Nottingham Forest are back at The City Ground as they face fellow play-off hopefuls Fulham in a key clash at the top of the Championship table (kick-off 5pm).

The Reds have made an unbeaten start to the restart and will look to bounce back after conceding late against Derby on the weekend and continue their push to cement a top-six spot.

From the opposition

Fulham manager Scott Parker is looking for his side to continue their winning run as they keep fighting for promotion, after they secured back-to-back wins ahead of their trip to The City Ground.


He said: “Our main focus is to win games and we’ve got tough ones coming up.

“I think whether you’re playing top, mid table or bottom, every game will be huge. These are ones we need to prepare for and try and get on a good run. Back-to-back wins are huge.

"After three months without being around my players, I knew the ones coming back in the best physical nick would perform. This week was our 20th session contact wise.

"We’ve done all we can. It’s been a quick turnaround, but I’m pleased. We lost 2-0 and 3-0 against Brentford and Leeds and we didn’t deserve that.

“We’ve deserved these two wins and we need to keep going.”
