Home Nottingham Forest

30/01/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm City Ground V Predicted Score:1 - 1

Away Preston North End

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Kieran Dowell to continue his good goalscoring record, the youngster on loan from Everton has nine goals to his name so far this season and is 19/5 to score anytime in this game.

2 We fancy:

A draw in this one which is 11/5, the last three games between the two teams have ended up 1-1 and for that scoreline to happen again today it’s 5/1.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 2-2 draw at 16/1 is well worth a punt.
