Burton Albion v Nottingham Forest Betting Predictions and Match Preview

Burton Albion host Nottingham Forest in matchday 32 of the Championship on Saturday 17th February at Pirelli Stadium. The hosts currently sit in 24th place in the table having drawn against Ipswich Town 0-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 17th after their 0-2 loss against Hull City.

Aitor Karanka has not exactly hit the ground running since taking charge of Nottingham Forest, guiding his new team to four losses in which they have failed to score in five Championship games, so bottom-side Burton actually begin as 48% favourites for victory in the eyes of our Kickoff predictive algorithm.

Last Season's Score
The Reds have only made one previous visit to the Pirelli Stadium, losing 1-0 at the venue last season thanks to a goal from Cauley Woodrow, and a repeat of that result is afforded a 12% chance of happening this time around.

Team News For Burton Albion
Having secured a 0-0 draw at Ipswich last time out, Nigel Clough is unlikely to make too many changes to his team, though Liam Boyce will be itching to make his first start for the club in attack.

Team News For Nottingham Forest
Joe Lolley made his debut as a substitute in Nottingham Forest’s home defeat by Hull last Saturday, so the 25-year-old could come into the line-up for this encounter.

First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Lloyd Dyer (8% chance) is the Brewers’ top scorer this season with five league goals and the ex-Leicester winger has to be a serious contender to break the deadlock against this East Midlands outfit.

This clash will take place at the Pirelli Stadium at 3:00pm on Saturday 17th February. Highlights will be shown on Football on 5: The Championship later that evening at 9:00pm.
