Our football match prediction:
Nottingham Forest are running down a blind alley at the moment. The Reds are on an eight-match winless run in the Championship, but a goalless draw with Birmingham City at the week certainly gave the team a confidence boost. The club chiefs sacked coach Philippe Montanier and it remains to be seen who will replace him as Forest boss in days to come. Anyhow, the Reds do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and we are not tempted to put our money on the home team. Bristol City, on the other hand, suffered a 3-2 loss to Cardiff City in their last league match and, no doubt, they are desperate to grab something from the relegation six-pointer against Nottingham Forest. Both teams are likely to go for in Saturday’s football match and we predict that fans will see a lively contest at the City Ground.
Highligted Player (Henri Lansbury):
Henri Lansbury began his youth career at Norwich City, but he soon moved to Arsenal. Lansbury made his first-team debut for the Gunners on 31 October, 2007 in the League Cup win over Sheffield United. It has to be noted that he came from the bench and replaced Theo Walcott. After spending three years on loan at Scunthorpe United, Watford, Norwich City and West Ham United, the 183-cm-tall midfielder signed a four-year deal with Nottingham Forest on 28 August, 2012. He has established himself as a first-team regular and he made 128 league appearances for the Reds before the start of the 2016/2017 Championship campaign. Henri Lansbury has 21 caps for England U21 team and he used to play for England U16, U17 and U19 teams in the past as well. In September 2011, he produced his best performance for the U21 team in a thrilling 6-0 win over Azerbaijan. Lansbury scored a brace against Azerbaijan and provided two assists for his teammates back then.
Highlighted Team (Bristol City):
Bristol City are one of the two famous clubs from the city of Bristol. Formed in 1894 the Robins mostly participated in English lower leagues and they have never played in the Premier League. Bristol City’s bitterest rivals are Bristol Rovers and it has to be noted that two teams first met in 1897. Bristol City have outplayed their local rivals on 43 occasions in the Bristol Derby. Cardiff City are regarded as Bristol City’s bitter rivals as well. The Robins play their home games at Ashton Gate, the stadium that was opened in 1887. Bristol City were semi-finalists of the League Cup two times (1970/1971, 1988/1989), with the team making it to the FA Cup final in 1909. The Robins faced Manchester United in the title game, but they failed to upset the English giants in the Crystal Palace clash. It is well known that Bristol City footballers wear red shirts and blue shorts.
