Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Rovers Preview

After both left their midweek fixtures with slender defeats, Nottingham Forest looks to inflict Blackburn Rovers' fourth straight league defeat - something not done since two years ago this weekend.

They've played a game more (30) and sit six points adrift of their mid-table visitors in 18th place, quietly hoping to claw their way from a relegation battle during the business months of this campaign.

This is the same Forest side who narrowly missed out on a promotion play-off berth just eight months ago. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips

After holding promotion hopefuls Bournemouth to a goalless draw at the weekend, Forest was undone late on by Connor Roberts' 87th-minute winner as Swansea returned third overnight. 

It would've been a frustrating blow for Chris Hughton's players, who, despite their inconsistencies this term, wanted to avenge a 5-1 hiding they suffered at the Swans' expense in last month's FA Cup fourth-round tie. 

As for Blackburn, it was surprising not to see Liverpool loanee winger Harvey Elliott started at Barnsley on Wednesday. He came on and created Adam Armstrong's 19th league goal of the campaign, reinforcing the notion he should start against an unreliable Forest backline. 

Nottingham Forest vs Blackburn Rovers Correct Score Prediction

Both possess enough quality to win this game, but judging by recent form, it's tough to settle on an outright winner. 

Forest have lost just one of their last five H2H meetings (W2, D2), and Hughton will fancy his chances of outsmarting Tony Mowbray - a head coach he's already beaten thrice in his career. 

Forest have narrowly edged their last two matchups (3-2, 1-0 victories last year) but struggled for regular goals this season. As such, BTTS is my pick.
