Nottingham and Aston Villa are neighbours in the standings, respectively eighth and ninth position. The goal for both sides is to be in the playoffs, while the points deficit at this time looks like can be overcame.
Nottingham earned just two points in the previous four away games, but their performance at home is phenomenal. Successively on own terrain were defeated Wigan (3-1), Derby County (1-0) and Hull City (3-0). Nottingham are defending better in front of their fans, conceding just 15 goals at home from overall 40.
Aston Villa is in crisis since the start of the year, and this threw away the team from Top 6 in the standings. In the previous two rounds were achieved two wins – over Derby County (4-0) and Birmingham (1-0), while during the last 14 fixtures Villans had just two wins. The games at home of Aston Villa are a goal spectacle, but the same cannot be said for their away fixtures.
The teams look equal, but the home ground factor makes Nottingham the favourites in this fixture. I will back Double Chance: Nottingham Forest or Draw and Under 3.5 Goals, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
