Betting tips Millwall vs. Nottingham Forest

Forest enter Rowett's Lion's Den

Friday night means Championship action and this week see the resilient Nottingham Forest travel to Millwall. Can Lamouchi’s side leave the Lion’s den with another three points? Have a read of our preview here:

Rowett’s revolution

Ok so revolution might be overstating it somewhat, but there is no question that Gary Rowett has done some fine work for the Lions since taking over from club legend Neil Harris.

He has overseen a run of just one defeat in seven games which has also seen Millwall go on a mini unbeaten run of four games since losing to Reading on the road.

The magnitude of the task for Rowett was not particularly massive given the fine work done by his predecessor but this is, nonetheless, a very important time in the former Birmingham manager’s career. His reputation took a big knock at Stoke (he was not to be the only one) and so doing well in South East London will be a vital rebuilding exercise.

He has made an excellent start which has put the Lions in a position where the play-off places are in sight over the horizon but the expectations at Millwall will allow him more leeway than he got during his time in the Potteries.

The fact is, if he can mastermind a victory against Forest, they will move within three points of Sabri Lamouchi’s side and then people can start taking their play-off talk a lot more seriously.

Hitting the target helps

Until Forest lost to Cardiff at the weekend, they had been on a run of four games without defeat and only two defeats in their previous 16 games. It was a bit of a shock, therefore, that Neil Harris’ new side were able to leave the City Ground with a win.

The Reds had a remarkable 32 shots in the defeat against the Bluebirds but only two of those were on target sparking the following response from Lamouchi.

"The numbers, they are clear. But we can do no more than that. We can only try to hit the target. We did create big chances.

"Normally we are very efficient with the goals we score from the number of chances we create. This time it was the opposite.

"It is one more loss at home, unfortunately, we missed a lot, because we created a lot. Then they scored with their one real shot in the first half. It was a big disappointment."

He will be expecting a far more efficient performance on Friday.

Millwall vs. Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

Millwall are on a good run and will be hard to beat at home while Forest have scored less than two goals in seven of the last nine games. For this reason, we are tipping this one to finish with under 2.5 goals at odds of 8/13 here.
