Nottingham Forest don't lose at home. Allardyce will be Hammering at the door though!

Nottingham Forest don't lose at home. That's the rule when betting on games taking place at the City Ground. Ok Ok, they lost a couple late on last season when under pressure, but save that, the rule is pretty much fail proof

Sam Allardyce will bring his West Ham United side up to Nottingham looking to continue the good work they have done on the road so far this season with wins against both Doncaster and Watford. A quick look at the Championship table and the position of those two clubs and we see that maybe that wont be the proudest boast come season end.

West Ham have shown their vulnerability already this season with an opening match loss at home to Cardiff City and Leeds held them 2-2 at Upton Park. With the embarrassing exit from the Carling Cup to Aldershot midweek, the wins away from home are glossing over what is not quite the form it looks.

Forest too have beaten Doncaster at the Keepmoat this season and drawn both home games versus Leicester city and Barnsley. A loss at Millwall is the only blot on the copy book so far and Steve Maclaren will be expecting to secure three points today.

Recommendation: Forest to Frustrate the Hammers and take all three points - HOME WIN @ 2.80
