Nottingham – Millwall Preview

  • Hovering just three points above the relegation zone, Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in five league matches and are seemingly back to form. Including a 1-0 FA Cup win last time out, each of Forest’s last six matches have produced under 2.5 total goals, within which the β€˜Reds’ have kept four clean sheets, and seven in total this season.
  • The β€˜Reds’ have scored over 1.5 goals in just three of their last ten home matches, and poetically, they have netted twice or more in just one of their last seven competitive home H2Hs (90 mins only). Whilst Forest won just one of those H2Hs (90mins: D2, L4), team boss Chris Hughton is unbeaten against the visitors (W3, D2).
  • Millwall are just four points above their hosts – but they are undoubtedly improving, having drawn the most matches in the league this season (W5, D11, L6). The Lions’ league matches to date have produced fractionally less goals than Forest’s, at an average of 1.82 per-game.
  • Scoring first in three straight H2Hs, Millwall have a chance to record back-to-back away H2H wins here for just the third time since 1993/94. Additionally, visiting manager Gary Rowett faces his most-played opposition here (W4, D6, L3), and whilst he holds a four-game unbeaten record at Forest (W1, D3), that 75% draw rate is another stat which hints towards a stalemate unfolding.
  • Players to watch: Lewis Grabban (FOR) netted a penalty in his last league match, and has four career goals against former club Millwall. A towering presence as ever, Matt Smith (MIL) has five H2H goals after netting a hat-trick here last season – unsurprisingly, four such goals were headers!
  • Hot stat: Both teams have netted in 60.0% of the last 35 H2Hs across all competitions.
