Nottingham Forest vs Norwich: Predictions
Norwich City have won their last eight games in the Championship and have extended their lead at the top of the table to 10 points from second-placed Watford with just 10 games left to play for Daniel Farke’s side. In those eight games, Norwich have scored 18 goals and conceded just three.
Nottingham Forest appear to be safe from this season’s drop given the lack of results being picked up by thee teams in the relegation zone. However, Forest will simply be hoping to see the back of this season as Chris Hughton’s side currently lie in 17th-place.
Forest have won just two of their last six games, however, their win against Blackburn Rover and draw against Bournemouth proved they are capable of providing an upset but failing to score more than one goal in each of the 90 minutes in their last six games has proven difficult for Hughton’s side to clinch all three points on occasions.
The Canaries had to dig in to earn all three points on Saturday after finding themselves 1-0 down within the first 10 minutes of the game and did not take the lead until 77 minutes deep with Todd Cantwell sealing the points for Farke’s side.
