History of the Nottingham Forest v Sheffield United fixture

Sheff. Utd. face a trip to Nottingham Forest at City Ground on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 54 games played, Blades have recorded 15 wins, and Nottm. Forest have come away with 24 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2004, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Forest have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Sheff. Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 leaked at the wrong end.

Nottm. Forest are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 39 points from their 41 games thus far. Sheff. Utd. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola Championship, picking up 65 from their 41 games so far.
