Nottingham Forest will be looking to make it back-to-back wins this week, after an impressive win over Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.
The Reds went into their game against the Lancashire-based side without a point to their name in this year’s league campaign, but showed much-needed fight in their first match under Chris Hughton’s management.
Joe Lolley scored the only goal of the match late on with a deflected strike, as Forest left Ewood Park with three important points to their name.
Forest are now sat 20th in the Championship table, and will head into their next match full of confidence at the City Ground.
They take on a Rotherham United side that fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Norwich City at the New York Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Millers led early on in that match through Freddie Ladapo, but the forward squandered a golden opportunity from the penalty spot to double their lead.
The Canaries equalised shortly after, before Angus MacDonald was shown his marching orders. Norwich’s pressure told as well as Jordan Hugill fired home the winner.
Sky Sports’ EFL pundit David Prutton predicted that Nottingham Forest would run out narrow 1-0 winners over the Millers at the City Ground.

I think Forest will win this one.
They looked like a completely different team for all the right reasons at the weekend, as they kept an attack-minded Blackburn Rovers side relatively quiet.
If they can keep their discipline in defence, and let the likes of Anthony Knockaert and Joe Lolley roam in attacking areas, then I can’t see Chris Hughton’s side not picking up three points here.
It’s a game they’ll be expected to win though, so it’s important they don’t underestimate the threat posed by Paul Warne’s side.
