Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley Match Preview
Nottingham Forest became the first team to beat Swansea this season with a 1-0 success last time out that stretched their unbeaten run to six. The East Midlands outfit have made a decent start to the season with three victories, three draws and one defeat in seven.
At the City Ground, the Tricky Trees have made a mixed start with a victory (over Birmingham), a draw (with Preston) and a defeat (to West Brom). All five goals they have netted here this season have come from different players.
Barnsley lost 2-0 at home to Leeds in their previous fixture which was a third defeat in their last four and stretched the winless run to six. The Yorkshire side are the lowest scorers in the division having netted just four times.
Away from Oakwell, the Tykes have struggled losing at Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham while coming out with a goalless draw at Wigan. The Yorkshire outfit are still awaiting their first goal on the road this season.
The home side are the strong favourites to win the fixture and it is hard to see past them given the gulf in class between the sides. Given the visitors struggle for goals backing a Forest win and under 3.5 goals looks the best bet with an interest on the same result and under 2.5 goals also appealing.
