Key Players To Watch
Andrew Omobamidele – Nottingham Forest
The Leixlip man Republic of Ireland CB had a tough start to his career at Nottingham Forest since his big-money move from Norwich last summer. However, he has become a regular fixture in the Forest defence playing every minute of their last 5 games. A colossal defender with plenty more to come from him.
Bruno Guimaraes – Newcastle
The Brazilian midfielder is one of the best in the league and could be destined for an even bigger move if Newcastle can’t match his expectations.
Not surprising for a Brazilian he is an elite dribbler and passer when compared to other central midfielders his 1.62 Successful Take-Ons Per 90 put him in the 92nd percentile and his 7.32 Progressive Passes in the 89th percentile, making him the club’s best chance at creating chances from expected minimal chances.
Nottingham Forest v Newcastle Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-3 Newcastle
Nottingham Forest have proven to be a tough nut to crack under Nuno and while some of their results have been unspectacular they’ve become more defensively solid which will stand them in good stead for their relegation battle.
Newcastle have gone through a tough period in recent weeks and despite a brilliant result against Aston Villa, they will be disappointed with their result against Luton which piles the pressure on Howe even more.
I fancy Newcastle to have a comfortable victory in this game.
Best Bet: Newcastle By Exactly 2 Goals @ 5/1
