Foot Predictions shows Saturday’s championship clash between Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Jonathan Woodgate will aim to continue his victory start as a caretaker Bournemouth boss when your side travels to Nottingham Forest in the league on Saturday.
Woodgate is in charge of Cherries as the club seeks a replacement for Jason Tindall and has two wins in two games.
Last weekend, Woodgate ended Bournemouth’s four-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over Birmingham City.
The team from the South Coast conquered the scalp of the Premier League in the fifth round of the FA Cup, on Tuesday night, by beating Burnley 2-0 away from home thanks to goals from Sam Surridge and Stanislas Júnior.
When asked if his chances of taking the job full-time are increasing, the former England defender stressed “we will not get carried away” and “I know football can come back and bite you”. Currently the bookmakers’ third favorite for the role, behind David Wagner and Patrick Vieira.
It will be a difficult task for anyone to get automatic promotion for Bournemouth this season, as Cherries, currently in sixth place, are 10 points behind the top two. However, they are five points ahead of seventh Middlesbrough.
The South Coast side is the second top scorer in the league, behind Brentford, but has won just one of the last six games out of the league.
They also never won on their seven previous trips to City Ground, the most recent of them in 2015.
Forest have won just four times at home in the league in 2020-21, in a complicated campaign so far.
They won two crucial victories in the last two weeks away from home, in Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers, moving up to 18th place – four points ahead of the relegation zone. They have not won three consecutive league games since January 2020.
37 years Glenn Murray scored twice in his debut in the 3-0 win over Chairboys last weekend, meaning that Forest has only lost once in their last 10 games.
Chris HughtonThe team won just one point out of 18 out of the top six in the first half of the season – losing 2-0 away to Bournemouth – and travel to another tough game in Swansea City next week.

All news from the teams
Lewis Grabban he is expected to be available again after missing the trip to Wycombe, but he may have to settle for a seat on the bench due to Glenn Murray’s excellent full debut.
Joe Lolley left the bank and assisted Adams Park, which could be worth a fresh start Luke Freeman who is still working to get back to complete physical condition.
Wing mate Sammy Ameobi is back in training due to a knee problem, but Scott McKenna, Samba Sow, Ryan Yates and Harry Arter they’re all still out.
Jack Stacey is in doubt for Bournemouth after being forced at the break against Burnley due to a thigh problem.
Lloyd Kelly, Jack Wilshere and Arnaut Danjuma they are all in line to return after a rest at Turf Moor.
