Nottingham Forest will doubtless be less than happy as to how their season has progressed thus far with the Tricky Trees sitting in the bottom half of the Championship table thanks to a lack of consistency since early in the campaign. Far from being play-off contenders, Forest have failed to impress and it was no surprise when manager Mark Warburton was shown the door to be replaced in a temporary capacity by Gary Brazil.
They held Leeds United to a 0-0 draw in their last outing and this stretched their winless run to five matches, something which needs to change if Forest wish to climb further from the relegation zone. Nevertheless Brazil will be hopeful of steering his charges to all three points when Aston Villa come to town on Saturday evening although we're far from confident of his chances.

Prior to the start of the season, many pundits were backing Aston Villa to lift the Championship title at the end of 2017/18 although that accolade will more than likely be heading to Molineux. Nevertheless the Villans are in with a shout of automatic promotion and they have a boss who knows what it takes to rise into the Premier League with Steve Bruce having led Hull City in such a direction.
The Villans have struggled for consistency however despite having one of the Championship's strongest squads, however they will be in high spirits ahead of this match following wins over Bristol City and Middlesbrough. They have already beaten Nottingham Forest this season and with the Tricky Trees low on confidence at the moment, we don't envisage the hosts managing anything against a Villa defence which has managed back-to-back clean sheets in the Championship ahead of this fixture. Forest have failed to find the net in their last three league games and this has all the makings of an away win-to-nil.
