Nottingham Forrest welcome the visitors Blackburn Rovers in the English Championship – Round 42. The match will be held on Saturday, April, 13th, at the City Ground (Nottingham).
Featuring losses in 2 latest rounds, the hosting Nottingham Forrest have practically deprived themselves of the playoffs. Theoretically, they still can manage the 8 points they run behind the 6th Bristol City in 5 rounds, but this is hardly doable in practice. Though theoretical, chances are there, so, Forrest will not possibly miss those at home.

The visiting Blackburn Rovers just play the season out. They don’t hope for the playoffs – the handicap is 15 points, – and they are not threatened by relegation – there is an 11-point buffer. In fact, the side ceased to compete long ago. In 12 latest rounds, they conceded 9 times and attained only 7 points. For some reason, Rovers won Derby County in the last round, thus having reduced their chances for the playoffs. The win was registered at home though. On the road, the visitors conceded in 11 matches of 20. Of 6 recent outings, they drawed only in 1. 4 Rovers’ latest trips were losing.
The hosts’ win seems likely here. Forrest will probably manage to attain a victory. However, we’d better suggest predicting their goals. Rovers allowed 63 goals in the league, of which 44 were missed in 20 outings. They were netted 2+ goals in 14 clashes away. Forrest scored over 1 goal in 4 of 6 latest home encounters. The sides’ meeting in Blackburn registered a 2:2 draw. So, even away, Nottingham made more than 1 goal. They have some chances to reach the playoffs, thus, will play their best to do so. Most likely, the homeside will win in the head-to-head concerned. If they don’t, they will certainly net 2 goals to one of the leakiest defenses in the division.
Prediction for the match: Nottingham Forrest to score over 1.5 goal.
