The head‑to‑head record at this stadium couldn't be more balanced, as it shows 1 draw and 1 win for each team in the last 3 head‑to‑heads.

Analysis of Nottingham Forest

After 13 wins, 7 draws and 19 losses, the home team is in the 16th position, havinf won 46 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Millwall by (2‑0), after in the previous match they have tied (0‑0) an away match against Sheffield United. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Nottingham Forest has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 30 possible. Their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 22 of their 39 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 2. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 19 home matches for this competition: they have scored 7 of their 20 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Nottingham Forest arrives at this game with a 2-0 away defeat against Millwall, putting an end to the seven straight games without losing in this competition. It is important to note that the locals follow at the bottom of the standings, however, in a position away from the relegation zone. In this home game it is to expect coach Aitor Karanka to play in 4-2-3-1 benefiting the maintenance of the possession of the ball and slowed attacks, looking for most of the occasions the offensive reference Brereton. Noting that Kieran Dowell is the top scorer of Nottingham Forest with 9 goals scored, however, is in doubt for this game. Cohen and Vaughan, both injured, will also be out for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Kapino, M. Mancienne, E. Lichaj, D. Fox, Fuentes, M. Cash, L. Bridcutt, B. Watson, A. Guédioura, B. Brereton, L. Tomlin.
Coach: Karanka.

Still, right-back Bradshaw manages to score eight goals. For this game coach Jose Morais can not count on the injured Mills and Pinnock.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Walton, A. Jackson, D. Cavaré, L. Lindsay, Dani Pinillos, A. Hammill, B. Potts, G. Gardner, G. Moncur, K. Moore, O. McBurnie.
Coach: P. Heckingbottom.

Betting suggestion:

Two teams that go through very dubious moments in the championship. Nottingham Forest occupies a more favorable position, but the team's momentum is irregular, Barnsley occupies the last positions and has serious offensive and defensive fragility. In this way, the game has a huge tendency to be balanced and closed, making risking in favor of a game with a few goals a good option.
