Leicester v Nottingham Forest Odds: Back The Foxes To Nick A Tight Game

Nigel PearsonWe can look forward to a massive midlands derby on Saturday lunchtime as Nottingham Forest make the short trip to play Leicester City in a crucial Championship clash. The rivalry between these two teams is always a hot one and with the teams both in good form this one is looking like a particularly tasty affair. A win for either side will put them in a great position in the table but it is the home side who will start the match as the war favourites with the bookmakers.

The Foxes currently find themselves in fifth place in the Championship Table and a win against Forest would push them closer towards those all important promotion places. They have however suffered a slight dip in form in recent weeks with just one point from their last nine and Manager Nigel Pearson will be eager to see them pick up the three points against their local rivals. They do have a great record at the King Power Stadium winning six of their seven game to date and with that in mind they will be tough to beat once again this weekend.

Leicester have been rock solid at the back so far this season at home having conceding only four goals in their seven games and that is likely to be the foundation of their success on Saturday lunchtime. Punters wanting to back Leicester to beat Forest by any score line can currently get a price of 4/5 with William Hill which highlights their favouritism.

Forest have been in decent form recently and they will of course have designs on leaving the King Power with at least a point under their arm. They produced a dogged display last weekend to claim a 0-0 draw against high flying Middlesbrough and they will certainly be no pushovers on Saturday lunchtime.

Sean O'Driscoll has turned Forest into a solid looking team and while they don't score too many they have proven tough to beat away from home with only one defeat to their name so far this campaign. Punters wanting to back the upset here can currently get a price of 16/5 with Hills about Forest winning the match by any score. That reflects the size of the task facing the away team but they shouldn't be ignored here in what is sure to be a feisty local affair with plenty of nerves on show.

We expect this to be a hard fought match as always between these two with a low scoring match on the cards. Neither side has been what you would call prolific this season but Leicester look likely to be just too strong on home soil. Pearson will be expecting his defence to keep it tight as always and we take the Foxes to nick a 1-0 win against a game Forest side on Saturday.
