Nottingham Forest comes into this game sitting 18th place in the standings having picked up 30 points. Two games ago against Brighton, Nottingham Forest was able to secure the 3-1 victory. In the last game against Brentford they were defeated 2-1. In this game the defense is going to need to step up. Nottingham Forest is dealing with some issues that are a major concern.

Southampton actually had the first goal with Stuart Armstrong scoring in the 41st minute, but the defense gave up three goals after the 54th minute. Romain Perraud had ankle surgery and he’s going to be out a while. There was a goalie change before last game, but it looks like Gavin Banzu could move back into the starting lineup here. In this game the defense is going to need to step up for Southampton. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The injuries concerns for Nottingham Forest is a big issue and they are going to really struggle in this game. Nottingham Forest is going to really struggle to get any type of offense going, and that is going to be the difference here. Back Southampton to get the job done on the money line. This is a strong play.
