David Prutton expects us to come away with a comfortable 2-0 win against Birmingham City tomorrow evening.
The Sky Sports pundit thinks that we need to put away teams a lot more than we have done at the start of this season:
“Too many draws appear to be costing Nottingham Forest again already, although they did well to claw a point back at Wigan last weekend. They have drawn three times in four games so far and need to start being a bit more ruthless.”
The Blues won’t be an easy nut to crack. Although they have failed to win so far this season, Garry Monk’s side have been pretty decent defensively, conceding just once in their two away games.
We shouldn’t have too many issues defensively as their record for scoring goals away from St Andrew’s is pretty appalling. They have yet to score on the road this campaign and managed just 17 all of last season. I expect us to pin them back for long spells and for them to finally crack under pressure.
I don’t believe it will be a goal fest though, and I think it could be a narrow win. I’m going for a 1-0 victory.
