Latest Nottingham Forest team news pre-Boro, what will the Reds’ XI look like tonight?



Nottingham Forest will be hoping record back-to-back wins this evening, as they prepare to take on Middlesbrough at the City Ground.

The Reds have turned a corner of late and are currently embarking on an unbeaten run of seven games, winning their last three matches in all competitions.

Tonight, there is another opportunity to make it four wins on the bounce and stretch their unbeaten run to eight games, as they prepare to host Middlesbrough.

It promises to be a tough test for Forest, with Boro – sat eighth in the league table – bound to be hurting after winning only one of their last three games.

Here, we take a look at the latest Nottingham Forest team news ahead of tonight’s clash, and how we expect Chris Hughton’s side to line up…

Forest have no fresh injury concerns heading into tonight’s clash, and Chris Hughton could well name an unchanged side.

Midfield duo Harry Arter and Jack Colback remain unavailable through injury, but the likes of Luke Freeman and Fouad Bachirou are back in full training.¬†Tonight’s clash is likely to come too soon for those two, though.

The line-up, then, will see Brice Samba start in goal, and Cyrus Christie, Joe Worrall, Scott McKenna and Yuri Ribeiro make up the defence. Forest produced a solid display at the weekend, and were unlucky to concede a late goal with Samba feeling as if he had been fouled.

In midfield, it is likely that Ryan Yates and Samba Sow will hold the midfield with Cafu sitting just ahead of them.

We could see changes in the final third, though, and Anthony Knockaert could well return to the side ahead of Alex Mighten. Sammy Ameobi is likely to keep his place, after scoring a brace at the weekend.

Lewis Grabban is likely to keep his place in the team ahead of Lyle Taylor, too.
