Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest

, KO: 19:45 Oct 19, 2021, Ashton Gate
Nottingham Forest

Bristol Rovers have been on a rough patch lately but look set to get their campaign back on track when they host Nottingham Forest in a midweek English Championship fixture. Forest have been resurgent in recent weeks and can hold out for a draw at Ashton Gate.

Bristol Rovers were beaten 2-0 at home by Bournemouth in their previous Championship fixture. They were second best for much of the encounter, struggling to create chances and finishing with just two attempts on target.

It has been an erratic campaign for Bristol City, who are sitting just outside the top 10. Nigel Pearson’s men have claimed just four wins with as many draws and defeats from their opening 12 matches this season.

Bristol City are winless at home since January while three of their four draws this season have come at Ashton Gate. They continue to struggle defensively and have conceded in their last six Championship matches.

Nottingham Forest head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 home victory over Blackpool last time out in the Championship. Brennan Johnson’s early opener was cancelled out by the visitors before Lewis Grabban struck the winner midway through the second half.

After failing to win any of their opening seven matches, Nottingham Forest have looked a different side since manager Steve Cooper took charge. They are unbeaten in their last five Championship matches and are just three points off the top 10.

Nottingham Forest have also impressed on their recent travels and are unbeaten in their last four away matches. They still need to tighten up at the back and have conceded in three of their last four Championship matches.

How the bookies view it

The bookies appear to be split on this one with Bristol City priced at 8/5 to win by SBK while Vbet is offering 31/16 for a Nottingham Forest victory. A draw is set at odds of 21/10 by SBK.

Head to head

Nottingham Forest have a 14-13 edge with 16 draws from 43 previous matches against Bristol City. The last three meetings at Aston Gate have ended in draws, including a 0-0 scoreline in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Players to watch

Chris Martin and Andreas Weimann have formed a potent attacking partnership for Bristol Rovers with both men scoring four goals each this season. Unibet has Weimann at 11/4 to score anytime while also offering 23/10 on Martin in the same market.

Lewis Grabban will be the one to watch for Nottingham Forest as he looks to add to his five Championship goals this season. The striker netted the winner last time out against Blackpool and could be backed to find the net at 43/20 with Unibet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Bristol City have seen BTTS Yes in two of their last three home matches and a similar outcome could be on the cards at 19/20 with Sport Nation. There have been over 2.5 goals in Nottingham Forest’s last three Championship matches and bet365 is offering 13/10 for a repeat.

Both teams have scored more goals before the break in their recent matches so the first half could be tipped as the highest scoring half at 23/10 with Paddy Power.
