Nottingham Forest vs Brighton & Hove Albion

, KO: 15:00 Nov 25, 2023, The City Ground
Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton & Hove Albion are aiming to snap a lengthy winless run as they travel to the City Ground for a Premier League clash on Saturday. The Seagulls have been plagued by too many draws lately and with Forest also looking off colour lately, both teams could be set to cancel each other out.

Nottingham Forest are coming off a 3-2 defeat at West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. They came from behind to lead midway though the second half thanks to efforts from Anthony Elanga and Taiwo Awoniyi but still went on to concede the winner.

Things have been a bit difficult for Nottingham Forest, who have picked up just one win from their last eight matches. They are currently in the bottom half of the standings and while there is no present relegation danger, manager Steve Cooper will be keen to get things back on track.

Home form is often the foundation of a solid campaign and Nottingham forest are yet to taste defeat in front of their fans having picked up two wins and three draws from five matches. They have also struggled to keep things tight at the back with just one clean sheet in five matches at the City Ground.

Brighton & Hove Albion were one of the surprise teams in the Premier League last season as they secured a Europa League finish. However, the Seagulls have found it difficult matching last season's feats as they appear to be struggling to balance European engagements with their domestic campaign.

Things have been particularly rough for Brighton in recent weeks as they are winless in their last six Premier League matches. Five of those outings have ended in draws, including a 1-1 scoreline with Sheffield United last time out in the Premier League.

Brighton’s defensive frailties have been well documented this season as they are yet to keep a single clean sheet so far. Roberto De Zerbi’s men have also conceded nine goals in their last three Premier League away matches.

Players to watch
