Match preview: Wigan vs Forest in association with Football Index

19 October 2019

Check out the match preview as Nottingham Forest return to Sky Bet Championship action when they travel to Wigan Athletic on Sunday, in association with Football Index.

Football is back as The Reds look to continue their fine form when they visit the DW Stadium for tomorrow's televised clash.

Forest are on a 10-game unbeaten run in the league, a string of games which saw them climb to second in the division prior to the international break.

Wigan have had a mixed campaign so far but will be up for the fight come 2pm on Sunday.

Team news

Ryan Yates is back in training and available for selection having overcome his knee injury. His return is timely, with Alfa Semedo and Samba Sow both missing through back and hamstring injuries respectively.

Michael Dawson remains sidelined too but is hopeful of a return next week.
