Nottingham Forest vs Fulham Prediction: Team to Win, Form

Both Nottingham Forest and Fulham are coming off draws at the weekend so this promises to be a tense affair with vital points on the line, particularly for the home side.

Forest are currently one position adrift of the relegation zone, but that’s due to goal difference as they have accumulated the same amount of points as Luton in 19th.

Fulham are still in with an outside chance of qualifying for Europe, but they will need to put in much better performances than they managed against Sheffield Utd on Saturday in their eight games remaining this campaign.

They have won all three of their Premier League fixtures against Nottingham Forest by an aggregate score of 10-2.

Current Form

Nottingham Forest’s current form

Forest have drawn two games in a row 1-1 against Luton and Crystal Palace, and although they didn’t lose, these are the types of games they need to be winning to put distance between themselves and the bottom three. A ruthless streak is required in front of goal.

Fulham’s current form

Fulham impressively dispatched Tottenham 3-0 in the middle of March but they were way below par against Sheffield Utd in the 3-3 draw at the weekend.

They had to rely on two goals in the 86th and 93rd minute to claim a point at Bramall Lane.

Team News

A huge loss for Forest recently has been the unavailability of striker Taiwo Awoniyi, who is expected to remain absent for the Fulham game, with Nuno Tavares also on the sidelines.

Nuno Espirito Santo remains hopeful that Willy Boly could be passed fit, though.

Marco Silva, meanwhile, has no new injuries issues in his squad, with all major stars available for selection.
