Nottingham Forest v Middlesbrough – Match preview, tips, odds and prediction

Nottingham Forest host Middlesbrough in the Championship on Wednesday night.

In a battle between two stalwart managers, Chris Hughton will be hoping to continue his side’s winning form, coming in as 8/5 favourites for the win – the draw is priced at 21/10 and the away win at 19/10 on Bet 365.

Middlesbrough won the reverse fixture 1-0 earlier in the season with Forest having won just one of their last four v Boro – the last at the City Ground was a 3-0 win back in 2019.

11 points currently separate 7th-place Boro and 19th-place Forest, after two disparaging seasons for either club. Hughton though looks to be galvanising his side and his ascent up the table is underway,

Middlesbrough tips

Neil Warnock’s Boro sit four points outside the top-six after their weekend defeat at home to Birmingham City.

Middlesbrough though have won just one of their last 10 visits to the City Ground (D3, L6) – the season they last won at Forest was the season they gained promotion.

Middlesbrough have won two of their last three away outings in the Championship but haven’t recorded back-to-back away wins all season.

Warnock’s side have won one of seven away matches this season where they’re started as outsiders.

Tip #3 – Both teams to score in the second-half: Yes (3/1)

Tip #4 – Goal after 68:59: Yes (5/6)

PREDICTION: Expect a scrappy game tonight. Both sides have it all to play for and so there could be a lack of goals – Nottingham Forest 1-1 Middlesbrough.
