Our prediction for this Championship match:
After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Barnsley, Wolverhampton will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they welcome Nottingham Forest at their Molineux Stadium. The Wolves are on the right track to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League and they are ten points clear of second-placed Derby County ahead of the visit of the Reds. The league leaders have been impressive at home ground this term and they are eyeing their third consecutive win at their Molineux Stadium. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa at the City Ground at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run in the league to six matches. The Reds failed to find the net in previous four games in the English second tier and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Ben Marshall):
Ben Marshall began his youth career at Manchester United back in 1997 at the age of six. The winger, who is capable of playing at right back as well, was born on 29 March 1991 and he signed for Stoke City on 8 July 2009.

Marshall played 44 matches for Blackburn in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that he scored six goals for the Ewood Park outfit in all competitions. The winger made his debut for England U21 on 6 September against Azerbaijan. In the 2010/2011 season Ben Marshall won the Football League Trophy with Carlisle United and that is considered the biggest success of his career.
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.
