Our football match prediction:
Barnsley do not seem to be on top of their game at the start of the season. The Tykes suffered back-to-back defeats to the likes of Bristol City and Ipswich Town in the first two games of the season, but Tuesday’s football match against Nottingham Forest could be the turning point for the hosts. Barnsley aim to move away from the relegation zone and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail against the Reds, who are eyeing their third consecutive win in the English second tier. Paul Heckingbottom’s troops defeated Forest in their last meeting in the Championship and it remains to be seen if they are capable of repeating the success. The Reds head into the match following back-to-back wins over the likes of Millwall and Brentford and new signing Andreas Bouchalakis, who scored a brace in the 4-3 win over Bees, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Adam Davies):
Adam Davies is a German-born footballer who plays for Championship side Barnsley as a goalkeeper. The 185-cm-tall shoot-stopper began his youth career at Everton and in 2012 he signed a contract with Sheffield Wednesday. However, he never managed to make a first-team appearance for the Owls. Due to the lack of first team action, he decided to leave the club in 2014. Adam Davies, who was born in Rinteln, Germany on 17 July, 1992, moved to Barnsley on 13 June, 2014. He made his debut for the club against Crawley Town in the opening match of the 2014/2015 campaign and he quickly established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper. His contract with Barnsley expires on 30 June, 2017, but the deal could be extended for a further year. Adam Davies conceded 82 goals, while keeping 26 clean sheets in 74 appearances for Barnsley in all competitions. During his spell at Everton U23 he managed to keep eight clean sheets in 22 appearances for the club.
Highlighted Team (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0). Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
