Battle of the Promotion Play-off Rivals
Bristol City are sixth in the Championship and are only behind their opponents on goal difference. Fifth placed Nottingham Forest do have a game in hand though and head to Ashton Gate looking for a third league win in a row. It's not been that happy a hunting ground for them in the past though.
The home side will be out to ensure that doesn't happen. They are unbeaten in their last four league games but have just one win in the last three. That was achieved in their latest match when winning 1-0 away at Cardiff City. Before that though, City had drawn two successive games 2-2. They gave away a home lead against Wigan and needed an 86th minute equalizer to rescue a point. Then they traveled to relegation threatened Barnsley They led that one 2-0 with 13 minutes to go but came away with just a point thanks to a disastrous 94th minute equaliser.
Home form for Bristol City has seen them lose just one of their seven league games. That was to Leeds United in their first match of the season. Six home league games unbeaten since then but three have been drawn. It's a tight league with 17th place Derby County only seven points behind City, so they can't afford to be dropping too many points, especially at home.
Forest Back in Form
Nottingham Forest had a bad patch in October losing two league games in the space of four days. Not the kind of form you want at the City Ground when there's a trigger-happy owner. Forest have bounced back well though with wins at Luton Town and home to Derby County.
Those two victories have taken them to fifth in the table. They have a game in hand though and are only three points behind the second automatic promotion place. Forest have won eight of their 15 league games this season, only the top three of West Bromwich Albion, Preston North End and Leeds United have won more. Only four clubs in the Championship have conceded less away goals than Nottingham Forest. Just the eight in as many games and only four have scored more.
They have already won four away league games this season. There have been some high-profile wins too with victories at Fulham and Swansea City, both promotion challengers. The other wins came at struggling Stoke City and Luton Town. Only one of their eight away league games has ended in defeat, a 1-0 loss at Wigan Athletic.
This isn't a fixture that has been too kind to Forest in recent years. Only one of their last nine meetings has been won. You have to go back to 2011 for their last away win against Bristol City. Just two points have been earned from their last six league visits to Ashton Gate. They look a much better side this season and a double chance bet on them to win or draw this game looks good. A draw with both teams scoring could also be a winner.
