We’re thinking that Nottingham Forest could find themselves struggling to score against this Cardiff City side who we think might score at least once to put them ahead.

With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 advantage for Cardiff City at the end of the 90.

We’ll see what happens.
