Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest top free betting tips

Championship side Bristol City welcomes Premier League side Nottingham Forest to Ashton Gate on Friday night for a match from the fourth round of the FA Cup. Can Bristol City recreate their heroics against West Ham by causing another cup upset?

Bristol City have won just one of their previous six matches in all competitions, an incredible 1-0 victory over Premier League side West Ham United in the third round of the FA Cup. Tommy Conway's third-minute opener was enough for Liam Manning's side to knock David Moyes' West Ham United out of the FA Cup. Nottingham Forest comes into this fixture without a lot of players due to injuries of International call ups, Ola Aina, Serge Aurier, Moussa Niakhate, Cheikhou Kouyate, and Ibrahim Sangare are all out of contention with other players such as Divock Origi, Anthony Elanga and Felipe all doubtful for this fixture.

Correct outcome prediction: Bristol City to Win

Our first Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest prediction is for Bristol City to continue their cup run by beating another Premier League side. Bristol City will be buoyed by their incredible performance over West Ham and, in front of their fans, will be confident of yet another upset. With Nottingham Forest missing so many players and struggling in their third-round match against Blackpool, we can see the Robins earning a win.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest prediction is for the total number of goals in this fixture to be fewer than 2.5. Bristol City matches have been lacking goals as of late with all of their previous six fixtures seeing fewer than 2.5 goals scored. This shows just how good Bristol City can be defensively but also that they are just about missing something in attack.

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Bristol City

For our final Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest prediction, we have, as usual, gone with a correct score prediction. Bristol City will be confident they can replicate what happened in their replay against West Ham which saw the Robins' defence turn up while Tommy Conway's sole goal earned the win. Nottingham Forest struggled against Blackpool with the first match ending 2-2 and the replay going to extra time where Forest just about earned victory by three goals to two.

​How far will Nottingham Forest's fans have to travel to Bristol? 

The driving distance between Nottingham and Bristol is 144 miles. For fans travelling via private transport, we would advise setting off with plenty of time to spare due to traffic problems around Birmingham and beyond.

For those Nottingham Forest fans making the trip, you will be on the road for around six hours in total. The quickest route is by using the A42 which will then merge into the M42 which will take you around Birmingham, then the M42 changes to the M5 with the M5 taking you to Bristol.
