Nottingham Forest vs. Stoke City Match Analysis and Prediction

Nottingham Forest will be looking for a slot in the Championship playoffs as they place host to side Stoke City on the championship finale. City Ground sets to come alive this Wednesday, with each side battling for a secure finish. The match kickoff is at 9:30 pm.

Nottingham Forest will be looking for a single point to guarantee their slot in the Championship playoffs. The side is currently fifth on the table with70 points but tied with side Cardiff City. With the Bluebirds facing off league one bound Hull City, the race for playoffs is one for the side.

Even though Forest is near in securing their spot in the playoffs, Sabri Lamouchi is nothing but disappointment with the side display. The side has failed to register a single win in their last five matches in the league.

In their last five matches, the side has only three points and five goals. Their last victory dates back to the first of the month. Even though a share of spoils with the Potters might be enough, Lamouchi will be looking to build steam ahead of the playoffs.

The Potters might have made a manse with their stay in the championship. The side is currently 17th on the table with 53 points. Despite a grasp on the second tier, a defeat could see the side fall down to 19th on the table.
