Our prediction for this Championship match:
Fulham will be aiming to extend their winning run to three games when they take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Matchday 42. The Cottagers are on the right track to book their place in the Championship playoffs, but a win over Nottingham will see them rejoin the race for automatic promotion as well. Top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic remains on the sidelines through suspension, and, in his absence, Bobby Reid will lead the line for the capital club.
The Reds, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Derby in the East Midlands derby at the weekend. Nottingham Forest are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and they are surely capable of matching Fulham at their City Ground. Considering that the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Michael Dawson):
Michael Dawson is a highly rated defender who started his youth career at Nottingham Forest. He made his first-team debut for the Reds in April 2002 in a 3-2 loss to Walsall. After spending four years at Nottingham Forest, Michael Dawson joined Tottenham Hotspur in 2005 and he went on to make 236 appearances for the capital club, scoring 7 goals and quickly becoming fans’ favourite at White Hart Lane.
After losing his place in the side, the centre-back signed for Hull City in 2014. The English footballer played for the Tigers in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign and despite the fact that they dropped to the Championship at the end of the season, he decided not to leave the club.
Michael Dawson scored one goal in 32 appearances for Hull City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he helped the Tigers return to the English top flight. Michael Dawson made his England debut in a friendly against Hungary in August, 2010. His main position is centre back.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
