Forest showed remarkable resilience after fighting back from two goals down against Boro to finish with a point in the midweek fixture.They now turn their attention to Doncaster, and will be confident of coming away with three points.
Nottingham Forest have a very good record against promoted teams, winning seven of their last eight matches, including a 6-1 drumming of Huddersfield. They have also lost just once this season, compared to Doncaster, who have won only once.
Furthermore, before that solitary win this season, Doncaster hadn’t won a Championship game at the Keepmoat in twelve attempts, and in the process, lost seven consecutive home matches. So Forest will feel very confident about their chances of victory in this weekend fixture. They are very generously priced at 11/10 to beat Doncaster.
There is a strong likelihood Forest will be the first team to score. They have done so in six of their last eight games against promoted opposition. In the last two meetings between these sides at the Keepmoat Stadium, Forest also scored first. They have now done so in their last four away matches. Sky Bet have priced Forest to score first at 8/11.
