Nottingham Forest vs Millwall

Four days on after managing to salvage a point in their clash with Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest resume their quest for promotion with a home clash against Millwall.

Following a run of one win in five games, Nottingham Forest currently find themselves eight points off the automatic promotion places and nine points away form league leaders West Brom.

Forest followed up their loss to Charlton with consecutive draws against the Baggies and QPR. Sabri Lamouchi’s men then hit back with a win over Cardiff however, their pursuit of the top two took another blow when they drew 2-2 with Middlesbrough last weekend.

Millwall, on the other hand are still in the hunt for a play-off place but, they will need to overcome stuttering form if they are to make the top six.

Gary Rowett’s side have won just one of their last eight league games. That run extends to nine games when including their 2-0 loss to Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

Nevertheless, the London outfit have proved tough to beat having lost just one of their last five Championship games.

Millwall are five points off the play-offs which is a tad closer than Forest are to the automatic places. That aside, it’s clear that there’s plenty on the line when these two clubs clash this Friday night.

Looking at the betting, the price which offers the most value in the outright market is the draw at 23/10. This is a decent offer for a bet which has landed in two of the three previous encounters between these two sides.

Nottingham Forest vs Millwall - Team News

Samba Sow sidelined for Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest will again be without Samba Sow as they look to continue their Sky Bet Championship promotion push against Millwall on Friday night.

Midfielder Sow has been sidelined since mid-February with a knee problem and is set to miss a fourth successive match.

Tiago Silva continues to recover from surgery for appendicitis, so is not expected to be available again until towards the end of March.

Forward Nuno Da Costa missed the 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough on Monday night because of an adductor injury, while defender Tendayi Darikwa (ACL) is a long-term absentee.

Millwall boss Gary Rowett will make a late call on Ryan Leonard and Shaun Williams.

Midfielders Leonard and Williams missed some training this week as illness hit the Lions squad.

Forwards Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Tom Bradshaw have also been under the weather, but are expected to be involved.

Midfielder Ben Thompson is aiming to step up his rehabilitation from an ankle problem, while goalkeeper Frank Fielding (arm) also continues his recovery.

Matt Smith hat-trick sees Millwall stun promotion hopefuls Nottingham Forest

Matt Smith destroyed Nottingham Forest with a 13-minute first-half hat-trick to boost Millwall’s hopes of reaching the Championship play-offs with a rousing 3-0 triumph at the City Ground.

Forest went into the game with a chance of moving up to third place in the table and five points behind Leeds, currently occupying the second automatic promotion spot.

Instead, it was Gary Rowett’s Lions who came away with only their second win from their past nine league matches to lift themselves to within two points of the top six, and their biggest away win since a 4-1 victory – again at Forest – in November 2012.

Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi’s side had no answer for the visitors’ penetrative cut-and-thrust football in the opening half that allowed Smith to score the second hat-trick of his nine-season career, and his first in the league.

Forest had started brightly, with a Joao Carvalho snapshot from 16 yards straight at Bartosz Bialkowski in the fifth minute, while Joe Lolley rifled a drive from just inside the area over the crossbar.

Smith netted his first after 20 minutes, stooping brilliantly onto a low right-foot cross from Murray Wallace, who had cut inside Forest captain Ben Watson after Millwall had made a break from deep.

The next raid in the 26th minute was sparked by Jed Wallace dispossessing Alfa Semedo on the halfway line before playing in Mason Bennett on the overlap down the left-wing.

From Bennett’s low cut back into the area, on-loan Brighton midfielder Jayson Molumby passed the ball into the back of the net from 15 yards, which would have been the 20-year-old’s first senior goal in 34 appearances, only for Smith to claim via a decisive touch en route.

Just after the half-hour, a Millwall side that had only scored three goals in their previous seven league matches, made it 3-0, with Smith nodding home from two yards an inswinging corner to the far post from Shane Ferguson.

It completed Smith’s first hat-trick since scoring all four for Bristol City in a 4-2 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win at Gillingham just over five years ago.

In need of a lifeline before the break, the closest Forest came was via a long-range effort from Sammy Ameobi that deflected off the back of Millwall captain Shane Hutchinson, and inches wide of Bialkowski’s right-hand post.

It was not until midway through the second half that the home side conjured their next effort, with Bialkowski beating away another drive from distance, this time from John Bostock, who had replaced Semedo at the break.

After penalty appeals soon after for a Hutchinson shirt pull on Carvalho were dismissed, Bialkowski was forced into another fine save from a more stinging effort from Bostock in the 79th minute.

Smith was replaced to a standing ovation from the visiting fans 10 minutes from time of a game in which the Lions roared out a warning, leaving Forest limping along after claiming just six points from the last 18 on offer.
