6 November 2020

Check out all you need to know ahead of Nottingham Forest's clash against Wycombe Wanderers in the match preview, in association with Football Index.

Nottingham Forest will be aiming to make it back-to-back home wins as they welcome Wycombe Wanderers to The City Ground on Saturday (kick-off 3pm). 

Lyle Taylor's late penalty secured the victory over Coventry with the final kick of the game on Wednesday night and Chris Hughton's side will hope to build on that with another positive result.

From the opposition

It remains to be seen whether manager Gareth Ainsworth will return to the dugout on Saturday having undergone back surgery. The long-serving Chairboys boys missed their last games, both heralding landmark first home and away wins in the Championship.

Assistant manager Richard Dobson has been in charge for those two matches as he believes Wycombe are starting to prove themselves at this level.

Speaking after the win at Birmingham on Wednesday night, he said: "We want to stay in this division, we're not here to make up the numbers. I don't want anybody to think that Wycombe Wanderers are the whipping boys of this division.

"We're starting to prove that we can play at this level. We've been highly competitive for the last five or six games.

"We're unfortunate not to have a few more points on the board. We want to climb up this league, we want to make a fist of it and we're certainly heading in the right direction."
