Cardiff City v Nottingham Forest tips – another Forest bore draw on the cards
Stuart Pearce’s team struggling for goals ahead of Saturday lunchtime clash against Cardiff
October 17th, 2014
Forest were full of goals earlier in the season, beating Reading 4-0 and Fulham 5-3 although opposition teams appear to have gotten wise to the Tricky Trees.
Since that win against the Cottagers, Stuart Pearce’s side have been involved in three consecutive goalless draws before a recent home match against Ipswich Town ended in a 2-2 scoreline.
Forest are still joint-top of the Championship although it’s hard to be confident that they will this Sky-televised encounter considering the Midlands side will face a Cardiff side about to potentially enjoy a new lease of life.
Russell Slade is the latest man to try and improve the fortunes of Cardiff City and he is looking to trim down the squad and generate a feeling of togetherness in the wake of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer failing to get much from this talented squad of players.
Cardiff have actually won three of their five home matches this term although Slade will settle for a hard-earned point against one of the better teams in the division and odds of 5/2 about the game ending all square make plenty of appeal.
Indeed, with City rolling their sleeves up and Forest able to defend manfully at the moment, we like the 10/1 with BetVictor that this match ends with no goals at the final whistle.
The goals have dried up for Britt Assombalonga in the last four games, although the striker still has eight goals for the season and Coral go 6/1 that the forward manages to break the deadlock in this encounter.
Draw @ 5/2 with bet365
