Nottingham Forest to Win

Fresh from picking up four points from their last two games in the Premier League, Nottingham Forest head to Blackpool this weekend armed with plenty of confidence and the Reds are favourites to enjoy some cup joy against the Seasiders on Saturday. Blackpool are winless in five games and when they last hosted Forest for a Championship fixture back in April, they were thumped 4-1. Backing the visitors looks like the smartest move again here.

Both Teams to Score

While wins have been elusive for Blackpool since the campaign’s restart, the Seasiders have been regular scorers in the final third, indeed, both teams have notched in each of their last four assignments and with their passionate supporters pushing them on, the hosts could impact the scoresheet again on Saturday. Forest meanwhile, have registered five times in four matches since the campaign’s resumption, and they have what it takes to slice through Blackpool’s defence this weekend. Bettors should consider a stake on BTTS again as a result.

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest will be without the services of Jesse Lingard, Moussa Niakhate, Giulian Biancone, Omar Ricards and Cheikhou Kouyate this weekend. Forest won 1-0 at Southampton in midweek and they could rotate their team a little for Saturday's game.

Player to Watch – Charlie Patino

Highly-rated midfielder Charlie Patino is spending the season on loan with Blackpool from Premier League giants Arsenal and the 19-year-old will be itching to pit his wits against top tier side Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
