News Insights

  • Nottingham Forest are currently 17th in the EPL table.

The narrative surrounding Nottingham Forest ever since they returned to the EPL has been a fascinating one. 

With plenty of money spent and big names coming and going, Forest weren’t a side tipped by many EPL betting sites to be in the relegation shakeup this term.

However, Forest have seriously struggled this season and are in a relegation dog fight, with a potential points deduction on the horizon too

Tricky times for the Tricky Trees

Having seen former manager Steve Cooper leave the club in December 2023, many people expected Nottingham Forest to kick on this term.

Nuno Espirito Santo has steadied the ship somewhat at the City Ground, but Forest cannot seem to put points on the board consistently.

Late dropped points against Luton Town and Liverpool in recent weeks could prove costly and Forest cannot seem to detach themselves from trouble.

Point deduction wait

Having seen relegation rivals Everton docked 6 points for financial issues this term, Forest now find themselves in a similar boat.

Nottingham Forest have pleaded guilty to the curious financial rules laid out by the EPL and UEFA and are expecting the book to be thrown at them as a result.

Picking up the same sanction as Everton would see Forest drop into the bottom three, with just 9 games to play this season and it is a situation that is intriguing punters and EPL betting sites.

Staying up or going down?

The outcome of a potential points deduction is set to have a direct impact on Forest’s season and there is an anxious wait ahead.

Regardless of the decision made, having clarity on the situation is sure to galvanize Forest, who have plenty of work to do if they are to stay up.

There is plenty of football to be played and Nottingham Forest are firmly in the mix to drop back down into the Championship at A$3.50 with GetSetBet.
