The Championship’s Friday evening fray between big-guns Brighton and Hove Albion and Nottingham Forest is our featured bet of the day for August 12th, and with good reason.

So, get in on the awesome action ahead, beginning with this brilliant special match bet of 4/1 (max stake £20) for Brighton to vanquish Forest with both sides scoring in the scuffle.

Read on to find out all of the compelling reasons to back this pre-weekend wager, then sit back and enjoy this superb slice of Championship football…

Seagulls can prey on Forest backline bloopers

There’s certainly a recent precedent for both Brighton and Forest finding the target in their tussles with each other, as the two teams have each been on target in five of their previous seven meetings.

Coastal club the Seagulls ran out victorious in both of their Championship battles against Nottingham last term, which is why they get the nod to edge this early encounter.

While, the seaside boys also finished 34 points ahead of their upcoming Midlands opponents in the English second division season just gone.

Chris Hughton’s East Sussex side have notched four times in their two outings across all competitions so far, and are undefeated. While, Forest have also been scoring for fun with six strikes from their pair of Championship and EFL Cup clashes, though they crucially also conceded four along the way.

This defensive frailty should allow Brighton to swoop and, as the Seagulls enjoyed success with both teams scoring in their very last wrangle with Forest, this 4/1 (max stake £20) match special for a repeat looks terrifically tasty!
