Today's Betting Tips for Southampton vs Nottingham Forest

Southampton are hoping to avoid a sixth-straight Premier League defeat when they host relegation rivals Nottingham Forest on Wednesday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Match Result – Draw

Nottingham Forest performed brilliantly to earn a point at home to Chelsea last time out and though their away record makes for grim reading, the Reds should be able to avoid defeat when they visit an out-of-sorts Southampton side on Wednesday evening The Saints have switched managers, though results have yet to improve and their loss at Fulham on New Year’s Eve was their fifth on the bounce in the league. With the picture looking increasingly bleak for Southampton, we recommend siding with Forest in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Nathan Jones has yet to see his new Southampton charges score more than once in a game and with their attacking play lacking inspiration, we don’t expect the Saints to improve their lot against Nottingham Forest. The visitors meanwhile, have scored just once on the road in total since their promotion, though they showed enough gumption at the back against Chelsea in their last test to suggest they can dig in to deny the struggling Saints chances. The factors here are a recipe for a low-scoring tussle and a stake on under 2.5 goals could be the way to go here.

Southampton vs Nottingham Forest Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday’s Premier League relegation six-pointer between Southampton and Nottingham Forest below.

Southampton

Valentino Livramento, Juan Larios and Theo Walcott are all listed as injured for Southampton, while keeper Alex McCarthy is a doubt with an ankle sprain. Samuel Edozie should be ok to feature after he suffered from cramp late on against Fulham in the Saints' last game.

Predicted Lineup for Southampton: Bazunu – Lyanco, Bella-Kotchap, Salisu – Maitland-Niles, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi, Walker-Peters – Aribo, Edizoe, Adams

Nottingham Forest

Jesse Lingard has been added to the list of injured Nottingham Forest players alongside Giulian Biancone, Omar Richards, Cheikhou Kouyate and Moussa Niakhate. Forest moved up one place to 18th after their 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea on New Year's Eve.

Predicted Lineup for Nottingham Forest: Henderson – Aurier, Worrall, Boly, Lodi – Yates, Freuler, Mangala – Johson, Awoniyi, Gibbs-White

Player to Watch – Morgan Gibbs-White

Attacking midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White showcased his simmering potential again for Forest with an impactful display against Chelsea on Saturday. The 22-year-old was a constant menace and he was denied a superb goal by the underside of the crossbar in the second half. Gibbs-White is a potential match-winner for Forest, so watch him closely on Wednesday.
