The English Championship will return this weekend for the final time this season and will see Hull City host Nottingham Forest at the MKM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Hull City have achieved safety on their return to the Championship and will now be targeting a top-half league finish next season. They were beaten 5-0 by Bristol City in their last game and will be looking to shake that off at the weekend.

The Tigers sit 18th in the league table with 50 points from 45 games. They will look to return to winning ways on Saturday to end their season with a victory.

Nottingham Forest missed the chance to secure automatic qualification to the Premier League after losing 1-0 to Bournemouth in a cagey clash at the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Reds sit third in the Championship standings with 79 points. They have already secured playoff football and will be targeting victory this weekend in preparation for that.

Hull City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Hull City have lost two of their last three games, including an embarrassing defeat last time out. They have, however, won back-to-back games at the MKM Stadium and will be looking to capitalize on their home advantage this weekend.

Nottingham Forest's latest result ended a four-game winning streak and they will be determined to shake that off as they prepare for the playoffs. The visitors should win this one.

Prediction: Hull City 1-2 Nottingham Forest
