The Stat Attack - Nottingham Forest

The Stat Attack - Nottingham Forest

Lenny367 once again brings you the stats that matter ahead of tomorrow`s clash against Nottingham Forest.

We first made the trip from West London to the City Ground in Nottingham for a league game on the 19 February 1949 in what was then the 2nd Division, sharing the points in a goalless draw.

Since then we have made the journey a further 19 times and have yet to record our first victory. Of the 20 league games played we have shared the points 8 times and come away empty handed 12 times.

Looking at the scores in these games it shows that a 0-0 draw has been the most frequent score, happening on 4 occasions.

This is closely followed by a 1-1 draw, 4-0 defeat and 1-0 defeat which have all occurred 3 times.

Since Paulo Sousa`s arrival we have played away 5 times and only lost at Sheffield Wednesday in his first trip away from Loftus Road. In those games we have only conceded 4 goals while scoring 8 times.

In their last 5 home games Forest have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 2, winning the last 2 home games, which matches our winning our last 2 away games.

Our scoring stats remain the same as previous weeks, with us looking best in front of goal in between 15 and 30 minutes and in the last 15 minutes of the game.

Defensively there is no particular time in the game when we appear to be more vulnerable with goals being scored equally over the 90 minutes.

At home Forest score most of their goals in the last 15 minutes of the first half, but seem vulnerable to conceding between 60 and 75 minutes.

Looking at this fixture historically the odds rule out an away win, but would point to a draw. Given the recent strength of our defence another 0-0 draw could well be on the cards, however I believe we will go a goal behind in the first half but come back to secure a point after the break.

Lenny`s Prediction 1-1 Draw
