Nottingham Forest vs Reading Match Preview

Forest will be looking to bounce back from a second successive defeat going down to a 2-1 home loss to Hull.  The expected goals data suggests it was harsh on Forest as a draw would have been a more accurate reflection of their performance.

At the City Ground, the Tricky Trees saw their four-game unbeaten run coming with that defeat to Hull which was only their second at their own place.  The East Midlands are struggling for goals at their place with just four in their last four.

Reading continued their good start under Mark Bowen as a point at QPR (in a 2-2 draw) makes it four from two under the Welshman.  They sit in 20th spot which is two places and two points above the relegation zone.

The hosts are the most likely winners of this encounter but given their disappointing showings in the last two and the slight improvements Reading have made under Mark Bowen it is probably best not to be siding with Forest.

Both teams have netted around 70% of their goals in the second-half so backing this to be the highest scoring 45 minute make sense.  In addition, the East Midlands have been ahead at half-time in just one home match this campaign while four of the seven the Royals have played on the road have been level at the break which makes a half-time draw a solid bet.
