Stoke vs Nottingham Forest Match Preview
For the second successive game Stoke were pegged back from ahead to draw and for third match in a row they shared the points. They have 41 points so should not be dragged into the relegation battle but it has not been a great start for Nathan Jones.
At the BET365 Stadium, the Potters have won just one of their last five and that came against high-flying Leeds. They have blanked in three of their last five in front of their own fans.
Nottingham Forest will be full of confidence after beating local rivals Derby 1-0 on Monday night thanks to a Yohan Benalouane goal. They are ninth and are three off Bristol City and still have hopes of the play-offs.
Away from the City Ground, the Tricky Trees have drawn their last two but are now eight without a victory. Seven of the last nine the East Midlands outfit have played on the road have gone under 2.5 goals.
Despite struggles on the road I think Forest look the bet here against a Stoke side who are short of confidence and form. The visitors meanwhile have this in abundance following a 1-0 victory over Derby on Monday and I like them in the draw no bet market.
Stoke have blanked in four of their last six while Forest have kept clean sheets in their last two so backing Forest to win and no in the both teams to score market looks value.
