Nottingham Forest face a difficult test as they take on Brentford this lunchtime.
The Reds are on a poor run of form having failed to win in any of their last five matches in the Championship, while the Bees are challenging for automatic promotion.
But fresh from a 2-0 defeat to Norwich City midweek, Chris Hughton will be hoping for a big reaction against Thomas Frank’s side.
With that in mind here’s the side that Forest will field.

Chris Hughton has made four changes to his team for the clash with Brentford.
The most notable change is the return of Bryce Samba in goal.
He replaces Jordan Smith who falls out of the side and has to settle for a place in the bench against the Bees.
Gaetan Bong, Alex Mighten and Filip Krovinovic also come into the Nottingham Forest starting XI as Hughton looks to freshen up his side for the clash with the promotion-chasers.
They replace Tyler Blackett, Ryan Yates and Luke Freeman in the starting line-up, with Yates and Freeman dropping to the bench.
There’s also a place on the bench for Anthony Knockaert who returns to the first team fold.
Quiz: Did each of these 18 ex-Nottingham Forest players ever score a goal at the City Ground?
As you’d expect that team has attracted plenty of attention on social media with the general consensus being delight at seeing such an attack-minded team.
Here’s what some supporters have had to say.
Now that’s a good team that should be picked every week
