Why you should back Nottingham Forest
The Tricky Trees are on a 4-1-1 roll in their past six matches in all competitions. They advanced to the quarterfinals of the League Cup with a 4-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday. Brennan Johnson scored twice and Jesse Lingard had a goal. Lingard will no doubt strive to put on a good performance on the grounds where he has played eight of his previous nine EPL seasons. Forest dominated the match with Rovers, outshooting them 27-4 and putting 15 on net to just two for Blackburn. They also scored eight goals in four friendly matches over the break.
The revamped Forest side looks to be meshing under manager Steve Cooper. They signed 22 players following their promotion for the first time since 1999. Morgan Gibbs-White was a key signing, and he scored the goal against Crystal Palace. Taiwo Awoniyi leads the team in league goals, while Gibbs-White and Johnson have two pieces. Forest have beaten Liverpool 1-0 and Tottenham 2-0 during their six-match run, so they are becoming a team that others don’t want to face.
