Bitesize Prediction: Blackpool vs Nottingham Forest – 02/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Nottingham Forest draw no bet

Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Hoping to try and find a route back into the play-off places this weekend, Nottingham Forest will make the trip to Blackpool on Saturday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while Blackpool might have only made their Championship return this season, they have continued on an eye-catching run of form throughout the 2021/22 campaign. Last seen heading into March’s international break with a gritty 0-0 stalemate at home against play-off contenders Sheffield United, Neil Critchley’s side have collected 10 points from their last four second-tier matchups. Marking their return to action here sat just two points adrift of breaking into the top-half, Blackpool should also be boosted by their continued success at Bloomfield Road. Including a 1-0 victory against last season’s play-off finalists Swansea, Saturday’s hosts have lost just one of their last seven contests on home soil, a run that stems all the way back to the end of December.

As for the visitors, while Nottingham Forest might have been last seen crashing out of the FA Cup against Premier League giants Liverpool, the Reds have found a stunning run of form under Steve Cooper. Still with their sights set on pinching a play-off spot this season and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat just three points adrift of the top-six, the former Swansea boss should find the mood in his camp at a continued high. Last seen on Championship duties claiming a thrilling victory against QPR at the City Ground, Forest are unbeaten in each of their last eight second-tier outings. Looking to lay down a marker when they make the trip to Bloomfield Road here, they should be boosted by their most recent meeting against Blackpool. When the two sides faced off back in October, the one-time European champions picked up a 2-1 victory.
