Nottingham Forest vs Bolton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Nottingham Forest suffered a second successive loss as they went down 4-2 at Portman Road to Ipswich. The expected goals data suggest the result was very harsh on the East Midlands outfit whose goals came from Kieran Dowell and Tyler Walker. Bolton continued their recent good run with a 3-1 home victory over Barnsley last time out. Gary Madine was the star of the show as he grabbed a brace while Mark Little also netted once. The last meeting between this pair came in the 2015/16 and Forest have dominated these games losing none of the last eight. These games tend to be high scoring with four of the last six going over 2.5 goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Despite their strong home form, I have to be taking on Forest at the prices on offer here. Bolton have drawn at Fulham and Preston in recent weeks and look capable of getting something at the City Ground. Gary Madine got a brace last time and has four in six appearances and looks the most likely Wanderers scorer. The visitors have netted in three of their last four on the road while the hosts have kept clean-sheets in just four of their last ten at their own ground.

Nottingham Forest Preview

It is now two defeats in a row for Forest and three in four which has seen them slip a little and going into this weekend they sat in 13th place. Just one of their next five is against a team in the top eight so they must use this to put points on the board. At the City Ground, they have looked good of late with four victories from their last five with the sole defeat coming against second-placed Cardiff. They have won three of their last four at home to nil and then the game they lost ended 2-0. Kieran Dowell is in good goalscoring form with five in the last seven while Tyler Walker has three goals in the last four. Four of the five clean sheets the Tricky Trees have kept this season have come at home.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Tendayi Darikwa, Jack Hobbs (both unknown), Chris Cohen and Danny Fox (both knee problems) are doubts.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

It is just one defeat in nine for the Trotters (which came at leaders Wolves) as they have moved themselves out of the bottom three. They must continue this run as three of their next five are against teams in the top ten. Away from the Macron Stadium, they are winless this season though they have drawn three of their last four. A lack of road goals is an issue with only three sides going under the six goals they have scored this season. Eight of their last nine have seen both teams score while five of their last six have gone over 2.5 goals. Gary Madine grabbed a brace in the last game and now has four in his last six appearances.

Bolton Wanderers Team News

David Wheater is available following suspension. Jem Karacan (personal), Chris Taylor (unknown) and Andrew Taylor (back) are expected to miss out.
