Spurs vs Forest - betting preview with Marathonbet
23 September 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Nottingham Forest arrive at White Hart Lane on Wednesday hopeful of pulling off an early season upset over their hosts.
Spurs, meanwhile, who suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Sunday, will be eager for a return to winning ways having now gone four games without a win after a promising start to the season.
Mauricio Pochettino will believe his players have what it takes as they seek to rediscover their winning formula and start as clear favourites at 63/100 to secure their passage into the next round.
Looking back, the sides last met in the 2004-05 FA Cup with Forest earning themselves a lucrative replay after a 1-1 draw at the Lane – a repeat of that scoreline after 90 minutes is currently 71/10.
Spurs won the return leg comfortably however, emerging 3-0 winners, and will believe they have more than enough to bring an end to Stuart Pearce’s unbeaten start to life at the City Ground.
