Match preview: Nottingham Forest vs Hull City

24 October 2019

Nottingham Forest look to extend their unbeaten run to four games on Sunday afternoon as they take on Hull City at Eastwood CFC and a win would also see the side end the month with a 100% winning record.

The Reds have picked up three consecutive wins across all competitions and come into the fixture looking to build on their last league win against Loughborough Foxes which came two weeks ago. Forest picked up all three points away from home as they pulled themselves closer to the league leaders. Precious Hamilton netted either side of half-time and Bex Rayner bagged a spectacular effort to round off a great team display from the side. 

Forest currently sit seven positions above Sunday’s opposition as The Tigeresses sit bottom of the league standings having only picked up three points this season. Their only win came in their last outing as they picked up an impressive 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion last Sunday. The Baggies were ranked 10 points higher than the Yorkshire side before kick-off but goals from Rachael Ackroyd either side of the break ensured the side chalked their first points of the campaign on the board and unsurprisingly the side will be looking to build on their momentum come Sunday. 

Precious Hamilton will be raring to go on Sunday afternoon as she’ll be aiming to get back amongst the goals after sitting out The Reds Nottinghamshire County Cup tie last Sunday. The forward sits at the top of the league’s scoring charts with 11 goals in seven appearances and has found the back of the net at least once in every one of the side’s league games. Bex Rayner will be another Red the opposition will be keeping a watchful eye on in the game as she has become a pivotal figure in Forest’s attack. Rayner has played every minute of the side’s league games this season and has become indispensable in the middle of the park and after bagging her wonder goal against the Foxes she’ll be looking to add to her season tally at the weekend.
