It can’t be understated how good of a job Gary O’Neill has done since taking over at Wolves just days before the start of the 2023-24 season. The Midlands side now sit 12th in the standings, and they could potentially move into the top half of the table if they are able to maintain their excellent home record in the Premier League.
Wolves landed a second win in four league matches in midweek, as they battled to maximum points against Burnley at Molineux. Their only goal in that success was netted just three minutes before the break, as Hwang Hee-Chan netted his eighth goal in 15 Premier League appearances. That form already illustrates his best scoring season in the English top-flight.
Steve Cooper is coming under increasing pressure at the City Ground at this stage of the season, as Forest are flirting dangerously with the relegation places in the Premier League. They have lost each of their last three before the latest round of midweek matches, and that leaves them just six points above the drop zone.
Wolves landed a 1-0 win in this fixture last term, meaning that they have now won two of their last three home matches against Forest. However, in league matches, Forest have won three of their previous five visits to Molineux, which could be an interesting trend to consider this weekend.
Wolves vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
I always have faith in Wolves when they are playing in front of their home fans, especially when they come up against sides at the bottom end of the league standings. Therefore, we will be siding with the home side landing maximum points on Saturday.
