    Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday to both score at City Ground

    The recent general feeling of avoiding backing Nottingham Forest seems to have been vindicated in recent weeks as Nottingham Forest have managed to capture just 1 win out of their last 5 matches, and this has resulted in Forest dropping down to 5th place in the Championship standings.

    Saturday’s hosts face another tricky fixture this weekend when Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday make their way to the City Ground, and as Forest have produced mixed results on home turf in recent weeks, recording wins against Brentford and Derby County but also losing to Hull City and Cardiff City, it looks best to avoid backing them again here.

    With the likes of Brentford and Saturday’s opponents, Sheffield Wednesday, knocking on the door of the play-off pack, Nottingham Forest really need a result from this clash but inconsistent results once again threaten their play-off spot.

    Forest will therefore be looking to the likes of forwards Grabban (10 goals) and Lolley (3 goals) to re-ignite their challenge for a top six finish against The Owls this Saturday.

    Sheffield Wednesday moved up into 8th place on the Championship table thanks to a point away from home in their midweek 1-1 draw at Derby County which extended Wednesday’s unbeaten run to 4 matches in the Championship under new manager, Garry Monk.

    Recent wins against Charlton Athletic 3-1 away and a 2-1 home win against Brentford have helped fire The Owls to within touching distance of the play-off pack along with a point against Monk’s former club, Birmingham City in a 1-1 draw.

    However, before we get too carried away, Sheffield Wednesday’s results away from home have been less convincing than those on home turf at Hillsborough as The Owls have registered just 1 win out of their last 6 matches, which came in the shape of the aforementioned 3-1 win at Charlton.

    Having suffered defeats at Hull City, Blackburn Rovers and West Brom in recent times, it may be best to avoid the straight win market on Sheffield Wednesday too, but with 8 of Wednesday’s 11 away matches resulting in both teams scoring, this looks the best option for this clash.

    Both Nottingham Forest (at home) and Sheffield Wednesday (away) have produced mixed results and can’t be trusted, but both should at least score here today.
