Betting Tip: @ Nottingham Forest to win @ 5/4 with williamhill

It’s clear why Sky Sports have picked this game out as the televised option on Tuesday night, with Burton Albion managed by Nigel Clough, the son of the great Brian who was Nottingham Forest’s most legendary manager.

This is also a Midlands derby between a League One side who will hope to claim the scalp of their bigger neighbours, having dropped down a level from the Championship last term.

The Pirelli Stadium is quite a compact ground that bigger teams have struggled to play in over recent years, with the Brewers having won four of their seven home matches this season.

They also beat Burnley in the previous round of the competition and have little to lose, with Albion having recently beaten Bristol Rovers and Plymouth as well as drawing away to League One leaders Portsmouth.

Aitor Karanka is Nottingham Forest manager and he’s struggled to get the Tricky Trees into the Championship promotion mix right now, with Forest drawing seven of their thirteen matches.

They have overcome Newcastle and Stoke to reach this stage of the competition so this actually represents their easiest assignment on paper and it will be the third away game in the space of a week after trips to Bolton and Leeds.

However, Forest have a big squad and Karanka might use this match to field the likes of Matty Cash and Adlene Guedioura, with the visitors potentially proving their class over the ninety minutes.
