Nottingham Forest vs Coventry City Prediction

Nottingham Forest were not expected to play in the Premier League next season, but they have defied the odds to do so. Steve Cooper deserves immense credit for the work he has done since joining the club. Brennan Johnson was one of the stars last season; the 21-year old is subsequently attracting interest from clubs like Manchester United and Leicester City.

Another huge one for Nottingham Forest. Brennan Johnson signs new long-terms contract and decides to stay despite interest from many PL clubs, full agreement in place. ๐Ÿ”ด๐Ÿค #NFFCDean Henderson loan deal with Man United, to be signed soon. #MUFC

The club have not been idle. They have already signed Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin, while also agreeing a deal to bring goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United. They will certainly be a force to be reckoned with next season.

Coventry City, on the other hand, finished 12th in the EFL Championship last season. Swedish striker Viktor Gyokeres was key for them last season, while midfielder Gustavo Hamer produced some top performances as well. Hamer's performances have seen him linked with Fulham and Celtic as a result.

With players still likely to be rusty, it will be interesting to see how the managers utilize the talent under their disposal. Nottingham Forest for the win though.
