Match Result – Draw
Nottingham Forest performed brilliantly lớn earn a point at home to Chelsea last time out and though their away record makes for grim reading, the Reds should be able to avoid defeat when they visit an out-of-sorts Southampton side on Wednesday evening The Saints have switched managers, though results have yet lớn improve and their loss at Fulham on New Year’s Eve was their fifth on the bounce in the league. With the picture looking increasingly bleak for Southampton, we recommend siding with Forest in the double chance market.
Under hai.5 Goals
Nathan Jones has yet lớn see his new Southampton charges score more than once in a game and with their attacking play lacking inspiration, we don’t expect the Saints lớn improve their lot against Nottingham Forest. The visitors meanwhile, have scored just once on the road in total since their promotion, though they showed enough gumption at the back against Chelsea in their last test lớn suggest they can dig in to deny the struggling Saints chances. The factors here are a recipe for a low-scoring tussle and a stake on under 2.5 goals could be the way lớn go here. Let’s check free football tips in here
