History of the Nottingham Forest v Norwich City fixture

Nottm. Forest play host to Norwich City at City Ground at tea-time on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Forest are clearly on top, having won 18 and lost only 7 of the 31 games.

The last time the two teams met at Nottm. Forest was back in August 2003, over five years ago, with Nottm. Forest running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. Forest have conceded a disappointing 7 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Norwich City's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Canaries have conceded 9 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Nottm. Forest are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 12 points from their 17 games thus far. Norwich City are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 17 from their 17 matches played.
