Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview
Nottingham Forest were held in midweek to a 1-1 home draw with Middlesbrough having gifted the Teesiders an 81st minute penalty. It means the East Midlands outfit are without a win in three and have won just one of their last five.
At the City Ground, the Tricky Trees have seen six of the last seven here have gone under 2.5 goals with three of them going under 1.5. They have managed no victory in their last two here and just one in the last four.
Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 at Derby in midweek having taken the lead through a Steven Fletcher goal but were also undone by a late penalty. It stretched their unbeaten run to four (two of them finishing all-square) and each of their last seven seeing both teams net.
Away from Hillsborough the Owls are unbeaten in their last two but have managed to win just one of their last six. Steven Fletcher is in good goalscoring form on the road with the Scot grabbing four in his last three on the road.
Both teams to score looks the obvious approach in a tricky looking game to call when one things is clear both teams have goals in them. The last seven Sheffield Wednesday games have seen both teams score while each of the last two for Forest have done the same.
The hosts have scored over 70% of their goals after the break while the visitors have scored around 60% of theirs so backing more goals to come in the second half makes sense.
