- Nottingham Forest have had plenty of time to mull over their gut-wrenching defeat to Bournemouth last time out – a match they were leading 2-0 at the break.
- Orel Mangala has suffered a minor setback in his recovery and could well miss out again while Serge Aurier – one of a raft of new signings made by the club – is still awaiting visa approval.
- Defeat to Spurs last time out has left Fulham in tenth place in the Premier League table but they would be much further down if it wasn’t for talismanic striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has found the net in five of the Cottagers’ six league games so far.
- Manor Solomon and Harry Wilson remain long-term absentees and Antonee Robinson has emerged as a doubt to feature on account of an ankle issue, while recent signing Layvin Kurzawa could get his first start for the club at left-back.

It is three defeats on the bounce now for Forest, but their most recent loss to fellow promoted side Bournemouth will have been a particularly bitter pill to swallow given that they were comfortably leading at half-time. They now face Fulham, the other side who came up from the Championship, and manager Steve Cooper knows that these are the sort of games his side need to win. Their new signings have a had a little longer to gel now and they can be expected to come out with purpose here, but with an in-form Mitrovic on the other side of the pitch, they are equally liable to concede., Therefore, both teams to score is the tip.
TIP: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
