Nottingham Forest are still capable of reaching the playoffs, but they do need to get some points fairly soon. However, they are up against an in-form Brentford side and they will likely be in for a tough test in this match.
Brentford are unbeaten in their last seven matches while scoring a massive 12 goals in their last three matches. But, they have also conceded five goals in that time while seeing both teams score in their last four games in a row.
Forest are not exactly flying under new manager Martin O’Neil and it’s not a surprise after his disappointing results with the Republic of Ireland. However, I can see them getting a goal in this game against a Brentford side that have a terrible away record.
Brentford have conceded at least one goal in all but one of their matches on the road, however, they have hit form at a great time to get a goal or two themselves. Both teams scoring looks quite likely in this one.
Plymouth are flying right now, with five wins in their last six games. Meanwhile, Portsmouth are struggling with three losses, one draw and one win in their last five games. Pompey have dropped down to 3rd with these bad performances, but they are still scoring goals.
Both teams have scored in three of Plymouth’s last five weeks while Pompey have seen both teams score in four of their last five. Simarily, Portsmouth have seen both teams score in four of their last five games and in 11 of their 15 away games.
Plymouth have kept just two clean sheets at home this season while seeing both teams score in 10 of their 15 home matches. Both teams scoring looks pretty likely with Plymouth’s good form, and Pompey’s solid away scoring record.
