Forest are unbeaten in four games. Forest head into the game following a frustrating 1-1 draw with Derby. They looked almost certain to clinch three points before the Rams equalized through Martyn Waghorn in the 96th minute.

Injuries: Sammy Ameobi, Tiago Silva and Adama Diakhaby all made appearances against Derby from the bench and will be hoping to start the game.

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Samba; Cash, Figueiredo, Worrall, Ribeiro; Yates, Watson, Sow; Lolley, Grabban, Silva

Nottingham Forest Championship form: DLDWWD


The Cottagers enter the game on the run of back-to-back victories. They recovered well after losing their first two games following the re-start of the league-against Brentford and Leeds United.

Fulham manager Scott Parker will be hoping for a strong run of results in order to potentially finish in the automatic promotion places.

Injuries: Fulham will have to continue without top-scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic who is serving the final game of his three game suspension. After scoring the winner against Birmingham during the weekend, Josh Onomah could be handed a start.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Christie, Hector, Ream, Bryan; Onomah, Reed, Cairney; Knockaert, Decordova-Reid, Cavaleiro

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Fulham

Both sides could opt to play safe in order to avoid defeat which will harm their chances of promotion. A draw could well be the result.
