Wolves vs Nottingham Forest tips and predictions: Forest's dreadful run to continue at Molineux

Nottingham Forest will need a huge improvement to take all three points back to the East Midlands on Saturday afternoon, as they face an impressive Wolves side (1500 GMT).

Forest have been woeful recenty, with Steve Cooper's men losing four games on the trot, including the 5-0 humilation at Fulham on Wednesday. 

The pressure is all on Cooper, with this game reportedly being his last chance saloon, it will be a tough test for Forest as Wolves have gone toe-to-toe with the league's big boys this season.

Gary O'Neil's men have not had the best of luck with refereeing decisions this season, but they have had impressive victories against Manchester City and Tottenham and were very unlucky not to come away with the same outcome in their games with Manchester United and Newcastle.

Coming off the back of a 1-0 win over Burnley in midweek, Wolves will be looking for a second Premier League on the bounce, something which they haven't done all season.

But Wolves could put worries about their ability to produce consistent performances to bed, as Forest have conceded 18 goals in their eight away games this season, an average of 2.25 goals per game.

Wolves have been involved in several entertaining encounters this season at Molineux, with games there having averaged 3.14 goals per game in the Premier League this season and coupling that with Forest's defensive frailties the goals market will be interesting, with over 2.5 match goals worth a punt.

Hwang Hee-Chan has been in hot form in front of goal this season, as the South Korean has scored eight Premier League goals this season, a total only bettered by Erling Haaland, Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-Min.

Forest have only scored six goals on the road this season, the third lowest tally in the league, and are without top scorer Taiwo Awoniyi so they are having to rely on Divock Origi and Chris Wood, who hasn't been able to hit a barn door recently with just 11 Premier League goals in his last 72 appearances.

Given the circumstances, a home win will be a banker and may spell the end of Cooper's Forest reign.


Team news

Wolves winger Pedro Neto still remains absent with a hamstring injury he sustained in October.

Rayan Ait Nouri and Jose Sa are doubtful after missing the win over Burnley in midweek.

Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi is still out with a groin/hip/pelvic injury and is not expected back until March.

Willy Boly missed the trip to Fulham and his return date is unknown.


Key stats

Wolves' Hwang Hee-Chan has scored in four of his last five home matches.

Forest have the second worst away record in the league this season, only taking four points out of a possible 24.

Forest have only beaten Wolves twice in their last 10 meetings, with five Wolves victories and three draws.
