Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Nottingham Forest will look to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Premier League when they take on Luton Town on Saturday afternoon. The Reds are eyeing their third win of the process and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the English top flight. Argentina defender Gonzalo Montiel should be recalled to the starting XI, while all Taiwo Awoniyi, Nuno Tavares, Felipe Monteiro, Danilo, and Omar Richards remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Hatters, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team suffering their sixth defeat of the season to ten-man Tottenham before the international window. As Luton are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on Forest this time out. All Clark, Sambi, Potts, and Bell are sidelined with injuries, while Gabriel Osho is a major doubt.
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.
