Our Prediction:

Nottm Forest will win

Nottm Forest – Hull Match Prediction | 23-10-2019 14:45

Scored 6 against Birmingham which showed they are improving up front. Hulls season so far is marked with inconsistency. The team still needs more stability at the back with a single clean sheet in 8 games. They found their game again in recent weeks with 2 victories and a draw. The long term injury of Abel Hernandez hit them hard and they netted some bad results.

Forest suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to Stoke City at Bet365 Stadium at the weekend, but it is well known that they produce better showings on home soil than on the travels. The Tigers recorded back-to-back wins over Millwall and Birmingham City in previous two home games in the league, but you should bear in mind that they are on a three-game losing run on the road in the English second tier. The Reds are eager to stay in the race for a place in the Championship play-offs and we believe that they are going to take advantage of the fact that Hull City have been struggling at the back on the travels this term. Nottingham Forest and Hull City face each other at the City Ground in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturdays program.

Despite that the team has failed to find the net in just a single game on the road. The team hasnt yet finished in a draw having 6 victories and 7 defeats. 2 victories and 4 defeats away from home show that Forest will be relying mainly on home games. Nottingham are performing better than last season. The team has a decent home record but poorer away.

Hull vs Nottingham Forest: Preview and Predictions

To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County. Derby County are regarded as Forests bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool.

Dicko was eager to change the club and on 27 January he joined Blackpool on loan. In 2011 he signed for Wigan Athletic, but he did not play in the league for the Latics. After ending his loan spell with Blackpool, he signed a loan deal with Wolverhampton, but he played no more than four league games for the Wolves in the 2012/2013 campaign. Nouha Dicko made his first-team debut for Strasbourg against Stade Plabennecois in September 2010, but he made no more than three league appearances for the club.

A 3-0 home defeat to Preston was followed up by a 2-0 loss at Fulham, dashing any hope of reaching the Championship play-offs with 16 games left. A 16-point gap is surely insurmountable and the nine-point lead over the bottom three is perhaps the more relevant statistic. Only a fortnight has passed since Forest were knocked out of the FA Cup at Hull City and its not been pretty since.

Goal Margins

Six new signings were made in the final hours of the window as Aitor Karanka aimed to stamp his mark, including an almost new midfield. The 11 wins this season suggests there will be plenty more, even if there might need to be patience with an overhauled squad. Forest have one eye on next season but will look to give fans reason to believe things are headed in the right direction.

You should know, though, that Hull City defeated Forest in their last meeting in the English second tier. The Tigers are eager to move away from bottom three and we predict that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Nottingham Forest on Matchday 18. KCOM Stadium will host Saturdays football game between Hull City and Nottingham Forest. A close encounter is on the cards and we predict that the two sides are going to play out a draw at KCOM Stadium. The Reds, on the other hand, are determined to climb to the play-offs berth in the Championship standings, but beating Hull City on the road is easier said than done. Following back-to-back wins over Bolton and WBA, Hull City played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Birmingham City in their last league match, but that did not help them escape the relegation zone.

Nottingham Forest are on the up, and they have their eyes on the top six. Martin ONeill is looking to take the club he played for back into the top flight, and to do that they need to keep up their good home form. A setback last weekend has made things a little more difficult for the hosts, but can they respond with all three points in Saturdays meeting with Hull City?

Forests hopes of getting into the top six have been boosted since Karankas departure. They come into this game with four wins in their last five at home. They have taken out Leeds in that run, and their last game here saw them beat East Midlands rivals Derby in a huge top six clash. The hosts have made a march on the playoff spots in the league, with their home form taking a turn. Will there be more joy for ONeills side in this clash?

The hosts were beaten 2-0 at Stoke last time out not the kind of result which suggest a run back to the Premier League. Their return at the City ground is strong, they sit seventh in the home table level on points with Hull City. Thats been their big flaw this season; failing to pick up points on the road. They will be aiming to leapfrog the Tigers with a victory here, as they look to close the four-point gap to the top six.
