Nottingham Forest vs Derby County

Championship action for me in a game that will be played at the City ground, Nottingham and will kick off at 14:30 UK time. The game will be between Nottingham Forest and Derby County.
The hosts head into the game in 15th in the table on 44 points, they don’t really have much to play for if I’m honest. They have no chance of making the play off places this season and they are also pretty much safe as far as i can see this season. Looking at the teams below them there is far more bad teams in this league that will go down. Forest do have a strong squad and should be around the top 10 come the end of the season.
Forest have managed to secure 13 wins from their 36 league games, they don’t draw many games, it’s either win or lose with forest. Their fortitude doesn’t seem to be great when they trail behind. Forest do have 43 goals to their name this season along with 54 conceded! they haven’t lost a game since 10th Feb and have an unbeaten run of 5 going at the moment with 3 draws and 2 wins.

The visitors for the game are local rivals Derby County. They were in a great position in the league not so long ago, however, their form of late has been terrible! They haven’t won since the 3-0 home game vs Brentford on the 3rd Feb! Derby will still want to make the play off places come the end of the season and a performance vs a local rival will need to be good and they must go for a win to keep their place inside the play off places.
Derby of late have been shipping goals, their last 6 games has seen them concede in every game, a total of 11 goals, scoring 8 themselves. Both sides will be desperate for a result here and I think both sides will really attack each other with a full house. I’m expecting goals in this one and think that both sides are more than capable of a goal each. I will be backing BTTS at a price of 1.91 with William Hill. Good luck all.

Bet: Both teams to score
