David Prutton shares Nottingham Forest prediction ahead of Rotherham test

Published

Nottingham Forest face a big challenge as they prepare to face Rotherham United.

Chris Hughton’s side are in a promising run of form having lost just one of their last five fixtures in the Sky Bet Championship.

The weekend saw them picking up a 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers – a result that they’ll be hoping to follow up as they travel to the New York Stadium.

For Rotherham there’s a real need to get three points.

Three defeats in a row has seen the Millers drop into the Championship’s relegation zone meaning that Paul Warne’s side are now facing an uphill battle.

A clash with Forest will be a stern test and EFL pundit David Prutton is predicting a 2-1 victory for Hughton’s side.

Writing for Sky Sports, Prutton said: “A quick glance at Rotherham’s form shows a host of recent defeats, but that alone tells just a fraction of the story.

“Paul Warne’s men have faced three promotion contenders in Norwich, Bournemouth and Cardiff in their last three and the fact they’ve not been beaten by more than a one-goal margin says a lot.

“The Millers just need a stroke of luck, it seems.

“Despite being one of the form sides in the division since mid-December – with just two defeats in 13 since – Forest are still sat down in 17th ahead of their trip to Yorkshire.

“If nothing else, that just further emphasises the unpredictability of this division. I’m backing an away win in this one.”

The verdict

This is a big game for Nottingham Forest.

While Rotherham are struggling at the moment they’re certainly no walkover and I’d expect them to avoid the drop come the end of the season.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Millers pull off a result against Forest tonight.
