Our Prediction:

Blackburn will win

Blackburn – Nottm Forest Match Prediction | 01-10-2019 14:45

Although they were tired, the game was exactly the type that Forest needed to win in order to push up the table for any hope of promotion. The game against Sheffield Wednesday was more impressive, as they beat an in-form side 2-1, with Grabban scoring once more, as well as record signing Joao Carvalho. Moreover, whilst not at their best in their most recent league game, Forest still beat Rotherham 1-0 thanks to a late penalty by Lewis Grabban. They deserved to win and that should be a marker for the rest of the season, as Forest looked strong throughout the game.

Blackburn Rovers main goal is to secure the Championship survival, but, as things stand now, they could book a place in the play-offs as well. A man to watch in the home team will be Bradley Dack, who has netted four goals so far this term. The Riversiders returned to winning ways and, no doubt, they gave fans something to cheer about. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, recorded back-to-back wins over the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United in previous two home games in the Championship, but given their poor away record, we predict that the Reds are going to share the spoils with Blackburn Rovers on day 10 of the new Championship campaign. Blackburn Rovers will be looking to build on a 3-2 win over Stoke City when they host Nottingham Forest at their Ewood Park on Saturday evening.

Goal Margins

At the City Ground, the East Midlands are showing good form with five victories from their last six with the sole defeat coming against an in-form Villa. In just two of their last ten at their own place have they kept a clean sheet. The Tricky Trees strike late with their last six at home featuring seven goals in the final 20 minutes.

Blackburn Rovers come here having dealt a massive blow to Forests bitter rivals Derby in midweek. They beat the Rams 2-0 on Tuesday to push Frank Lampards side away from the top six. Will they now follow up that win by claiming a victory at the City Ground? Meanwhile, the visitors were able to move onto 50 points with that success, which has made sure of their place in the second tier.

With eight points between them and sixth, it seems like Nottingham Forests playoff hopes are all but over. Forest do have a chance to boost their recent form, with a home clash with Blackburn on Saturday. Martin ONeills side are set for a tame finish to the season, as they look to build up some steam in the remaining five matches of the campaign. Can they return to winning ways in this one?
