Harrogate Town vs Nottingham Forest U21: Top free betting tips

After consecutive defeats at EnviroVent Stadium, Harrogate Town plays host to Nottingham Forest in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday, 5 September. The Reds make an appearance in this game after a defeat against Brighton U21 in Premier League 2.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Harrogate have scored just three goals in their last five matches in League One and EFL Cup. But they should be confident over the home advantage and the poor defensive form of Nottingham Forest U21. The Tricky Trees have conceded 12 goals in their last five road fixtures. On the scoring end, Forest rattled the net six times in their recent four league outings. Given these figures, we predict the teams to contribute to a total of Over 2.5 Goals in this fixture.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Harrogate has been on the scoring side in three of their recent five League Two fixtures at EnviroVent Stadium. Defensively, Sulphurites managed only two clean sheets in the same duration. Nottingham Forest U21 have also managed to notch goals in three of their recent four games. On the defensive end, the Reds have succeeded in restricting the rivals from scoring in only one game during the aforementioned period. Therefore, we can expect the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this fixture.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Harrogate Town

Harrogate have scored more than one in three of their recent five games in League Two at EnvrioVent Stadium. Sulphurites’ defence has also been favourable as they conceded just one goal in three games during the aforestated period, keeping two clean sheets. On the other hand, Nottingham Forest U21 have leaked multiple goals in three of their previous away five games in Premier League 2. The Reds managed to score more than once in just one match during that course. Hence, we predict a 2-1 lead for Harrogate to collect three points in the first group stage game of EFL Trophy.
