Nottingham Forest vs Preston Match Preview
Nottingham Forest are now four unbeaten in the Championship following an impressive 2-1 road success at Fulham last weekend. They are also unbeaten into the next round of the League Cup with a 3-0 success over local rivals Derby.
At the City Ground, the Tricky Trees have won one, lost one in the league but have won each of their last three when looking at all competitions. Joe Lolley has two from his last two home appearances when including the League Cup.
Preston made it back-to-back league victories last weekend as they saw off Sheffield Wednesday by a 2-1 scoreline. They progressed to the next round of the League Cup with a penalties success over Hull following a 2-2 draw.
Away from Deepdale, the Lilywhites have lost both fixtures this season going down on the road to Swansea and Millwall. It continues on their poor travelling form from last season which means they have lost each of the last six.
It is hard to argue with the prices that are on offer which make Forest the favourites as they are the home side and playing well but Preston are no mugs. A better angle of approach is to take the game to have goals as this happened in six of the last seven for North-End. Over 2.5 goals is the main selection but we also recommend a little value selection on over 3.5.
