After 5 defeats in 5 matches Nottingham Forest parted company with former manager of Sabri Lamouchi in the week, and have turned to Chris Hughton to kickstart their season.
The Chris Hughton era begins with a very difficult challenge when they visit an inform Blackburn Rovers. Nottingham Forest have not tasted victory at Ewood Park in their last 5 visits and not even the new managerial bounce will be enough for them to turn around their terrible season. The bookmakers have given Blackburn Rovers a generous price of 10/11 to secure the three points against Nottingham Forest.
Since Blackburn return to the Championship under the Tony Mowbray they have had two successful seasons finishing 15th and 11th. It appears that with the fire power of Championship top goal scorer, Adam Armstrong they look a good punt to challenge for a place in the top 6. After two impressive victories against Wycombe and Derby, SkyBet have shortened their price for Blackburn to win the title to 18/1. Deadline day signing Barry Douglas brings vital experience into a defensive line which has kept 3 clean sheets in their last 3 matches. Blackburn will look to continue their good form against an out of form Nottingham Forest and look to challenge for promotion.
