Hull City vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in decent form in the Championship though they sit in opposite halves. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Hull stretched their unbeaten run to three with a 3-3 draw at Birmingham in their last match before the international break. Frazier Campbell grabbed a brace and Kamil Grosicki netted one to give them a point that was the least their efforts deserved.

Nottingham Forest stretched their unbeaten run to four in their game prior to the break with a goalless home draw against Stoke. Forest just about shaded a game low on chances and quality.

The side playing away from home won both meetings between the pair last season with it ending 2-0 to the Tigers in Nottingham and 3-2 to the Tricky Trees in Humberside. Jarod Bowen has netted in two of his last three against the East Midlands outfit.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer which make Hull marginal favourites given they are unbeaten in their last four at their own place. Forest are dangerous opponents on the road losing once this season though the fact that five of these have finished all-square puts me off backing them.

Both teams have a number of players in goal scoring form and this is the way I would look to get into the game.  Lewis Grabban is a good option but I will put up Joe Lolley at bigger odds for the visitors who has two in his last three on the road. Frazier Campbell has four in his last three at all grounds and he looks worth backing to net at any time.

Hull City Preview

Two victories from their last three and just one defeat in their last five has given the Tigers hope of getting away from the relegation zone. They currently sit 22nd but the expected goals data feels this is harsh and has them up in 16th.

At the KC Stadium, they have been a mixed bag of late with one victory, two draws and one defeat from their last four. These matches have all been low-scoring with a combined total of just six goals produced.

Hull are the fourth lowest scorers in the Championship this season having netted just 16 times. They have conceded 24 times which is on the higher side but just eight of these have come in their last eight.

 

Hull City Team News

Nouha Dicko (hamstring) and Stephen Kingsley (hip) are doubts while Evandro, Jon Toral, Angus MacDonald (all calf) and James Weir (meniscus) are long-term absentees.

Nottingham Forest Preview

The Tricky Trees have picked up eight points from the last 12 on offer and have lost just one of the last 11 and that came against leaders Norwich. They sit in seventh just one point and place outside the top six though the expected goals data has them down in 12th.

Away from the City Ground, they are unbeaten in five and have lost just one of their last eight with five of these ending in a draw. Lewis Grabban has five in his last four on the road while Joe Lolley has two in three.

Nottingham Forest have scored 23 goals in the Championship this campaign which is a middle tier record. Their defence is the third best ranked conceding just 16 goals and just one in their last four.

 

Nottingham Forest Team News

Daryl Murphy (virus), Hilel Soudani (knee) Danny Fox (knock) and Juan Rafael Fuentes (also knee) are doubts while Sam Byram (ankle) is a long-term absentee.
