Nottingham Forest vs Millwall Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Nottingham Forest continue their quest for promotion as they host Millwall in an English Championship fixture at the City Ground. Forest are solid at home and with Lewis Grabban finally back among the goals, they should have too much for a struggling Millwall team.

Nottingham Forest Form

Nottingham Forest are coming off a 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough in their previous Championship fixture. Forest will be disappointed not to build on Ryan Yates first half opener as they needed a late equaliser from Lewis Grabban to salvage a point.

Forest remain in the hunt for a playoff finish and head into Friday’s match unbeaten in their last four fixtures. Sabri Lamouchi’s men have seen some impressive results at home, claiming a 2-0 victory over Leeds and beating Luton Town 3-1.

Victories over Blackburn and Wigan are also among their recent results at the City Ground. They often maintain a solid defence at home having kept clean sheets in two of their last three home matches. 

Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest have no major injuries or suspensions ahead of Friday’s match. Striker Nuno Da Costa is in contention to feature having already made his return with the U-23s.

Millwall Form

Millwall played out a draw in their last Championship fixture as they were held 1-1 at home by Bristol City. They fought back from a goal down with Matt Smith grabbing the equaliser six minutes after the restart. 

The Lions are in the middle of a slump at the moment having claimed just one win from their last nine matches. Gary Rowett’s men have also failed to score in two of their last three matches and suffered a 1-0 defeat at Wigan in their previous away fixture.

Millwall News

Millwall are without midfielders Shaun Williams and Ben Thompson who are both sidelined with injury. They have an otherwise fully fit squad for Friday’s match.
