Championship betting tips: Nottingham Forest v Fulham

Fifth host fourth in the Championship on Tuesday in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

While it’s a big game for both sides, how much is actually at stake?

Forest are seven points clear of seventh-placed Derby so would need a big collapse to lose their grip on a play-off spot.

Fulham are seven behind second-placed West Brom and also surely destined for the play-offs.

This could therefore be a dress rehearsal for a two-legged semi-final in a few weeks’ time.

As for the here and now, a draw may well suit both sides in terms of cementing those play-off spots.

Fulham, who will again be without leading scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic through suspension, might be thinking that way given their poor away record against the best sides in the division – they’ve yet to win away to anyone in the top nine.

A focus from Scott Parker on defensively solidity would therefore be no surprise.

Forest, who have a full squad to choose from after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Derby, have a better record against the big guns – they’ve already beaten Leeds and Brentford at the City Ground.

However, they’ve also drawn five of their last nine so 2/1 about this outcome looks fair enough.

Team News for  Nottingham Forest v Fulham

Nottingham Forest look set to have a full squad to choose from once again when they host promotion rivals Fulham on Tuesday.

The Reds went into Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Derby injury-free and appeared to emerge from the contest with that still the case.

Matty Cash and Ryan Yates, having each taken knocks to the head in the win over Bristol City three days earlier, both completed the full duration.

Sabri Lamouchi’s fifth-placed men, two points and one position behind Fulham in the Championship table, are unbeaten since the season resumed.

Fulham will be without top-scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic as he completes his suspension.

The Serbia striker is serving a three-game ban handed to him for an elbow on Ben White in the 3-0 loss to Leeds on June 27.

That was a second successive defeat for Scott Parker’s side, but they have recorded back-to-back wins since then.

Defender Alfie Mawson, who has been out since January, did not make a return to the matchday squad on Saturday as the Cottagers beat Birmingham 1-0.

    Date published: 7/7/2020 8:43:20 PM

    Harry Arter’s superb strike kept alive Fulham’s hopes of automatic promotion from the Championship as they won 1-0 against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

    A game of few clear-cut chances was settled in first-half injury time by Arter’s left-foot effort from just outside the penalty area which flew into the top corner of the net.

    It gave Fulham a third straight victory and moved them to within four points of second-placed West Brom, who host Derby on Wednesday.

    A first defeat since the restart for Forest is likely to end their hopes of catching the top two and mean they have to settle for a play-off spot.

    The hosts made two changes as Tiago Silva and Sammy Ameobi were restored to the starting line up, with Ryan Yates and Joia Nuno Da Costa among the substitutes.

    There were three changes for Fulham. One was enforced after Tom Cairney suffered a knock against Birmingham, while Anthony Knockaert and Cyrus Christie dropped down to the bench. Joe Bryan, Neeskens Kebano and Saturday’s match-winning goal scorer Joshua Onomah were recalled.

    A bright start to the game saw both sides exert some early pressure with a couple of corners apiece.

    The first real chance came after 17 minutes after a mistake by Tim Ream, who was captaining Fulham in the absence of Cairney, mid-way inside his own half.

    Ream’s error allowed Lewis Grabban a run towards the penalty area with only Michael Hector between himself and goalkeeper Marek Rodak. But Hector stood his ground as Grabban attempted to barge past him and the Forest striker’s shot was easily fielded by Rodak.

    Fulham threatened for the first time as the half-hour mark approached. A driving run from Bobby Decordova-Reid saw him slalom past a sliding Ben Watson challenge before unleashing a swerving effort from 25 yards that dipped just over the crossbar.

    Grabban had another chance at the end of the first half following some good work down the right by Matty Cash, but once again he was unable to make the desired contact and this time the ball dribbled harmlessly wide.

    Arter had no such problems finding a clean strike moments later. The midfielder attempted a pass just outside the box but the ball deflected back to him off Watson. Arter then decided to shoot, sending a left-foot shot arrowing into the top corner of the net.

    Forest responded to the setback positively at the start of the second half, putting their opponents under pressure with a succession of corners, but it was not until the 65th minute that they worked Rodak.

    Alfa Semedo sent in a shot from the edge of the area but the Fulham goalkeeper held on to it well. Shortly afterwards, Oliveira Ribeiro found himself in a promising position but was unable to keep his effort down.

    Bryan did likewise at the other end before Knockaert sent a shot skidding along the rain-soaked surface and into Brice Samba’s gloves.

    It was end-to-end as the game reached the final stages and Rodka had to be alert to catch Da Costa’s looping header.

    Forest pushed for an equaliser but it was not forthcoming and Fulham defending manfully for what could prove to be a crucial victory.
