Brighton – Nottingham Predictions and PREVIEW
- Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi is urging his side to find their shooting boots after blaming back-to-back defeats ‘to nil’ in games against Tottenham and Brentford on poor finishing. The Seagulls have dropped out of the Premier League (PL) top four after losing those fixtures, although De Zerbi insisted Brighton “played a good game” – until they reached the final third that is.
- The Italian is still awaiting his first win since replacing Graham Potter in the Seagulls dugout (D1, L2) despite starting positively with a 3-3 draw at Anfield against Liverpool. He will now hope to build on a strong home record, with Brighton losing just once in their last eight PL outings at the AMEX Stadium (W4, D3), keeping four clean sheets in the process, which could prove a godsend for a side that’s struggling to score!
- The visit of the PL’s basement dwellers should inspire further confidence, given Nottingham Forest have only picked up three wins in their last dozen away clashes against Brighton (D4, L5). On top of that, you’d have to go back over 23 years for the Tricky Trees’ last PL win on the road, that after starting the 2022/23 campaign with four defeats and a draw whilst conceding an eye-watering 14 goals along the way!
- The most recent of those losses came at the hands of Wolves on Saturday (1-0), with Forest’s pre-match Twitter post of Emmanuel Dennis playing with three Wolf pups captioned “playtime” coming back to bite them. On the pitch, manager Steve Cooper admitted his side were “nowhere near good enough with the ball”, and although it didn’t trip them up on Saturday, Forest’s biggest problem appears to be holding onto leads, as they’ve scored first in three of their last five games but picked up just one point in the process (D1, L4).
- Players to watch: Brighton defender Lewis Dunk has picked up his joint-second highest career tally of yellow cards against Nottingham Forest, receiving four cautions in nine clashes (W4, D3, L2). Meanwhile Forest’s Steve Cook has only won two of his six meetings with the Seagulls (D2, L2) and has also been booked in three of Forest’s last four games.
- Hot stat: Nottingham Forest’s seven PL goals conceded in the 15 minutes following half-time is a league-high.
