Paul Merson has told Sportskeeda that Nottingham Forest could find themselves in trouble if they don’t sort out their away form.

The Reds are heading to Tottenham this weekend and they’ve managed to win just once away from home during 2022/23.

Forest have scored just three goals away from the City Ground all season and they’re desperately trying to improve on that.

It won’t be easy at Tottenham this weekend. Antonio Conte’s team are now out of the Champions League and they will want to bounce back on Saturday.

Forest are still embroiled in a relegation battle. Drawing with Everton on Sunday wasn’t ideal and the Reds could rue that result.

Merson believes that the Reds will be in serious bother if they can’t sort their away form out.

He told Sportskeeda: “Nottingham Forest are awful away from home. Unless they sort out their away form, they are in huge trouble. They need to start getting results on the road.”

Merson went on to predict a 3-0 win for the home side on Saturday and Forest will hope to prove him wrong in North London.

There were comments from Merson that were factually incorrect in his latest predictions piece.

He claimed that Forest only had three points away all season but three is the number of goals the Reds have managed.

Still, the six points that Forest have claimed away aren’t good enough. As a result, they will hope to improve this weekend.

Steve Cooper is under no illusions as to how Forest must improve away. Their form has been shocking and it can’t carry on.

The Reds still have some tough fixtures to come on their travels and they will hope for a positive result at Tottenham this weekend.
