Our match prediction:
Nottingham Forest continue where they left last season. The Reds have been impressive at their City Ground at the start of the new Championship campaign, but they have been struggling on the travels. Forest outplayed the likes of Burton Albion, Wigan Athletic and Leeds United in previous three home games in the Championship, but they have yet to record a win on the road. The Reds are on a three-match winless run on the road, but Wednesday’s football match against Rotherham United could be the turning point for the visitors. The Millers have been struggling at the back this season, with the team conceding 14 goals in previous six league matches and that is the main reason why we predict Nottingham Forest are going to pick up all three points from the match. Apostolos Velios opened his goal-scoring account in a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa and he is likely to lead the attack for the visitors.
