Ian Holloway predicts Wolves v Nottingham Forest

The Championship sides kick off 10 televised games in 10 days.

Ian Holloway believes Wolverhampton Wanderers will draw 2-2 with Nottingham Forest at Molineux in the Championship this week, according to his regular Sky Sports predictions column.

Indeed, the former coach and pundit can't pick between the two sides and says he is 'firmly on the fence.'

Holloway feels losing Mike Williamson will be a blow for Wolves but thinks the fact both teams have goals within them should make for an exciting league clash.

Holloway told Sky Sports: "I'm firmly on the fence. Wolves scored two in their last game while Forest, who are on a roll, have notched six in their last two fixtures. Hopefully both teams will go for it as they've got to catch a few points up.

"Wolves have got a very good, albeit young, defence and the fact Mike Williamson has been recalled to Newcastle will hardly help their ability to keep clean sheets."

Both Wolves and Forest sit in midtable, having endured up and down seasons so far this term.

Each club have their reasons for not challenging at the right end of the Championship as of yet but their size would see most expect them to vie for promotion.

Wolves sit in 14th, while Nottingham Forest are a point behind in 15th. Both sides could move into the top half of the table with a win, although Holloway's prediction would see the teams remain roughly where they are.

The Molineux clash takes place on Friday evening, ahead of an even busier weekend of football.
