Nottingham Forest Preview
Nottingham Forest comes into this game sitting in 13th place in the standings having picked up 20 points. Last Saturday, Nottingham faced off against Leicester City and they were able to secure a 2-0 victory. Brennan Johnson scored in the 56th and 85th minutes to secure the victory. Nottingham is still without Dean Henderson who is going to be missing the next couple of months with a thigh injury. Willy Boly, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jesse Lingard, and Moussa Niakhate are all still dealing with injuries and they aren’t going to be able to play in this game.
AFC Bournemouth Preview
AFC Bournemouth currently sits in 17th place in the standings having picked up 16 points. In the last game against Brentford, AFC Bournemouth faced to score any goals and that led to the 2-0 victory. They had 51 percent of the possession and they only managed two shots on goal. In this game, they need to find a way to get the offense going. Dominic Solanke isn’t expected to go in this game, and that is a big loss for a team that has limited offensive options. The team has also sent Jamal Lowe out on loan and he won’t be able to play in this game.
Goals are going to be hard to come by in this game. When Nottingham has found success it’s been because of the defense and they are going to find success with the defense again in this game. Look for only one or two goals to be scored here, and that will be the difference as this game stays under the total.
