Match Preview

  • Following three winless games (D2, L1), Cardiff City got their play-off bid back on track by beating South Wales rivals Swansea 1-0. Despite sitting in eighth, omens look good as the ‘Bluebirds’ are one-point ahead of their tally this time last season, when they also reached the play-offs, and only need to win half of their remaining games to reach the number of points that was needed to reach the play-offs last campaign (70 points).
  • However Cardiff have lost more games at home than they’ve won this Championship season (W7, D4, L8), although they did score 3+ goals in all seven home triumphs, of which six were vs opponents inside the bottom half. Cardiff have also emerged victorious in five of the past seven home H2Hs.
  • Six without winning (D3, L3) is concerning for Nottingham Forest, who aren’t out of the woods yet, despite a seven-point gap to the bottom three. Scoring would help their cause but goals aren’t guaranteed as no team has seen more of their league games finish with under 2.5 goals (78.95%) than Forest.
  • Losing only two of their last ten Championship away fixtures shows Forest are hard to beat (W4, D4), but only four times since the start of 2020 have they recorded 2+ goals in an away league clash. Furthermore, all five away wins this season came to clubs placed 15th or below, and they’ve won only one of 21 fixtures (home/away) they’ve played against current top-half clubs (D7, L13).
  • Players to watch: Kieffer Moore has only scored more goals against three other clubs than Forest, and netted a brace in Cardiff’s 2-0 reverse fixture win. Meanwhile, just two players have more Championship yellow cards than Forest’s Tobias Figueiredo, and 66.67% of those came in away matches (6/9).
  • Hot stat: Forest have failed to win 77.27% of their April games played since the start of the 2012/13 season (W10, D11, L23).
