Tip Nottingham Forest - Swansea
Nottingham Forest remain in trouble towards the bottom of the Championship. They start the weekend in 20th place and host a Swansea City side that are fourth in the league. Forest are only three points above the relegation zone, though that is an improvement since the arrival of Chris Hughton as manager. They'd climbed out of the bottom three with wins over Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers. Both are in the bottom four and the two wins came at home. Forest have slumped again since those wins, losing at Barnsley and Bournemouth, both by a 2-0 scoreline. Home form has been totally inconsistent. Two wins, two draws, two defeats, seven goals scored and seven conceded. Four of the last six home league fixtures has seen under 2.5 goals scored. Those two recent home league victories did at least end a run of seven without a win. That includes a 2-2 home draw with Swansea City towards the end of last season.
Swansea City made it into the promotion play-offs last season due to the late season collapse of Forest. They lost in the semi-finals to Brentford but are doing well again this season. Fourth place sees them only three points behind the second automatic promotion spot. They would be closer though but for a run of just one win their last four league games. Their most recent game was on Wednesday evening, having to come from behind to rescue a home point against Sheffield Wednesday. While 14 points have been won at home, only nine have been earned on the road. They have no wins in their last four away league games. It's been a reasonably tough fixture list though, having to take on Bristol City and top of the table Norwich City. Swansea had drawn three away matches 1-1 before losing to the league leaders 1-0. Each of their last seven away league and cup games have had under 2.5 goals scored in them. Another low scoring game looms here,
