One win in fourteen games has left Nottingham Forest in a difficult situation and a four-points deduction means that Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are in the drop zone. While the club have lodged an appeal, the team have to focus on accruing more points and the bookies think there’s a reasonable chance of victory.

Forest are generally quite robust at the City Ground, beating West Ham 2-0 in mid-February and they were somewhat unfortunate to lose to Liverpool at the beginning of March. They came within a whisker of beating Luton Town before the international break, although they might have their work cut out against opponents with a new manager.

Oliver Glasner is now in charge of Crystal Palace and the team claimed a straightforward 3-0 victory against Burnley before a solid performance at Tottenham where they were able to take the lead before losing 3-1. They were then able to comprehensively outplay Luton before a 1-1 draw.

This match is something of a must-win fixture for Nottingham Forest and the first game they’ll play since that points deduction. On this basis, it could be worth backing them to win 1-0 if you’re keen to side with them. Alternatively, you could consider Under 2.5 Goals or even Under 1.5 Goals if you think a tight encounter could be on the cards.
