Chris Hughton faces these Nottingham Forest dilemmas ahead of today’s 12:30pm kick-off v Bournemouth



Nottingham Forest will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce this afternoon, as they prepare to take on AFC Bournemouth at the City Ground.

The Reds picked up two vital away wins over Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers last weekend, putting a bit of daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.

Chris Hughton will now be urging his side to produce those type of performances against those sides fighting for promotion, with Bournemouth travelling to the East Midlands this afternoon.

Did these 15 former Nottingham Forest players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?

Britt Assombalonga?

Forest have definitely turned a corner under Hughton, and after having a January transfer window to address his squad, Hughton has been able to have an imprint.

What dilemmas does he face this afternoon? Let’s have a look…

Grabban or Murray?

Lewis Grabban is likely to be back in the squad having missed Saturday’s win at Wycombe, with the striker back in training following a slight hamstring issue.

The question is, does Hughton’s captain walk straight back into the team? It is unlikely, considering Glenn Murray’s impact last weekend.

Murray marked his full debut with a brace against Wycombe, lobbing Ryan Allsop after seven minutes and stepping up to convert a penalty he won in the second half.

Will Hughton stick with his captain, or stick with the player who performed so well against the Chairboys last weekend?

Lolley in for Freeman?

Lolley made an instant impact against Wycombe last weekend, firing a volley narrowly wide before setting up Anthony Knockaert for the Reds’ third goal of the afternoon.

Chris Hughton will have been delighted to have seen this performance from Lolley, who has looked a shadow of the player he once was this season.

With the winger looking fitter and sharper, does he come in for Luke Freeman this afternoon?

Freeman has looked short of fitness since returning from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and could have to make do with a substitute cameo today.
