Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United Preview, Championship, 2nd December 2016

Nottingham Forest head into this game with confidence restored having destroyed Barnsley 5-2 last time out, that win made it two on the bounce and it is definitely starting to look like Nottingham Forest have finally started to gel as a team and both the players and fans will be confident of keeping their winning run going in this match on Friday night.

Newcastle United head into the game having suffered a bit of a shock defeat in their latest league match played when losing at home against Blackburn Rovers 1-0 and having been dumped out of the league cup by Hull City, the current league leaders face a difficult task in this game going up against a much rejuvenated Nottingham Forest side.

Nottingham Forest Team News :

The hosts have almost a full squad available for this match but will be without the services of both Matty Fryatt and Dani Pinillos who are receiving treatment for long term injuries.

Newcastle United Team News :

The visitors will be without the services of Rob Elliot, Massadi Haidara and Daryl Murphy for this game as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

Newcastle United have managed to secure 32 wins overall, with an impressive 14 of those victories recorded away from home and with the club having had a great season so far, the visitors will obviously fancy their chances in this game.

86 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 35 matches played between the two clubs at the City Ground and this provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.46.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to suggest that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored in this game and Total Goals 2 or 3 looks a good pick for this game on the goals betting market.

Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United Match Betting Odds Market

Nottingham Forest are playing much better in recent weeks and with home advantage and their fans fully behind them the hosts do look a bit overpriced at their current odds available of 4/1 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Match Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account.

The Draw is a current a best price of 29/10 with BetVictor – Bet £10 & Receive a £30 Free Bets when Registering a New Account and could be a sensible cover bet what with very little between them on the recent form statistics.

Newcastle United are the clear favourites to win this game despite their latest league match ending up in a 1-0 defeat at home against Blackburn Rovers, but for me the visitors look too short at their current best price of 4/5 with BetFred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets when Registering a New Account.

Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Forest have certainly started to look a much better team in their previous two matches played than they have done for a while and with home advantage they do look good value here at their current odds available.

The hosts managed to steer an impressive five goals past Barnsley away from home in their last league match and I fully expect them to score at least a couple in this match.

Newcastle United are the current league leaders of the championship and will be looking to bounce back from their recent two defeats suffered in the past week.

A 1-0 defeat at home against Blackburn Rovers in the league was followed by elimination from the league cup after losing a penalty shoot-out away against Hull City, but the visitors have a good record in this fixture over the years and will be quietly confident about their chances.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Over 2.5 Goals as with both sides having had little trouble scoring goals of late, I am expecting this game to see at least a few bulge the back of the nets in what promises to be a very exciting match.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Newcastle United striker Dwight Gale to score the first goal of this game as he is having no problem finding the target this season with an already impressive tally of 13 goals scored and he will punish any mistakes the Forest defence make.
