Nottingham Forest vs Hull City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in need of a victory 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 league defeat as they went down 2-0 at Fulham. Forest kept things tight for most of the game but were undone by two goals in the last 23 minutes. Hull went down 2-1 at Deepdale to Preston in their last league fixture. The Tigers did take a 29th minute lead through Jarrod Bowen but found themselves 2-1 down by half-time and can have few complaints about the result as North-End were the better team. These two sides have already met twice this season the last time came in the FA Cup at the KC Stadium a few weeks ago in a game Hull won 2-1. Their last league meeting came at the end of October and Forest won that 3-2 thanks to a Kieran Dowell hat-trick while Jarrod Bowen has netted in both these ties.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Nottingham Forest are the favourites for the game given their home advantage but as they have lost each of their last four at their own ground it is hard to back them while Hull have shown nothing on the road to suggest they should be backed. The statistics suggest that this will be a low-scoring game but a recent FA Cup meeting ended 2-1 take a small chance on over 2.5 goals. In addition, go for Jarrod Bowen to net at any time as he has done for the Tigers in both games against the Tricky Trees this season. ‘

Nottingham Forest Preview

The Tricky Trees have now won just one of their last nine in the league which came against top-of-the-table Wolves. They sit in 16th just nine points above the bottom three with each of their next five coming against teams in the bottom ten. At the City Ground, they have now lost each of their last four and failed to net in each of these matches. Only three sides have conceded more goals in front of their own fans than the East Midlands outfit. None of the last seven Nottingham Forest league fixtures have seen both teams find the back of the net. Just one of their last six and two of their last eight matches have gone over 2.5 goals.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Daryl Murphy (rib) and Jamie Ward (hamstring) are doubts while free-agent signing Ben Watson is available for selection.

Hull City Preview

The Tigers continued their recent struggles and a run of just four points from their last nine has seen them slide into the bottom three. They now face a run of three in a row against teams above them in the table. Away from the KC Stadium, it is five straight league defeats and eight without a victory. They have failed to find the back of the net in five of their last seven on the road and just once in their last five. The last nine Hull Championship fixtures have not been ones for the neutral with a total of just 11 goals netted. 55% of their league goals have come in the second-half with 25% in the final 15 minutes.

Hull City Team News

Ondrej Mazuch (hamstring), Markus Henriksen (ankle), Kamil Grosicki (foot), Stephen Kingsley, Michael Dawson (both groin) and Abel Hernandez (Achilles) are doubts. Ryan Mason (skull fracture), Moses Odubajo and James Weir (both knee) are long-term absentees.
