“Nottingham Forest just don't seem to have enough goals in their side, when Lewis Grabban isn't firing you wonder where they're going to come from, and they should have put Middlesbrough away in midweek." -David Prutton
Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1):
Cash Dawson Worrall Robinson
Lolley Tiago Silva Ameobi
Wednesday's Sam Hutchinson serves the first match of a two-game ban, and Moses Odubajo is also suspended.
Fernando Forestieri will need to prove his fitness after an ankle injury, while Cameron Dawson could again be in goal as cover for Keiren Westwood.
"We are going to fight as hard as we can for the three points.When our intensity levels and attitude is at its best, we are capable of winning and beating any team in this league. That is what we have tried to drill into the players and slowly but surely I think they have taken that more on board."
Predicted line-up (4-4-2):
Palmer Iorfa Lees Fox
Harris Lee Luongo Bannan Murphy
