Match preview: Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United

Nottingham Forest will take a 2-1 lead back to the City Ground after winning in Sheffield.

Steve Cooper’s side produced an impressive performance at Bramall Lane to put themselves firmly in the driving seat.

Jack Colback and Brennan Johnson both netted for Forest to fire them into a 2-0 lead.

However, the Reds will be kicking themselves for conceding late on to offer the Blades a slight glimmer of hope.

Forest finished the season on fire winning 9 of their last 12 matches.

Cooper’s men also have an excellent home record this campaign winning 12 of their last 14 games at the City Ground.

Sheffield United score late consolation

Sheffield United managed to pull a goal back late on to keep their play-off final hopes alive.

Sander Berge netted in stoppage time to reduce the deficit to just one goal.

Although, Paul Heckingbottom’s team still face a very tough task in trying to come from behind in Nottingham.

The Blades have won just a third of their games on their travels this season and now head to one of the toughest grounds in the division.
