Nottingham Forest vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who were at different ends of the ante-post outright market. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Nottingham Forest picked up just their second victory of the season in midweek as they defeated Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at the City Ground. Lewis Grabban and Joao Carvalho got the goals to give them a deserved three points. Rotherham will be looking to bounce back following their defeat in midweek which saw them lose 2-0 at Aston Villa. They can have few complaints about the result which was a fourth straight defeat on the road. These two sides were in different divisions last season so you need to go back to the 2016/17 season for their last meetings. In their 19 competitive meetings this century Forest have not lost to United.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Rotherham lost by two goals at Aston Villa in midweek and Forest are rated as highly as Villa so backing the home team to cover -1.0 on the Asian Handicap is the recommend play.  Lewis Grabban has been someone who has a clear goal threat and having scored last time out his confidence will be high and as such he looks the bet in the anytime goalscorer market.

Forest -1.0 on the Asian Handicap

Nottingham Forest Preview

The Tricky Trees have lost just once this season but a tendency to draw too many (five of eight) has held them back. They have 11 points and sit in 11th place while the expected goals data has them as low as 20th. At the City Ground, it is two wins and two draws this season and no defeat in seven when taking into account 2017/18 results. In just one of their four in front of their own fans have the East Midlands outfit been ahead going into the break. Four of the last five that Nottingham Forest have played in the league have gone over 2.5 goals with two going over 3.5. Both teams to score has happened in six of their eight this season.

Nottingham Forest Team News

Daryl Murphy (calf), Juan Rafael Fuentes, Hillel Soudani (both knee) and Sam Byram (ankle) are unlikely to play any part of this fixture.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers have made an okay start to the season winning three of their eight and losing the other five. They sit 18th in the table while the expected goals data has them a little lower in 21st. Away from the New York Stadium, it is played four lost four with one goal netted and ten goals conceded. Seven of the ten they have conceded on the road have come in the second-half. Rotherham have seen just two of their last eight go over 2.5 goals including none of their last four. None of their last four have seen both teams find the back of the net with three ending 1-0.

Rotherham United Team News

Clark Robertson (groin) and Darren Potter (Achilles) are doubts while Sean Raggett (back) will not be back before Christmas.
