Forest Can Beat West Brom Tonight
One of the hardest tricks in football is to make an immediate return to the Premier League after being relegated to the Championship. Due to finances it gets harder as each season goes by and many clubs have failed to regain their top flight status at the first attempt. The second tier of English football is full of ambitious clubs who aspire to playing in the Premier League and the newly relegated clubs are up against it from the first match. West Brom went down last season and lost their first match in the Championship. Tonight’s match at Nottingham Forest is crucial for their ambitions and if WEST BROM lose they will be a much bigger price than the current 3/1 with William Hill to return to the Premier League at the end of this season.
West Brom were beaten by Bolton at home on Saturday in the first league match of the season. They almost achieved the great escape by staying in the Premier League after turning things around in their last few matches. However, ultimately they had to deal with the nightmare scenario of dropping from the most lucrative league in the world to its poor relations. West Brom’s squad has been weakened by some key departures and Forest have undergone a massive recruitment drive. The latter could be a better bet to reach the Promised Land and FOREST are the bet tonight to beat West Brom and that outcome is 31/20 with bet365.
Old Trafford is one of the best cricket grounds in the world but it’s virtually empty when Lancashire play home matches in the County Championship. The popularity of T20 cricket will be illustrated tonight when there will be a crowded stadium for Lanchasire’s meeting with Durham in the T20 Blast. Home advantage and passionate support may not be enough to prevent a win for DURHAM who can be backed at 11/10 with Ladbrokes to win this fixture.
There are four Flat meetings in Britain today and 28 races but the total prize fund across the board is £209,000 which is derisory. Racing is thriving at the top end and Glorious Goodwood was a roaring success. However, the bread and butter fare is ordinary and Newbury’s richest race at 3.25pm is worth about £7,500 to the winner. REBEL ASSUALT is the horse to back at 2/1 with Coral.
