Wolves vs Nottingham Forest predictions: More woe for Forest at Wolves
- Nottingham Forest were hammered 5-0 at Fulham on Wednesday
- Wolves have beat Man City and Spurs and drawn with Villa and Newcastle at home
- Recommended bet: Wolves to win to zero
Steve Cooper will want a reaction from his Nottingham Forest side when they head to Wolves, but it looks like being another difficult afternoon for the struggling East Midlands outfit.
Forest were hammered 5-0 by Fulham on Wednesday and Cooper, despite still being backed by the fans afterwards, pulled no punches when admitting the performance was simply not good enough.
His side are on a worryingly poor run of form and a trip to a dangerous Wolves side, who edged out Burnley at Molineux on Tuesday, is unlikely to offer them much solace.
Wolves winger Pedro Neto remains absent with a hamstring injury, but he is making progress as he bids to be fit before 2023 is out, while Joe Hodge is still on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.
Rayan Ait Nouri is also a doubt for the hosts with an ankle issue.
Forest striker Taiwo Awoniyi remains out following knee surgery, while there is a concern for the visitors over former Wolves defender Willy Boly, who has a muscle strain.
Wolves are unbeaten in their last five home games, winning three of them.
Forest have lost their last four games and have only won once away from home all season.
Cooper's men have failed to score in four of their last five away games.
Forest have won only one of the last 10 league meetings between the sides.
Forest's four-game losing streak suggests they are set to be involved in the relegation scrap this season.
They were competitive against West Ham, Brighton and Everton but the manner of the heavy loss at Fulham in midweek has set alarm bells ringing.
It was the sort of defeat that demands a response but a trip to Molineux, where Wolves have not in their last five, beating and holding much better sides than Forest, suggests this will end in another defeat for Cooper's side.
A home win to zero, considering a fragile Forest have failed to score in their last two and have drawn a blank in four of their last five away matches, appeals.
