Forest vs Boro

Middlesbrough has just won an extremely important victory against Charlton to temporarily escape the pursuit of the group holding the red light behind. Obviously this is a season where the visitors show a disappointed face and almost every opportunity to find a ticket to return to the Premier League. On the other side, Nottingham Forest is full of hope to make it into the Play-Off group, and there is no reason for them to drop a point against an under-rated opponent.

Last season, despite trying very hard, Nottingham Forest can only finish in 9th place, but with the efforts to return to the Premier League, the City Ground team is now becoming one of the Potential candidates for promotion. At this time Nottingham Forest is ranked 5th in the rankings with good performance since the beginning of the season, when there were 9 wins, 6 draws and only lost 4 matches. The achievement was thanks to the small contribution from the defense, when they only conceded 16 goals in 19 matches. In terms of form, the home team is somewhat inferior to the previous period, because the last 5 rounds, although only losing 1, they also only have 2 times the triumph song. Despite this, confrontational history fully favored Nottingham Forest as they lost only 1 and won to 4 in the last 5 meetings with Middlesbrough.

The visitors Middlesbrough just received a 0-4 defeat at the Leeds Stadium. This has been the 8th defeat of the Riverside team this season. The biggest problem for the red shirt players is in the attack when they only have 16 goals, the performance is less than 1 goal 1 game. With the worst performance of this Championship, they have only got 3 wins, 17 points and 20 places in the ranking. The distance between Middlesbrough and the current red light holding group is only 1 point only. Compared to finishing in seventh position last season, it is true that teachers and coach Woodgate are experiencing a crisis. Despite recent improvements, losing only a fifth of the last round, it is difficult for Middlesbrough to gain points against a superior Nottingham Forest in every respect.
