The Robins set to frustrate Tricky Trees at the City Ground

On Tuesday evening, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City meet at the City Ground, in a game that could prove to be pivotal in the fight for automatic promotion and the play-offs in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest still have hopes of sealing automatic promotion to the Premier League, but time is running out in the race for the top two spots. The team from the Midlands are fourth place in the table, seven points behind West Brom who occupy the final play-off spot.

A recent inconsistent run of league form has hampered Sabri Lamouchi’s team’s chances of going up automatically, as they have won just once in their last four games. That is certainly not the form of a team that earns automatic promotion at the end of the season.

A 3-1 home win over Huddersfield last time out ended a three-game winless streak in the Championship for the team from the Midlands.

Forest have struggled for wins at home of late in the second tier, as the victory over Huddersfield ended a three-game winless run on home soil in the league too. They desperately need a win in this clash.

While Forest are trying to avoid the play-offs, the visitors are hoping to squeeze into the top-six at the end of the campaign. Lee Johnson’s team heads into this match on the back of a seven-game winless in the Championship, having suffered five defeats. The poor run has left the Robins five points outside the play-off spots.

With just seven games remaining, the top-six may be a bridge too far for the visitors. City have not won in their last four away matches in the second tier, suffering three defeats in the process.

Forebet predicts that both teams will end this game with frustration, as the prediction is that this game will end in a low-scoring draw.
