Match Preview & Team News

Nottingham Forest are finally looking ahead of a winnable affair on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Birmingham City in the third round of the Championship. They fell 1-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion on the opening Matchday before fighting it out to a 1-1 draw away at Leeds United seven days ago.

The Reds got off to a positive start to their League Cup campaign as well with a 1-0 victory over Fleetwood Town on Tuesday evening at The City Ground. It was team’s maiden official win of the season. Can they snatch the first league victory here against the Blues?

The visitors entered the new season with low ambitions after a modest transfer window. Birmingham ended the previous term at 17th place and not many experts predicted a top-half finish for them ahead of the new campaign.

Nonetheless, Josep Clotet’s men picked up four points from two tricky outings against Brentford and Bristol City. Griffin Park is one of the toughest fortresses o conquer in the entire division, but the Blues managed a 0-1 upset away at the Bees in the first round. It was followed by a disappointing 3-0 loss to Portsmouth in the League Cup, but the team quickly rebounded holding Bristol City to a 1-1 draw last weekend at St. Andrew’s.

Birmingham will rely on their positive experience in head to head clashes with the Reds from the previous season. The Blues bagged two goals in each of two clashes with Nottingham Forest claiming four points in the process.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The Blues will sit at the back and try and keep this a low-scoring contest which is why we see the value in backing the draw at 9/4 as the main betting prediction.

Goals Market Prediction

Birmingham conceded just one goal in two league games against attacking-minded teams. The Under 2.5 goals FT is the best of betting options here and you can back it at the odds of 8/11.
