Bournemouth 3/4 to beat Nottingham Forest in Tuesday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Bournemouth win

Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport

Looking to continue on their promotion charge in midweek, Bournemouth will welcome Nottingham Forest to an empty Vitality on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to mount a stunning comeback on the South Coast over the weekend, Bournemouth came from 2-0 down at half-time as they clinched a thrilling 4-2 win against Reading on home soil. Seen by many across the Championship as a leading contender to book a Premier League return at the first attempt, the Cherries have now managed to secure back-to-back victories and have really shown their clinical edge in the final third. Forging a route back into the automatic spots and smelling a real chance to climb to the top of the table, it should also be noted that Bournemouth are unbeaten in each of their six second-tier contests at the Vitality so far this season. Winning four of those appearances and watching the likes of Dominic Solanke bag a brace on Saturday, the Cherries will be seeking a similar statement in midweek.

As for the visitors, while Nottingham Forest might have managed to bag back-to-back victories against Championship returners Wycombe and Coventry, the Reds certainly came crashing back down to earth over the weekend. Still firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, new Head Coach Chris Hughton saw his side hit with a sluggish 2-0 defeat away at Barnsley and the former Brighton boss will know that his side hold what is a concerning record on the road. Remarkably, continuing on from their famous collapse at the end of the extended 2019/2020 campaign, Forest have managed to record just a single Championship win away from the City Ground since February. Facing a tough test to the South Coast on Tuesday, we’re backing a home victory.
