Norwich City vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two sides in the bottom 12 of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich were scheduled to play Barnsley at Oakwell this weekend though the game fell victim to the weather. The Canaries were last in action on the 24th February when they were held to a goalless draw by Bolton at Carrow Road. Nottingham Forest did get the go ahead to play this weekend and they defeated Birmingham 2-1 at the City Ground. Joe Lolley and Matty Cash got the goals to make it back-to-back league victories. The reverse came in November from the East Midlands in a match the Tricky Trees won 1-0 through a Daryl Murphy goal. Wes Hoolahan has netted in two of his last four appearances against Forest.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the Canaries have won just three of their last 14 at Carrow Road I think the visitors and the draw in the double chance market looks the way to play this. The draw seems the most likely result but at these prices we can cover both options. Three of the last four the Canaries have played have ended in score draws while Forest hit five in their last road trip so backing both teams to score in this fixture also looks worth a little interest.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have now drawn each of their last four and are unbeaten in their last six in the Championship. This marks the start of a run that sees three of their next four in front of their own fans. At Carrow Road, they have drawn their last two and won just three of their last 14 in the league. Seven of the last nine at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. Three of the last four Norwich games have ended in a score draw with two of these ending 1-1 and the other 2-2. Around 67% of the goals the East Anglian outfit have netted this season have come in the second-half.

Norwich City Team News

TImm Klose (hamstring) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are doubts while Louis Thompson (Achilles) and Tom Trybull (ankle) are long-term absentees.

Nottingham Forest Preview

A run of eight points from their last four fixtures has moved Forest up the table and they look safe for the season. They sit on 43 points which is 13 above Birmingham in 22nd and they now face four straight games against sides in the top 14. Away from the City Ground, they have lost just one of their last six and that came at Craven Cottage against red-hot Fulham. Just one of their last five on their travels have seen both teams find the back of the net. Lee Tomlin has netted three in his last three while Joe Lolley has scored two in the last two fixtures. Around 54% of the goals Nottingham Forest have scored have come in the 15 minutes prior to half and full time.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Eric Lichaj is available after suspension though David Vaughan (unknown) and Jamie Ward (hamstring) are doubts.
