Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Nottingham Forest vs Barnsley in the Championship on Jan 25. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

The game between Nottingham Forest and Barnsley is set to be a banger as we are likely to see some goals from the Forest camp. Nottingham Forest have recovered from a disastrous start and currently occupy 10th position. Barnsley have been suffering as of late and sit right at the bottom of the Championship table, managing just two wins so far this season. The only potential saving grace for Barnsley is that they still have a couple of games in hand, but with this upcoming fixture against a strong Forest side, anything is far from certain.

Forest are still under threat from teams just below them in the table who are still playing catch up with games in hand, as Forest look to close the gap on the top six. However, a win against Barnsley will only bolster their claim for a play-off spot and increase their lead over sides such as Luton Town and Sheffield United.

Nottingham Forest to Win to Nil

Nottingham Forest look likely to win their upcoming fixture at home to Barnsley without conceding to the Tykes. Forest have only lost two games to Championship sides below them in the table, an absolutely phenomenal record. Forest have only had three losses since mid-September, although two of those losses came within their last four games. Despite this slight setback, Forest still look to be in form with a good 1-0 win away from home at Millwall.

Barnsley have been experiencing a poor run of form and currently sit at the very bottom of the table. The Tykes have only managed to bag themselves two wins all season, with eight draws and 15 losses to their name. With some games still in hand, they could be looking to remove themselves from a possible relegation battle, although this looks unlikely to start against a strong Nottingham Forest side.

Forest are set to capitalise on Barnsley’s unfortunate season to help them cement themselves in the running for a top six finish, and could very well go for the jugular by pounding the Barnsley net all game.

Nottingham Forest Form, squad news, opinion

Nottingham Forest have experienced an astounding run of form for most of the 2021/22 season as they have only lost two game to sides outside the current top seven. Since October the 29th, Forest have only lost twice and even knocked out Arsenal in the FA Cup.

Forest do have a small list of noteworthy injuries that will continue to impact their squad for the upcoming fixture against Barnsley. The injuries include left-back Max Lowe, centre-back Rodrigo Ely, and left-winger Alex Mighten. There are also several suspension risks across the Forest squad with players sitting on four yellow cards. This includes centre-backs Scott McKenna and Tobias Figueiredo, goalkeeper Brice Samba, and defensive midfielder Jack Colback.

The general outlook for Nottingham Forest is that they look strong to make an impact against Barnsley. Despite the absence of numerous players due to injuries, the team has still managed to put out a very capable squad.

Barnsley form, squad news, opinion

The Tykes have been experiencing quite a poor 2021/22 season as they have now dropped below Derby in the table, occupying the bottom spot. Their last nine matches have not brought them much hope for getting out of the relegation zone, with their only points coming from three draws.

The Tykes still have a couple of their players out of action for this upcoming game against Nottingham Forest. Forward Obbi Oulare and centre-back Aapo Halme are both still out due to injuries, and striker Cauley Woodrow is unlikely to make an appearance.

Things don’t look good for last season’s surprise play-off hopefuls. Their ongoing bout of poor form for pretty much the entire season up to this point means they are unlikely to make any significant impact against Nottingham Forest who look to be in a much better position to take all three points.

History

The last game between Barnsley and Nottingham Forest held in September 2021 at the Oakwell Stadium ended with a commanding victory of 1-3 to Forest. The previous 2020/21 season saw the Tykes claim ultimate bragging rights over Forest as they claimed a 2-0 win at home and a 0-0 draw away.

About the Venue

The City Ground in West Bridgford has seen its fair share of special moments over the years as it was founded and opened in 1898. The stadium has a capacity of 30,445 and its most recent expansion project of the Trent End finished in 1996.

Conclusion

The next fixture between Nottingham Forest and Barnsley is setting up nicely for the home side who will likely look to make the most of scoring and racking up the points against a team that sits at the very bottom of the Championship table. We are likely to see goals from the Forest camp, but unfortunately it is difficult to see Barnsley making any real impact against a Forest squad that is surely setting up to bolster their hopes of a top six finish.
