Nottingham Forest vs FulhamEnglish Championship, KO: 15:00 Oct 24, 2021, The City Ground
Fulham continue their pursuit of leaders Bournemouth as they travel to the City Ground for an English Championship fixture with Nottingham Forest. The Cottagers appear to be returning to their best form after stuttering slightly in recent weeks and will be confident against Forest, who have surprisingly struggled at home.
Nottingham Forest are one of the form teams in the Championship and have been on a steady rise in recent weeks as they currently sit 14th on the table. They are unbeaten in their last six matches and are now just one point off the top 10.
Steve Cooper's men have won their last four matches, including a 2-1 victory at Bristol City last time out in the Championship. Lyle Taylor struck a late double as they completed a stunning comeback after going behind just before the break.
While Nottingham Forest have improved lately, they remain surprisingly unconvincing at home with just one win at the City Ground this season. They have already been beaten four times on their own turf, including 2-1 defeats to Bournemouth and Blackburn Rovers.
Fulham are now up to second on the table following a 2-0 victory over Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. They were comfortable throughout with goals in each half from Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic sealing the win.
The Cottagers are attempting to navigate their way out of a recent slump and have now won three of their last four Championship matches. Their good form had been driven by the impressive Aleksandar Mitrovic who has 13 goals already this season.
Fulham's defending has been a major headache for manager Marco Silva and their problems at the back appear to have no end in sight. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight Championship matches.
