Why Nottingham Forest should beat Brighton

Ahead of the game, a number of stats have come to light highlighting why a Forest win is likely this weekend.

  • Nottingham Forest have won their past two home league games against Brighton, having failed to win any of their previous six (D4 L2). They won 3-1 in this fixture last season.
  • Having won their first two top-flight meetings with Forest in 1979/80, Brighton are now without a victory against them in eight (D2 L6).
  • Brighton have scored and conceded in their past 16 Premier League matches, the joint-longest run in history, along with Everton between September 2012 and January 2013.
  • Taiwo Awoniyi has scored 10 goals and assisted two in his past 14 Premier League games. Awoniyi is averaging a goal or assist every 123 minutes in the competition for Forest, with only Stan Collymore (one every 119 minutes) having a better average among players with 10 or more appearances for the club.
