EFL: NFFC vs Swans

The most notable match in round 44 of the English Premier League this year is the confrontation between Nottingham and Swansea. This will be an uncompromising match, because both teams have great goals to participate in the prestigious play-off round. So wait and see, Nottingham with home field advantage maintains its current position. Or Swansea with high determination will bring 3 points to raise hope for top 6.

Nottingham, despite opening the score in the fifth minute on the penalty spot by Grabban, could only have a 1-1 draw on Preston's pitch last round. Thus, in the last 3 rounds, this team did not win when it only drew 2 and lost 1. These results do not make much sense when they are in danger of being removed from the top 6. Specifically Nottingham maintained its 5th place on the standings with 69 points after 43 rounds. The distance of 5 points compared to the opponent ranked behind to the present time is relatively safe. However, they are still only 6 points better than the 7th of Swansea. Therefore, Nottingham still needs to win in the next match to make sure the place in the play-off group is promoted. Of course, with the fulcrum of home ground, Nottingham Forest will likely 'shoot down' the Black Swan to accomplish its goal.

The match against Swansea was a very good match at home against Leeds. However, a goal in the last minute of Hernandez's away team made the Liberty home team lose at least the final. This defeat also ended a series of 3 unbeaten matches of the Black Swan. Swansea are ranked 7th in the rankings but they are only 1 point lower than the play-off team. The journey in the Championship has now reached the final stage, when the teams have only 3 rounds left to meet the goal. Of course, to make it to the top 6, Swansea need to beat Nottingham and hope Cardiff can not get all 3 points when playing Derby County. Swansea's ability to beat Nottingham at the opponent's mecca is not high. History shows that Swansea often doesn't have the full joy of playing on the City Ground. Specifically, the last 8 matches in this stadium in all arenas, the Black Swan did not once triumph when the song drew 5 and lost 3.
