There is nothing better for neutrals than when a a league goes into the final week with a lot on the line, and that’s the case with the promotion places in the Championship this season. Although Fulham are already up, the second automatic promotion spot is yet to be secured and this game is essentially an early play-off for the Premier League.

Bournemouth go into the game with the advantage, currently second and three points clear of opponents Nottingham Forest with just two matches left to play. If the Cherries win, they’ll be promoted while a draw will also be an acceptable result, leaving Bournemouth with just one more point required. And they’re in promising form, unbeaten in their past six Championship games, with two wins and four draws.

But in even better form are Nottingham Forest. Steve Cooper’s side have been making a late push for their automatic promotion hopes, winning their past four matches including a victory over Fulham just last week. And although they trail Bournemouth, Forest know they are in control of their destiny.

If Forest beat Bournemouth on Tuesday they will move level on points with the Cherries, but ahead on goal difference ahead of the Championship’s final day. As a result, Forest would only need to better Bournemouth’s result on the final day to secure their return to the Premier League. This will be a massive game.
