Nottingham Forest face Fulham at the City Ground tomorrow with both sides looking to try and find a consistent run of form.
For the hosts, defeat at Villa Park was their fourth in five league games, meanwhile, pre-season promotion hopefuls Fulham have secured just two wins all season.
Forest can be boosted by their second half showing against Villa, where they carved out several good chances, but still ultimately lost.
It’s been a case of needing to improve in both boxes for Mark Warburton’s men, with cheap goals and slack finishing not giving the results their stylish football deserves.
However, they will more than meet their match on that front when they play Slavisa Jokanovic’s Fulham.
In their last outing, they conceded a late equaliser having taken the lead on the 86th minute to draw against Middlesbrough.
Yet, the Cottagers have firmly established themselves as one of the best passing sides in the division over the past two seasons and will look to control the game here.
Although, with their similar footballing philosophies it will be intriguing to see who manages to have more of the ball and create chances in a game that should be pleasing on the eye.
Defeat at Burton was the first on the road this season for the Londoners, who boasted a fantastic away record last season too.
With that in mind, we think Fulham will just about come through tomorrow.
Given Forest are going to try and play Fulham at their own game, it could be a case that the visitors just have that extra bit of class that will see them through.
But, you can be sure to expect goals and a tight encounter, in a game both could do with winning.
