Match preview: Forest vs Millwall

3 October 2018

Nottingham Forest are back at home tonight as Millwall are the visitors to The City Ground (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Reds will be looking to continue their fine home form when The Lions visit, with Aitor Karanka's side having won their last four outings on Trentside.

With an unbeaten run stretching to five games as well, Forest will be hoping for more points on the board against Neil Harris's Millwall.

Team news

Hillal Soudani remains sidelined for The Reds, while Diogo Goncalves is also suspended. Other than that, Aitor Karanka has plenty of options to choose from following the 2-2 draw at Blackburn on the weekend.

Ben Osborn could be in line for his 200th appearance for The Reds should he feature in the game.

From the Forest camp

The Millwall view

Millwall boss Neil Harris is well aware of the attacking talent available to Nottingham Forest ahead of their trip to The City Ground.

He said: "We talk about certain of their players because of the money they've spent on them. They have an array of attacking ability, whether that's foreign imports or from this country.

"We know very well Lewis Grabban's quality, we've spoken about him in the past being a very good player at this level and a predator. We have to make sure that we deal with him very well.

"They've got a lot of attacking ability, so we need to make sure that we're at our very best in our penalty area. That was our downfall at the weekend."

One to watch - Lee Gregory

This season's top scorer, Lee Gregory offers pace and an eye for goal to the Millwall front line.

Playing as a foil for talismanic forward Steve Morison, Gregory is a handful for any defence and scored in Saturday's 3-2 defeat against Sheffield United.
