'Forest fans won't thank me for saying this': Sutton makes Nottingham Forest claim ahead of tonight's match

Nottingham Forest host Fulham at the City Ground in the Premier League tonight.

Steve Cooper’s Reds will be desperate to get to winning ways against their fellow top-flight newcomers.

Forest have just one win this season, and have lost their last three, leaving them second from bottom in the table.

They squandered a two-goal lead in their 3-2 defeat to fellow promoted side Bournemouth in their previous outing.

Meanwhile, Forest’s opponents on the night are tenth in the standings with two wins and as many draws and losses.

In addition, Fulham have the in-form Aleksandar Mitrovic in their ranks – he has six goals already this term.

Chris Sutton, in his latest BBC Sport prediction article, doesn’t feel Forest will triumph at NG2 tonight.

He claims that the Reds once again won’t have enough to keep Mitrovic at bay.

“I thought the manner of that defeat could be damaging for Forest and their fans,” he wrote on BBC Sport.

“And we might find out how resilient they are here because Fulham will have a real go at them.

“Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice when Fulham won this fixture 4-0 in the Championship last season.

“Forest fans won’t thank me for saying this, but I don’t think they will keep Mitrovic quiet this time either, even though they have a completely different team.”

Sutton’s score prediction is for the Reds to lose 2-0 to the Cottagers.

As per Sportskeeda, this will be the first Premier League meeting between the two teams.

Forest and Fulham have played each other 102 times across all competitions.

The west Londoners enjoy a 42-32 lead in wins over Foresr, while 28 games have ended in draws.
