Premier League and EFL match goals acca: Go low in games at Forest, Cardiff and Bradford

Nottingham Forest vs Wolves, Cardiff vs Swansea and Bradford vs Grimsby look a good shout in the under 2.5 goals market in this weekend’s football action.

Nottingham Forest vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Nottingham Forest face Wolves on Saturday with both teams in big danger of getting relegated.

There is only a point between them and the City Ground will host a game between two nervous sides. They have met twice already and both games went under 2.5 goals. Wolves won 1-0 in October at home before a 1-1 draw resulted in a penalty shootout in the League Cup three months later.

FIve of Forest's last seven at home have gone under 2.5 goals and with Chris Wood out and Brennan Johnson a doubt, their firepower will be restricted.

Wolves, meanwhile, have only scored 10 goals on the road and this one could be a scoreless stalemate, so back under 2.5.

Cardiff City vs Swansea City

Five of the last seven South Wales derbies between Cardiff and Swansea have gone under 2.5 goals.

The Bluebirds host their deadly rivals with only Preston and Wigan scoring less home goals than their tally of 16. They have, though, only conceded 17 and if you want value for money then Cardiff are not the team to follow every week.

Their last six games have seen the unders land, while Swansea are far from free flowing away from home. Swansea know a defeat would see their rivals close the gap on them to four points and they will be content with dig in for a draw.

Bradford City vs Grimsby Town

Bradford City (1pm KO) are threatening to put a promotion charge together, but have been hampered by too many home draws of late.

Mark Hughes' men have slipped up against teams in the bottom half of League Two and Grimsby are exactly that.

Barrow nicked a 1-0 win, while Hartlepool and Carlisle have both earned draws recently at Valley Parade. And one thing to note is that Valley Parade does not seem to see too many goals. Sam Subbs has shored up the Bantams rearguard and five of their last six at home have gone under 2.5 goals.

With Grimsby in decent form and set to sit deep in West Yorkshire it might be another frustrating afternoon and goals will be hard to come by. So back the unders.
