on Martin ONeills troops. Nottingham Forest are only three points behind the play-offs berth, meaning that this game is of big importance for them. The Swans, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale and considering that they are on a three-game losing run in all competitions, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Wales empty-handed. Nottingham Forest and Swansea City face each other at the City Ground in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturdays program. The Reds registered four wins in previous five home games in the English top flight, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Swansea City.

On top of that, the team could return just two goals in total from their last five road trips. Forest won four of their last five home ties, whereas Swansea lost their last five away games in a row. Going on, the last four h2h wins were recorded by teams with home advantage, and three of the last five wins went to Forest.
