The stats behind our Nottingham Forest vs Wolves predictions:

  • Nottingham Forest are without a clean sheet in their last eight games across all competitions, but have scored at least once in their last four.
  • Wolves have conceded in their last six matches (all comps) and scored in four of their last five.
  • Chris Wood has scored in each of his last four Premier League appearances, accounting for four of Forest’s last six goals in the competition.
  • The last three meetings between these sides (all competitions) have ended 1-1 after normal time.

Chris Wood to extend goalscoring run?

After a 3-1 defeat to Champions League chasing Tottenham last weekend ended Nottingham Forest’s three game unbeaten run in the Premier League (W1 D2), they will be hoping to get back on track this weekend.

They go into the game in 17th, only keeping themselves out of the relegation zone on goal difference after a poor campaign. With just two wins from their last 15 matches across all competitions, they will need to step up if they want to avoid returning back to the Championship, starting with Wolves this weekend.

They will once again be looking to striker Chris Wood to fire them to victory having found the back of the net in each of his last four Premier League appearances. He has now scored 12 Premier League goals for Nottingham Forest this season and needs just two more goals to equal his best ever scoring return in a single campaign in the competition (14 with Burnley in 2019/20). He will be confident of adding to his tally this weekend as only vs. West Ham (7) has he scored more Premier League goals than he has against Wolves (6), with his first ever hat-trick in the competition coming against them in April 2021.

Wolves, meanwhile, are also struggling for form with the 3-1 victory over Fulham their only win in their last six matches across all competitions (D1 L4). Before that run they were looking for a European spot having won four of the previous five, but unless they pick up again soon that dream will be over before it began. They are unbeaten in their last five away league games against Nottingham Forest (W3 D2) however, so will be hopeful of picking up at least a point.

Draw & BTTS @ 7/2 with BetVictor

Five of the last 11 meetings between these sides (all competitions) have ended in a 1-1 draw, including the last three. Forest are without a clean sheet in their last eight games across all competitions, but have scored at least once in their last four, while Wolves have conceded in their last six matches (all comps) and scored in four of their last five.

Gary O’Neil’s side have kept just two clean sheets in their last 32 Premier League away games.

Squawka
Team

Nottingham Forest have won just one of their last 10 league games against Wolves (D4 L5) and are winless in all three against them in the Premier League (D2 L1), so the draw at 13/5 may be the way to go here.
