Preston v Nottingham Forest Match Preview
Preston made it six games unbeaten and four victories from these six with an impressive 3-1 defeat of Norwich. They had a goal each from Ben Davies, Sean Maguire and Paul Gallagher (pen) to thanks although keeper Declan Rudd was named man of the match.
At Deepdale, the Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last four though three of these finished all-square. Nine of their last ten in the league at their own place have seen both teams find the back of the net.
Nottingham Forest made it seven points from their last four fixtures with a useful 2-2 road draw at West Brom. Ryan Yates and an own-goal helped them claim a point and they sit ninth five points from Middlesbrough in sixth.
Away from the City Ground, the Tricky Trees are winless in the last seven though four of these have ended in draws. They have blanked in four of their last six Championship fixtures on the road.
It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here as Preston are deserved favourites and are in good form. Forest though will be tricky opponents and as such I recommended looking at the side markets to find the value.
Both teams score over 60% of their goals in the second-half so backing this to be the highest scoring half makes sense while both teams don’t have much to gain from a draw so back over 1.5 second-half goals.
