Two English top flight sides separated by just five points meet this weekend as Wolves host Nottingham Forest.

Wolves hosted one of the new boys in Burnley earlier in the week, looking to end a run of two games without a win in the Premier League. It was not an easy game for Gary O'Neil's side, who took all three points after a narrow 1-0 win, but once again they showed how hard they are to beat at Molieux. The Wanderers are now unbeaten in their last four home games and registered three victories in that spell.

There has been nothing to celebrate for Forest in recent weeks, both at home and away. Steve Cooper's side were looking to end their three-game losing streak when they travelled to Fulham in midweek. The Reds conceded five goals in another defeat and in doing so extended their losing streak to four games. They are also without a win in their last four away games.

Wolves vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips: Both teams to score

As much as Wolves have been good this season, they continue to give teams the opportunity to score goals. The win over Burnley last time out was the first time in 13 games that Gary O'Neil's side kept a clean sheet. Bets on "Both teams to score - yes" have won in twelve of these games.

After starting the season in fine form, Nottingham Forest are now beginning to look like relegation candidates as Steve Cooper's men have conceded at least three goals in three of their last four games. The Reds failed to score in each of their last two matches, but we fancy them to hit the back of the net this weekend as they scored in each of their last two meetings with Wolves.

Wolves team news

Pedro Neto will once again be unavailable this weekend to Wolves head coach Gary O'Neil due to a hamstring injury.

Following the solid defensive display against Burnley last time out, O'Neil isn’t expected to make changes to his starting eleven although Matt Doherty and Boubacar Traore are pushing for starts.

Hwang Hee-chan has been in fine form for the Wanderers this season, netting eight goals in 15 games and should once again partner upfront with Matheus Cunha and Pablo Sarabia who have five goals between them this season.

Nottingham Forest team news

Taiwo Awoniyi has been struggling with a groin injury and Nottingham Forest’s game on Saturday will good too soon for the Nigerian professional but the hosts have no suspensions.

Divock Origi led the line last time out but that position will be taken either by Chris Wood or Morgan Gibbs-White this weekend, while Moussa Niakhaté could replace Felipe in defence.
