BACKING Nottingham Forest away from home can be bad for your wealth but maybe they have turned the corner.

Billy Davies' men missed out on promotion last season by not winning enough games on the road and it's been a repeat performance this campaign -until last time out.

Forest claimed their second away win of the season with a sizzling 2-0 success at Cardiff and that could be the turning point.

We'll find out tonight if Forest can build on that result when they head for the Walkers Stadium and a meeting with a Leicester side trying to mount a push for the play-offs under Sven Goran Eriksson.

A four-match unbeaten run was ended by defeat by in-form Bristol City but Eriksson has strengthened by bringing in Curtis Davies, Darius Vassell, Chris Kirkland and Roman Bednar.

Forest have added Marcus Tudgay and may have made one of the loan signings of the season in Aaron Lennon if the Arsenal and Wales midfielder has recovered fully from his broken leg.

It's a tough one to call but Forest, a biggest 11-4 with William Hill, could win and will certainly avoid defeat if they repeat their Cardiff show.

Leicester are a best 23-20 with Stan James and the draw pays 12-5 with Ladbrokes among others.

For first scorer I'd take a chance on Lewis McGugan who has been banging in spectacular strike after another. The Forest midfielder is 9-1 at Paddy Power.

With attacking new boys such as Ramsay and Bednar on display there could be plenty of goals and both teams to score pays 10-11 with Chandler.

This type of bet is proving very popular and well done to anyone who targeted the Premier League at the weekend. All 20 sides netted for the first time for several seasons. It was a 400-1 shot with Ladbrokes on their Goals Rush coupon and bigger with firms such as Betfred online.


  • Leicester v Forest both teams to score (10-11, Chandler)
