Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Forest have scored 6, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. These low-scoring games have seen just 5 goals scored and conceded.

Nottm. Forest find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 12 games have yielded only 6 points. Cardiff City's total of 19 points from their 12 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.
