Boosted with confidence the Reds are going for a third win in a row

The one-time English league title holders Nottingham Forest were relegated from the Premier League in 1999. Since then, the Reds have struggled to get back to the top flight. This season, Forest were off to a terrible start after going winless in seven matches (D1, L6). However, the second part of the season was much more successful for boss Steve Cooper’s team

To illustrate, The Reds lost just one of their last 15 matches and that was at home to Fulham 0-4. Moreover, Forest are now undefeated in eight games and have conceded only one goal at home since that Fulham defeat. Additionally, Boss Steve Cooper will be very satisfied with his team’s last performance in which they beat Swansea 4-1 in Wales. Hence confidence is very high at the City ground coming into this match.

A fine run form makes the Tigers dangerous opponents

Almost similar to their opponents, Hull City turned their season around after starting with one win in nine games. However, the Tigers are now on a six-match unbeaten run winning four and drawing the last two. Nevertheless, Hull find themselves just four points above the relegation zone. Hence it’s crucial to keep that unbeaten run going and a win here won’t harm at all.

Their recent form is impressive though, as they beat Birmingham and Barnsley who are better placed than them on the table. Moreover, their away record would give them some confidence as well since they are undefeated in their last three trips (W2, D1). To Conclude, Hull are in a  good form and can be a very dangerous matchup against any team.

Nottingham Forest vs Hull City Prediction 

Surely this will be an interesting fixture as both teams are on undefeated streaks. The fact that Nottingham have eight points more than Hull, doesn’t make it a one-sided game. And we can justify that with the last two h2h meetings when each team won on the road.

Two or more goals were scored in Nottingham’s last two matches. While Hull’s last three matches saw a such number of total goals. Certainly, there is a big gap between the two teams’ scoring records, 30 goals for Forest and 19 for Hull. However, the defensive record is almost the same. 

As a result, we think we will see goals in this match and at least two of them and the chances for that is 78% according to the stats. Hence we will back over 1.5 goals to be scored combined with a double chance outcome.

 And for our second prediction, we will back Forest to score first as was the case in their last four matches.
