Our prediction for this Championship match:
Luton Town and Nottingham Forest face each other at Kenilworth Road in a highly-anticipated Championship clash. The Hatters aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Reds. Both Luke Berry and Robert Snodgrass should be recalled to the starting XI, with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Henri Lansbury likely to drop to the bench. Given Forest’s brilliant form, the hosts should be happy with one point from Friday’s clash.
The Reds, on the other hand, are eyeing their seventh consecutive league win. Forest look sharp in front of goal, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Since there are no fresh injury worries in the away team, head coach Cooper is unlikely to make changes to the starting XI.
