Wolves have rallied with a 7-match unbeaten run but Forest extends to an 11-game unbeaten sequence.
6th v 4th in the table.
Current form is 4th best record in last 8 games compared to the 3rd best record.
Forest have had three consecutive 0-0 draws away from home.
Very even on paper.
What about the opposition?
Forest are certainly doing a lot better than many predicted.
After floating around in mid-table for the last few years they seem to have got their act together under Paul Hart and look like they’ve resolved the financial difficulties that dogged them.
At the back they have Des Walker, who has returned this season and, despite his age, is doing well once again in the heart of the Forest defence.
Up front they have the rejuvenated pace of David Johnson partnered by the awkward Jack Lester.
At home they are an attacking force but on their travels Forest dig in and frustrate the home side.
Only 16 goals have been scored in the 9 games they’ve played away from the City ground this season so don’t expect any fireworks at the Molineux.
It’s going to be an even match and it could go right to the wire before any result is determined.
Soon to follow:
Rotherham away followed by two more home games against Norwich and Coventry.
Well last season Wolves stole all 3 points in the last minute with Newton scoring the only goal of the game.
Expect much the same tomorrow.
Both sides won’t want to concede anything to their potential play-off rival so keep the faith and we night sneak a win.
Come on the Wolves!
