Barnsley v Forest betting preview with 888sport

25 November 2016

A full betting preview for Barnsley v Nottingham Forest is now available in association with 888sport.

Barnsley 6/4

Forest are a value-looking 9/5 to make it back-to-back wins on the road for the first time since May.

Last weekend’s welcome victory at Ipswich should serve as a major confidence booster as The Reds look to climb further away from danger, and with the hosts winless in three and scoreless in their last two, this looks a good opportunity for Montanier’s men.

Saying that, Barnsley have tightened up at the back of late as recent consecutive scoreless draws will testify, so it could be nip-and-tuck, with a goal or less in the match 3/1 and another 0-0 19/2.

Britt Assombalonga’s first-half brace was enough to seal the deal at Portman Road and if you fancy another strong opening 45 from the Reds, you can get 19/20 on them in the ‘draw no bet’ first half market and 37/20 on an away win at both HT and FT.

Assombalonga is once again the visitors’ major threat and is 21/5 to open the scoring, with Henri Lansbury a tempting 17/2.

Prediction: 0-1 6/1

Bet of the day: Forest win 9/5

Outside punt: Assombalonga in a 1-0 win 26/1
