Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Preview, Predicted Lineups and Prediction
Venue: City Ground
Kick-off: 03:00 PM GMT / 10:00 AM EST
Nottingham Forest News
Nottingham Forest’s hopes of making it into one of the playoff positions is all but over following their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley at Turf Moor in midweek and with Dougie Freedman’s men currently on a run of only one victory in their last five, they could potentially drop further down the table before too long if things do not improve.
Now Forest prepare to welcome relegation battlers Bristol City to the City Ground this weekend and the match will be a tricky encounter for Freedman’s side despite their opponents lowly position in the Championship table at the moment.
Nottingham Forest Lineup: D. de Vries, M. Mancienne, M. Mills, B. Jokić, E. Lichaj, R. Tesche, D. Vaughan, G. Gardner, B. Osborn, J. Ward, Nélson Oliveira
Bristol City News
Bristol City were brought right back down to earth after their four match unbeaten run ended following a crushing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek.
The defeat sees Bristol remain in 20th place in the table and while they are still eight points off of the drop zone, manager Lee Johnson will surely want his team to bounce back with a good performance as soon as possible – starting with a positive result against struggling Nottingham Forest this weekend.
Bristol City Probable Lineup: R. O’Donnell, S. Golbourne, A. Pearce, A. Flint, Z. Vyner, K. Smith, M. Pack, A. Wilbraham, L. Tomlin, J. Kodjia, L. Freeman
Bristol City have had the measure of Nottingham Forest in recent times, losing only once in their last five encounters and given Forest’s terrible run of form at the moment, The Robins will feel that they have a chance of bettering the record this weekend.
However Forest hold the home advantage at the moment and a draw could be seen as a decent result by both sides on the day.
Nottingham Forest 1 – 1 Bristol City
