Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Forest have conceded a disappointing 8 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.

Walsall's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Saddlers have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Nottm. Forest are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide League Division One with a return of just 29 points from their 29 games thus far. Walsall find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 36 points from their 30 matches.
