Scunthorpe vs Forest – All form points towards away win

| 16.02.2011

Nottingham Forest are presented with the perfect opportunity to improve their disappointing scoring record on their travels this season when they head to Scunthorpe next in the Championship.

Match Odds

Despite scoring just 14 goals in their Championship away games this season, Nottingham Forest have still managed to secure 20 points on the road and they head to Scunthorpe next, who have conceded more goals at home than any other club in the division.

Nottingham Forest are 4/5 in the Championship betting odds and have been in terrific form of late, avoiding defeat in their last ten league games.

Meanwhile, Scunthorpe have lost 12 of their last 15 games in the Championship and have failed to win any of their last seven.

Furthermore, they have been defeated in seven of their last eight games at Glanford Park.

This dire run has resulted in Scunthorpe slipping seven points from safety in the Championship standings and they will need to rediscover the winning habit soon if they harbour any hopes of avoiding relegation.

Scunthorpe’s betting odds are 7/2 to beat Nottingham Forest, which would be just their second home victory of the campaign.

Half Time/Full Time

With Nottingham Forest largely expected to secure maximum points, better value may be found in the 13/8 that they are ahead both at half time and full time.

All of Nottingham Forest’s last six goals in all competitions have come in the first half of games and their fast starts should ensure that they are leading at the interval against Scunthorpe.

Meanwhile, the hosts have only scored the opening goal in ten of their league matches this season, which is not only the lowest in the Championship, but also enhances the chances of Forest taking the lead.

A £25 stake on Nottingham Forest beating Scunthorpe 2-0 would return £150. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
