The match

When Chris Hughton took over at Nottingham Forest in October they were struggling to stay afloat and after an initial upturn in form, it looked like the task to steer Forest safety would be too large for the new manager. Forest lost seven of their 10 matches between Halloween and the 12th of December but with just three defeats in their last 13, Nottingham are now in 17th place, seven points above their hosts who are in 22nd and occupying the final relegation position. 

Nottingham Forest travel to Rotherham with six wins since the turn of the year and now look safe having endured a troubled season in the fallout of their play-off collapse last year. A 1-0 win at home to Blackburn at the weekend followed a 1-0 loss to Swansea last week. Forest have only lost one of their last six games in the Championship beating the likes of relegation-threatened Wycombe and Coventry and drawing against play-off hopefuls Barnsley and Bournemouth. It has been a steady run of form for Forest while Rotherham appear to have dropped the ball. Despite being just two points off safety, Rotherham have lost each of their last three league games and three of their last five at home. The Millers started the month with back-to-back wins over Preston and Derby but have suffered narrow defeats across their last three matches losing to Cardiff 2-1, before 1-0 losses at Norwich and Bournemouth.  

Key Statistics

  • Both teams have scored in four of Rotherham's last five home matches.
  • Forest have scored in all but one of their last eight away matches but have conceded in six of those games.
  • These sides drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture at the City Ground back in October.

The bet of our experts

Three wins in their last five has given Nottingham Forest a huge lift and they are now seven points above their hosts coming into this match. Rotherham have lost three in a row but were unlucky not to come away with something in their 1-0 loss to Norwich at the weekend. It’s hard to split these sides and Rotherham do perform better at home so although out of form I’m tipping both teams to score here.
