Recent respective form guides

Nottingham Forest's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Forest have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Sheff. Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Blades, and 8 goals against.

Nottm. Forest are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 17 points from their 21 games thus far. Sheff. Utd.'s total of 32 points from their 21 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.
