Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest Match Preview

Cardiff saw their seven-game unbeaten run come to an end at the weekend as they went down 2-0 away to Stoke.   It was the first time in seven matches that the Welsh outfit had failed to net and only the third in the last 18 league games.

At the Cardiff City Stadium, the Bluebirds are eight without a defeat though five of the last six here have finished all-square.  Callum Paterson has grabbed two goals in his last three Championship appearances in front of his own fans.

Nottingham Forest saw their winless run stretched to three and made it successive draws as they were held at home by QPR at the weekend.  It was the second in three games the East Midlands outfit have failed to net and they have just five goals in their last five.

Away from the City Ground, the Tricky Trees are winless in their last two though have tasted defeat just once in their last five.  The last five league goals that they have bagged on the road have come from five different players.

A draw is unlikely to suit either side in their hunt for promotion but both teams might have to settle for a share of the points here.  Five of the last six at this ground have ended in a draw while five of the last nine (including each of the last two) Forest have played have finished all-square.

Forest have blanked in two of their last three while Cardiff barely created anything at the weekend so look to enhance the price on the draw by taking that result and the game to have under 2.5 goals which covers the game ending goalless or 1-1.
