Sow starts: How we expect Nottingham Forest to line-up v Bristol City tomorrow

Published

on

Nottingham Forest will be looking to further boost their play-off hopes tomorrow night, as they prepare to take on Bristol City at the City Ground.

The Reds moved up to fourth in the Championship table at the weekend, after defeating Huddersfield Town by three goals to one courtesy of goals from Lewis Grabban and Ryan Yates.

Sabri Lamouchi will be urging his side to pick up another win on Wednesday night, with Bristol City set to travel to the City Ground.

The Robins have slipped to 12th in the league table after losing their last two games, showing just how tight the race for the play-offs is turning out to be.

Forest have some tough games coming up, none more than so than against City, who will be desperate to get their play-off push back on track.

The Reds then face Derby County, Fulham, Preston North End and Swansea City, who are all in contention of a top-six finish this term.

Squad rotation is going to be vital for Lamouchi, then, and it is likely that the Frenchman will make changes to the side that started against Huddersfield as they prepare to take on Lee Johnson’s side.

Here, we take a look at the starting line-up we expect Lamouchi to field against Bristol City tomorrow night…

Lamouchi is likely to make changes to his team tomorrow night, but we don’t expect to see any in defence, with Brice Samba very likely to keep his place in-between the sticks.

Matty Cash, Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo and Yuri Ribeiro are all likely to start in defence, too, barring any potential late knocks in training.

Moving into midfield is where we may see a few changes, and there is a place in the middle of the park potentially up for grabs.

Brennan Johnson looked bright in the first-half against Huddersfield, but he was taken off at half-time and was replaced by Ryan Yates, who headed in Forest’s third goal of the afternoon.

Samba Sow is fit and available, and Lamouchi confirmed that it was his choice to leave him out of the side against the Terriers. He should be fully ready to start against the Robins tomorrow night.

Joao Carvalho also came on and made a positive impact against Huddersfield and he will be hopeful of replacing Tiago Silva in the line-up, which could be a possibility should Sow return to the side and offer defensive steel.

Across the front-line, it is likely that Joe Lolley, Sammy Ameobi and Lewis Grabban will keep their shirts, but don’t be surprised to see the likes of Alex Mighten and Nuno da Costa come on with plenty of time remaining tomorrow night.
