What Trueform says for Sheff Utd vs Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United’s hopes of earning automatic promotion have faltered of late but they have a good chance to get back on track when hosting Nottingham Forest.

The visitors look resigned to mid-table mediocrity following a run of three straight defeats and should be there for the taking at Bramall Lane.

We’re going with 13/10 for a home win to nil for our opening Sheff Utd vs Nottingham Forest prediction.

A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds

United are three points behind second-placed Leeds, with four games to go, following back-to-back draws against Birmingham and Millwall.

The Blades led through Gary Madine’s 51st-minute strike against the Lions at this venue but failed to press home their advantage and paid the price late on.

John Egan was sent off for a handball on the line and, while Ben Marshall missed the resulting penalty, Millwall found an equaliser through Jake Cooper’s diving header deep in stoppage time.

“We never showed enough ambition to go on and score the second, which is uncharacteristic from our team,” said Chris Wilder.

“We played safe and didn’t go for the jugular. We played backwards and square and sat in, so I’m not surprised they got back into the game.”

Wilder will encourage his players to be more positive if hitting the front again here, so 31/20 for the Blades to win by more than one clear goal stands out from the Sheff Utd vs Nottingham Forest odds.

A Look At Nottingham Forest’s Betting Odds

Forest have been in the hunt for a play-off place for much of the season but those aims have pretty much evaporated this month.

Martin O’Neill’s men were beaten 2-1 at Rotherham and 3-0 at Sheffield Wednesday, before going down 2-1 to Blackburn at the City Ground.

Following three months in charge, O’Neill says he has a clear idea of the work that needs to be done, after turning his thoughts to next term.

“There are a number of areas to address in the summer,” said O’Neill. “The play-offs are a distance away and we cannot talk about that any more.

“Now we will see what we have about us. Everyone will get a chance to show what they can do and we will get ready for next season.”

This looks a tough trip to make with such a mindset, though, so 25/4 for a 2-0 home win is added to our Sheff Utd vs Nottingham Forest betting tips.
