Blackpool vs Nottingham Forest: Top free betting tips

Our Blackpool vs Nottingham Forest prediction is for a close match that will end up with Premier League Nottingham Forest making it through to the fourth round.

League One side Blackpool are proving to be somewhat of a pain for Nottingham Forest having met in the FA Cup third round last season with Blackpool winning by four goals to one and then again, meeting in the third round this year, with the original tie ending in a 2-2 draw. Blackpool is in good form having beaten Lincoln, Burton and Exeter in their previous five matches while Nottingham Forest has beaten Newcastle and Manchester United in their most recent Premier League matches.
