Forest may be well in the hunt for a promotion place however, plucky little Millwall certainly cannot be underestimated. Since joining the club, Gary Rowett’s men have impressed and currently find themselves five points off the play-off places.

What’s more, Millwall tend to do quite well against Forest in recent times. In their last three encounters, the Lions picked up two victories and a hard-earned 2-2 away draw.

And if that’s not enough, what about Millwall’s home form. One defeat in nine games, five wins, and victories over the likes on Leeds, Preston and Sheffield Wednesday show just how strong the Lions are at the Den.

Bearing all this in mind, the bookmarkers have made the home side slight favourites at the price of 11/8. Forest meanwhile, are currently 19/10.

Despite Millwall’s strong home form, they have only managed to keep three sheets from nine games on their own turf. With that in mind, our recommendation is to go with a Millwall win and both teams to score at 9/2.

Team News
Millwall will be without midfielder Ryan Leonard as they prepare to host Nottingham Forest on Saturday. Leonard was expected to return for the Championship clash but will be sidelined for longer than expected with a rib injury.

Goalkeeper Frank Fielding has been closing in on a return to action and could make his post-injury comeback at the weekend. Shane Ferguson and Shaun Hutchinson are out with injuries, as are Tom Elliott (hamstring) and Jason McCarthy (toe).

Nottingham Forest look to extend their four-game unbeaten run as they head to the Den sitting fourth in the league. Manager Sabri Lamouchi will be without defender Carl Jenkinson (ankle) and midfielder Samba Sow (hamstring), who are yet to regain sufficient fitness after injuries.

Yuri Ribeiro will also miss out due to a knee injury, with the fixture falling slightly too soon for the defender. Ryan Yates will be available, however, having served the three-match ban he was awarded for a red card at Bristol City.

Recommendation

Millwall to win and both teams to score – 9/2 bet365*

Stats: Millwall (13) v Nottm Forest (4)  

Millwall will be without midfielder Ryan Leonard due to a rib injury, which is taking longer to heal. Goalkeeper Frank Fielding could return from a quad injury sustained on his debut in August, while Tom Elliott (hamstring), Jason McCarthy (toe), Shane Ferguson and Shaun Hutchinson are sidelined.

Forest are set to be missing defender Carl Jenkinson (ankle), midfielder Samba Sow (hamstring) and Yuri Ribeiro (knee). Ryan Yates returns from a three-match suspension.

    Millwall 2-2 Nottingham Forest

    Date published: 12/6/2019 11:21:39 PM

    Aiden O’Brien’s stoppage-time equaliser earned Millwall a dramatic point from a 2-2 draw after two goals from Lewis Grabban looked set to clinch Nottingham Forest the victory.

    Rowett’s men started on the front foot and after 15 minutes went ahead when Shaun Williams nodded home from Jed Wallace’s pinpoint cross.

    Grabban was then introduced just after the hour mark and took less than a minute to equalise before clinically dispatching Sammy Ameobi’s centre two minutes from time to send the away fans wild before O’Brien’s late strike gave the game one last twist.

    The south-east Londoners have picked up nine points from their last six outings and are unbeaten in six at The Den.

    They began the match in understandably confident fashion, with Ben Thompson flashing a close-range header over from Mahlon Romeo’s centre after five minutes.

    It was not long before the hosts had got their noses in front. Wallace’s delivery was pinpoint and despite a scrum of bodies in the penalty area, Williams arrived unmarked to nod in from around six yards.

    Before Rowett’s arrival, the Dublin-born midfielder last scored at the beginning of March 2019 against Norwich, but now the 33-year-old has scored in successive games following his eye-catching strike against Birmingham at St Andrew’s last Saturday.

    Romeo then tested Brice Samba with a rasping drive as Wallace ran the show.

    Sabri Lamouchi’s men knew they had to show more quality in the second half and Ameobi almost provided the perfect response, with Bartosz Bialkowski getting down smartly to keep out the former Bolton winger’s volley.

    Grabban’s arrival was unsurprisingly met with a chorus of boos, but he silenced the hosts by stabbing home from on the goal line following Joe Worrall’s header back across Bialkowski.

    The game was being played at 100 miles an hour and Thompson almost came up with an inspired assist, hooking the ball over the Forest backline only for Jake Cooper’s header to be shovelled away by Samba.

    Cooper then had another header cleared off the line, before Alfa Semedo screwed a shot into the side-netting after Lamouchi’s men had looked to have carved open the home side with a flowing team move.

    Grabban then looked set to perfectly fulfil the villain’s role, racing into the box to get on the end of Ameobi’s perfect delivery as Millwall fans howled in despair.

    However, the visitors were dealt a late blow when Williams saw his hopeful snapshot from 25 yards spilled by Samba, with O’Brien on hand to bury the rebound.

    There was even time for Connor Mahoney to dance through, but his effort only found the side netting.
