Nottingham Forest visit The Hawthorns for the first time since 2010 when they make the trip across the Midlands tonight to face West Brom (kick-off 8pm).

The Reds will be looking to make it back-to-back wins following Saturday's victory against Brentford at The City Ground and build some momentum as they look to close the gap on the top six.

West Brom have been in the play-off chasing pack all season and come into tonight's game on the back of a 1-0 win at Stoke on the weekend. 

Team news

Yohan Benalouane and Jack Colback are both available for selection having completed their respective suspensions.

Martin O'Neill has plenty of options to pick from, with Ryan Yates impressing in midfield on his first league start for The Reds and Molla Wague making a telling contribution from the bench on his debut on Saturday.

From the Forest camp

The opposition view

West Brom manager Darren Moore is expecting a tough test when Nottingham Forest visit on Tuesday night.

He said: "We're playing another good team in this division who are in the top half of the table. The new management team has gone in there and they have an array of talented individual players, and what Martin is doing is bringing them together as a group.

"It will be another good game on Tuesday night at The Hawthorns. We're playing against real stern opposition.

"It's always good to play in front of your home fans. Hopefully they will be in good voice as they have been. I echo the same messages to the supporters; come and be heard. Be in full voice. There's no place like The Hawthorns when it's at full volume.

"We want to win all of our games. Every match we compete in we want to win. It's a culture here at West Brom that we want to win every game.

"I want my players fully at it for every single game and be proud to be pulling on the West Brom jersey. We've seen that this season, we've seen some whole-hearted performances and we expect no different on Tuesday night."

One to watch - Dwight Gayle

A prolific scorer at Championship level, Dwight Gayle has been among the goals this season as he has scored 16 times, including the decisive strike in the win against Stoke on Saturday.

Match Reports

West Brom 2-2 Forest

12 February 2019

Ryan Yates struck his first goal for Nottingham Forest as The Reds were denied all three points against West Bromwich Albion by a controversial late penalty.

The academy graduate gave Forest a second-half lead but The Reds had to settle for a point in an entertaining match at The Hawthorns.

Jacob Murphy levelled for The Baggies early in the second half before the controversial late spot kick saw Jay Rodriguez level the tie under the lights in the West Midlands.

Martin O'Neill included both Jack Colback and Yohan Benalouane in his starting line up to face West Brom, after the pair returned from suspension and Yates retained his place in the starting 11 after his Man of Match performance against Brentford last weekend and got off to the perfect start.

It took just six minutes for the visitors to go ahead after a clever interchange between Colback and Grabban. The pair's neat one-two allowed Colback to simply square the ball to an onrushing Yates and his effort was turned into his own net by Baggies midfielder Stefan Johansen.

The opening quarter of an hour belonged to the visitors, threatening on the counter attack on numerous occasions but as the half wore on, The Baggies came back into the match and started to dominate possession.

The hosts produced their first real chance on 37 minutes when Murphy cut inside, beating both Ben Osborn and Jack Robinson only to see his attempted cross smothered by Costel Pantilimon in the six-yard box.

The Reds took their lead into the break but ten minutes into the second half, the home side managed to break through a resolute Forest defence. Forest failed to clear a cross into the box and the loose ball fell to Murphy who stabbed home beyond Pantilimon.

The hosts were now in charge and looking to add a second but Forest were remaining tight at the back and gradually regained their footing in the game.

On 65 minutes they reclaimed the lead through Yates who scored his first goal in Forest colours. A long throw by Robinson from the left was controlled and teed up by Grabban for the unmarked Yates who smashed home, in off the post past a helpless Sam Johnstone.

It was a frantic period in the second half with both sides attacking with real threat and purpose but it was Forest, however, who were looking the most likely to score, and they nearly did through leading goalscorer Grabban. Joe Lolley danced past a couple of challenges and put the striker through on goal, however, his left-footed effort was well saved by Johnstone in the West Brom goal.

As the match entered the final stages, the home side were throwing everything they had at the Forest goal but the visitors, as they have done throughout the match, were equal to the challenge and restricting the hosts to long-range efforts.

However, with just a minute left on the clock, the home side won a penalty after Dwight Gayle was adjudged to have been brought down under Alex Milosevic's challenge. Rodriguez stepped up and drew the scores level as he drilled the ball past Pantilimon.

Despite losing the lead for a second time, the visitors came back fighting in stoppage time but there wasn't to be a third for the men in red and the match ended all square.
