    First Goalscorer Morgan Gibbs-White 10/1 with bet365

    Nottingham Forest have had a mixed week in the cups going through on penalties to the semi-final of the League Cup in midweek but suffering a 4-1 loss in the FA Cup last weekend. In the league, 12 points from their last eight games has been good enough to move them up to 15th.

    Three of the last four games for Forest in the top tier have gone under 2.5 goals with the Tricky Trees keeping clean sheets in two of them. It is five unbeaten at home for Forest with three of these finishing all-square.

    It was a mixed cup week for Leicester also who were eliminated in the League Cup (by Newcastle) but progressed in the FA Cup (defeating Gillingham). Their Premier League form has been poor losing each of the three played since the season resumed.

    A lack of goals has been an issue for the Foxes of late with just two scored from their last five in all competitions. On the road, it is three victories in their last four Premier League games for the Foxes but these all came before the break.

    Nottingham Forest vs Leicester: Match Stats

    With Forest going unbeaten in their last five at the City Ground and having climbed into 15th their is new hope they can stay up. They will welcome taking on a Leicester side who have looked poor since coming back from the World Cup. Forest in the draw no bet market looks the way to play this game.

    Brennan Johnson has been booked two times in the last three matches as he seems to have been tasked with a few more defensive duties. The price on him to be shown a card has not caught up with this. Bet365 still have him at 6/1 which looks on the high side.
