Bitesize Prediction: Nottingham Forest vs Coventry – 06/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Nottingham Forest win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to try and find a route back into the play-off places, Nottingham Forest will welcome Coventry to the City Ground on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, marking their return from March’s international break with a stellar display on the road, Nottingham Forest will be desperate to keep up that momentum here. Eventually clinching an eye-catching 4-1 romp away at Blackpool, the one-time European champions have only continued to shine since bringing Steve Cooper to the City Ground. While the Reds might have eventually seen Premier League giants Liverpool end their remarkable FA Cup run last month, the former Swansea boss has seen his high-flying squad skyrocket their way up the Championship table. With it no secret that they have their sights set on securing a play-off spot this season, Wednesday’s hosts have won each of their last six second-tier contests on the spin, a run highlighted by a 3-1 victory against QPR prior to the international break.

As for the visitors, while Coventry might have marked their own return to action with a lively 2-2 draw against Blackburn on home soil, the Sky Blues are in the midst of an extended rut. Although some in the Championship might have tipped Mark Robins’ side as a shock play-off contender earlier in the season, they have since come tumbling down the table. Almost finding themselves sat in second-tier limbo, Wednesday’s guests have managed to win just one of their previous seven outings, a run that stems back to February 22nd. With their recent issues highlighted by a 2-0 loss against relegation outsiders Hull last month, Coventry should be in for another tough test here. Suffering a 2-1 defeat the last time they made the trip to the City Ground, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
