Tricky Trees look to continue 2020 growth: Miller picks Nottingham Forest vs Millwall in the EFL Championship

Even though the current generation may not know, there are not many teams in England with a bigger history than Nottingham Forest.

The Tricky Trees were a First Division power at the end of the 1970s, and translated that into European supremacy. Nottingham Forest won two UEFA European Cups (1979 and 1980) and a UEFA Super Cup (1979). Those two European Cups (the predecessor to the current UEFA Champions League) are more than Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester City have won combined (one, Chelsea, 2012). In English football, only Liverpool (six) and Manchester United (three) have won more European Cups.

But Forest has been in the EFL Championship for over two decades now, but the club now has a good chance to make it back into the Premier League, if it can finish the season strongly.

Friday, Forest will host a Millwall team that is not great on the road. The teams are 2-2-2 in their last six matches against each other, but Millwall is unbeaten in four (2-0-2).

Today, though, with a chance for Forest to move into third place in the table, look for the Tricky Trees to get a result.
