Prediction: Nottingham Forest vs Bradford City – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Nottingham Forest Host for Bradford City in the first round of the EFL Cup to recover from the dramatic loss to Coventry City on Sunday.

Meanwhile Bradford, now under the leadership of Derek Adams, started their League Two season with a goalless draw in Exeter City.


Prediction for this match

After the half-time lead with a goal in front of the strong travel support, Chris Hughton would have believed that Forest was well on its way to victory at the Ricoh Arena.

The Sky Blues bounced back after the break, however, and ultimately earned their last-minute winner, leaving Hughton with a lot to think about for the future.

While the performance is positive, the majority of Forest fans naturally ask when the first-team roster will be expanded.

Despite the promise of their younger players in the final third, the East Midlands giants are in dire need of reinforcement with key figures in the treatment room in the coming weeks.

On the positive side, Lyle Taylor hit the scorers list over the weekend when he tried only four times to improve on netting in his freshman year on the City Ground.

Instead of overseeing Morecambe’s first year in the first division, Adams opted for a long-term contract with fourth division club Bradford.

Adams would have been relatively happy with some of the booty against promotion candidate Exeter after the Bantams ended last season with six losses from seven games.

Since everything changes in terms of personnel in the summer, the game on Wednesday at Forest Adams offers the chance to further strengthen his new signings.

Despite nine freshly made faces and more possibly loaned faces, there will be a desire to cause one of the rounds ‘surprises with the pressure on their hosts’ shoulders.

While Loic Mbe Soh and Nuno Da Costa are definitely absent for Forest, Joe Worrall will be rated in the days leading up to the game.

Tobias Figueiredo will likely be included in the starting XI, as well as Cafu and Philip Zinkernagel in the midfield.

Ateef Konate and Joao Carvalho are also pushing for opportunities in creative areas.

Adams will be making a number of changes to his Bradford XI with Charles Vernam and Oliver crankshaft both in a row to deserve a spot in the page.

Second choice goalkeeper Sam Hornby should appear between the sticks, with Fiacre Kelleher likely a debut in the middle of defense.

Nottingham Forest possible starting line-up:
Horvath; Lawrence-Gabriel, Figueiredo, McKenna, Bong; Yates, Cafu; Konate, Carvalho, Zinckernagel; Taylor

Bradford City possible starting line-up:
Hornby; Threlkeld, Canavan, Kelleher, Ridehalgh; Watt, Sutton; Crankshaft, Cooke, Vernam; Cook

Probability: Nottingham Forest 2-0 Bradford City

With Hughton expected to make sweeping changes, Bradford will envision her chances of causing the fuss. Forest’s fringes will be careful to leave a positive impression, however, which lets us predict a relatively comfortable win for the home side.
