Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Nottingham Forest picked up their second from their last three with a comfortable 3-0 home defeat of Hull at the weekend. It means that they sit just two points behind their East Midlands rivals Derby who are in sixth.
At the City Ground, the Tricky Trees have won each of their last four netting nine times in total and conceding just two. Forest have netted five times in the last 15 minutes of these matches.
Aston Villa made it back-to-back league victories as a Jack Grealish give them a 1-0 victory over local rivals Birmingham. The result means they are up into ninth and just four from Derby in sixth.
Away from Villa Park, Villa have won just one of their previous though that did come last time out on the road. Their last four on the road in the league have produced a total of just four goals.
Nottingham Forest are playing well and are narrow favourites for this fixture between two sides showing good form of late. I could not bring myself to oppose either side here so would look elsewhere for the value.
These two teams combined for ten last time out and with both having firepower at their disposal I like over 2.5 goals and perhaps a small interest in the over 3.5 goals.
