Nottingham Forest get set to open their 2017-18 Sky Bet Championship season when Millwall visit The City Ground on Friday night.

Mark Warburton's men went through pre-season unbeaten and are in good shape heading into the curtain raiser against Neil Harris's Lions.

Millwall returned to the second tier after winning the League One play-offs last season and they will be hoping for a positive start to life back in the Championship.

See what manager Mark Warburton and forward Zach Clough had to say.
