Nottingham Forest's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Forest have scored 8, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.
Reading's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. A generous 6 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
