David Prutton predicts outcome of Nottingham Forest clash with Luton


It was a solid point on the road for Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon as they faced Reading at Select Car Leasing Stadium – but they would have hoped for much more.

The Reds only had 42% possession against the Royals, but had more shots, but Steve Cooper’s side failed to take their chance.

However, they have extended their unbeaten streak to four games since a 4-0 loss to Fulham at City Ground, but three of them have been draws.

They returned home on Tuesday night as Luton Town lead the M1 after two straight losses, the most recent on Friday night against Queens Park Rangers.

The Hats have had an extra day to recover from their next opponents, but EFL presenter David Prutton doesn’t think it will make a difference for Nathan Jones’ side.

That’s because the former Forest midfielder predicts his former team will run out of 1-0 winners on the night, which would propel Cooper’s side closer to the play-off spots.

The verdict

Aside from that result against Fulham which was a bit of a comeback, Forest has been very good under Steve Cooper and stepped out of the relegation zone, and a win over Luton would push them even further where they want to go. to be.

It won’t be an easy task, even though the Hatters have lost three of their last four games – they have dangerous players like Elijah Adebayo who can be a real nuisance to the defense.

But back at home Forest will be hard to beat and if Brennan Johnson thrives he will be hard to beat – I think it will be 3-1 against the Tricky Trees that night.
