Coventry vs Nottingham Forest Predictions 


Coventry return to the Ricoh arena after a two-year absence. Both sides finished last season well and have retained most of their squad, which is why I'm tipping a draw.

Head to Head


Nottingham Forest have a 47-19 record against Coventry with 28 draws in 94 encounters. 

Forest did the double over Coventry last season, defeating them 2-1 on both occasions. 

Forest were forced to come from behind in their last meeting. Midfielder Lewis Grabban equalised in the 53rd minute, before a late own goal from City defender Michael Rose gave Forest the win.

Coventry Form


Coventry did not pick up a win from their six pre-season matches. 

They failed to score in matches against Cheltenham and Mansfield, of which they lost 2-0 and 1-0 respectively. 

An improved performance followed against Premier League outfit Wolverhampton. New recruit Martyn Waghorn converted a penalty in the 57th minute in his side’s 2-1 defeat.

The Sky Blues finished last season strongly and maintained an impressive record at home to finish 16th.

Coventry Injuries & Team News


Coventry have looked to strengthen their forward line in the off-season through the purchase of ex-Derby Country striker, Martyn Waghorn. 

The club retained most of its squad, with the only notable absence being forward Maxime Biamou, who was released at the end of last season.

Full-back Brandon Mason requires hamstring surgery and is expected to be sidelined for several weeks.

Nottingham Forest Form


After a bitter end to last season, Forest have looked to start on the right foot in the pre-season. 

Chris Hughton’s side have won three of four friendlies, while matches against Aston Villa and Burnley were cancelled. 

Winger Alexander Mighten and midfielder Jack Colback scored in a 2-0 win over Port Vale. Strikers Lyle Taylor and Cafu then found form in Forest’s match over Northampton, where they also picked up a 2-0 win.  

Nottingham Forest Injuries & Team News


Forest lost winger Sammy Ameobi to Middlesbrough, while midfielders Yuri Ribeiro and Samba Sow were both released. 

The club have recruited US international goalkeeper Ethan Horvath from Club Brugge, who will compete with Brice Samba for the first team spot.

Forest have several injuries to manage ahead of the season. Defender Tyler Blackett is expected to miss an extra four weeks due to a groin problem. 

Centre-back Tobias Figueiredo has missed most of pre-season with a calf injury, while forward Nuno Da Costa will miss the opening round with a groin injury.

Verdict

Coventry finished last season well and return to the Ricoh Arena. Forest enjoyed a solid away record last season and have rarely lost to the Sky Blues in recent years, which is why I'm backing a draw.
