The last two unbeaten matches temporarily helped Nottingham Forest escape the group holding the red light. However, with only 1 point more than the dangerous area, it is clear that the City Ground team has a lot of work to do in the near future. The next round, to stay at home and just have to welcome a downhill Birmingham in form. The opportunity for Nottingham Forest to prolong the sublimation cycle is extremely bright.
Nottingham Forest – First Division England
In the UK First Division, Nottingham Forest is a team that is highly appreciated in terms of ability. Even last season, they had 70 points and ranked 7th in the final standings. Even Nottingham Forest is only out of the group with tickets to the promotion play-off stage because it is inferior in terms of sub-stats. Right now, however, Nottingham Forest is off to an extremely poor start. This team is currently in 20th place on the standings of the English First Division with 17 points after 20 rounds. Their distance to the group holding the red light is only 1 point and the relegation battle will be extremely difficult in the next stage. However, there were positive signs in the playing style of Nottingham Forest. The proof is, the City Ground team has just won 2-0 over Sheffield Wed and 1 draw 1-1 when facing Millwall. Home field is also a great advantage for Nottingham Forest in this match. Remember that Nottingham Forest is unbeaten in the last 5 times to host Birmingham at home and they have won 3 of them. Not to mention that Nottingham Forest also maintained an unbeaten record in the recent 6/8 arrivals.
Birmingham – First Division England
Birmingham struggled last season and finished in 20th place with 50 points. Even though they were only 2 points ahead of the dropping group and fortunately, they successfully survived at the end of the season. Things are only getting a little better this season, but Birmingham’s performance has clearly not satisfied fans yet. Currently, Birmingham is ranked 17th in the rankings with 22 points. In particular, the specific achievements they have earned are 5 wins, 7 draws and 8 defeats. The biggest problem with Birmingham at the moment is the form of the game, because the last 3 consecutive appearances they are empty handed. Not to mention Birmingham lost in the last 3 away matches. In addition, 5 recent confrontations between 2 teams, there are 4 times the home team wins. Therefore, the hope for Birmingham’s points this match is narrowing.
