Nottingham Forest continued their undefeated streak last weekend when the side visited Blackburn last Saturday afternoon and took a point in a 2:2 draw. This was their fourth game without a loss, as they previously had victories over Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham at home.
Needs to be said that they were a bit lucky to get a point since the hosts looked better in both parts of the game, but Grabban brought the visitors into the lead at the start of the second halftime. Even though the hosts reverted quickly, the same player was precise from the penalty spot in the 80th minute for the final result.
The side is now having three victories, six draws, and a defeat – staying currently very close to the play-off positions.
Grabban should continue to lead their attack in a version of a 4-2-3-1 formation. Osborn, Carvalho, and Lolley should be his offensive support. Forward Diogo Goncalves (2/0) is suspended now. Another offensive player, El Arbi Soudani (4/2) remains to be sidelined due to injury. Right back Sam Byram (1/0) also has a problem and shouldn’t play in this one.
Millwall, on the other side, doesn’t remind anywhere close of a team that they were in the previous season. After ten rounds played, the team has only one victory so far and with six points earned, they are inside the relegation zone.
Most recently, they come from their third consecutive defeat when they welcomed Sheffield United last Saturday afternoon. Their visitors were far better, especially in the second part and even though the hosts reverted the scoreline and had the 2:1 lead already in the second half via goals from Cooper and Gregory – they did suffer a fair defeat in the end.
Visitors are set to continue in typical 4-4-2 formation with Morison and Gregory as forwards. Central defender Shaun Hutchinson (4/0) is injured. Their squad anyway has lack of depth, so they aren’t expected to change much.
~ Millwall have lost their last 4 away matches (Championship).
Millwall is simply too unreliable at the moment, especially in the defensive line and away from home. Nottingham Forest looks far more firm and steady in comparison to them.
