Taylor starts: The predicted Nottingham Forest XI to face Fulham on Sunday

Published

Nottingham Forest will be looking to extend their winning run to five games this weekend as they host Fulham at the City Ground.

The Reds have enjoyed an excellent start to life under head coach Steve Cooper, picking up 13 points from a possible 15 under the Welshman so far.

In midweek, two goals from Lyle Taylor in stoppage time saw Forest make it four wins on the spin with a 2-1 victory over Bristol City away from home.

On Sunday, they return to the City Ground hoping to make it five wins on the bounce as promotion candidates Fulham make the trip to the East Midlands.

It will be the toughest test so far for Forest, with Fulham coming into this one on the back of two comfortable home wins and occupying second spot in the Championship.

Quiz: Did these 25 Nottingham Forest transfers actually happen?

1) Have Nottingham Forest ever signed Glenn Murray from Brighton?

But Forest are the in-form team at the moment, and will be coming into this one also brimming with confidence in front of a packed-out City Ground.

It is likely that Cooper will name an unchanged team, too, having made only one change in midweek. James Garner replaced Jack Colback in the middle of the park.

The defence will remain in the same, with Brice Samba starting in goal and Joe Worrall, Tobias Figueiredo and Scott McKenna playing in front of him.

Djed Spence and Max Lowe will occupy the wing-back spots, whilst Garner and Ryan Yates will sit alongside each other in midfield.

Going forward, Brennan Johnson and Philip Zinckernagel should keep their places in the side, but the main question is whether Taylor will start.

Having scored twice in midweek, it would be harsh to leave the striker on the bench given his excellent cameo at Ashton Gate.
