New Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton is without a win so far and his side are getting desperate. No win in 5 has left them just 2 points above the relegation zone and very much looking over their shoulders at the relegation places.
The games don’t get any easier for the East-Midlands side as they entertain Huddersfield at the weekend. David Wagner’s men were victorious yet again in midweek after another energetic display earned them a thumping 3-0 win over Norwich City at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Forest lost 1-0 at Wolves last time but it was a close call – indeed they thought they’d scored through Britt Assombalonga moments before the crucial winner and will look to do to Huddersfield what they did to Brighton a month ago. If they are to do it, they’ll need this 4-1-4-1 line-up to be at its best:
The youth team recruit, still just 22, will need to ignore any nerves on what is only his 10th appearance in the league in goal.
A defensive shake-up may be needed and so the USA international may come back in at right-back.
Despite being fairly accurately described as a journeyman defender, Mills has held his place down in the Forest side and should play again.
Played at right-back last time, but with Danny Fox suspended after his red card in midweek the former Chelsea star may move into his more natural position.
Another run-out at left-back is on the cards for the former Arsenal man. Just the 11 appearances this season so far.
With tons of experience under his belt, he can line-up again and protect a vulnerable defensive back line.
It’s difficult to know which way Warburton will go in midfield, but the youngster may get another chance on the right.
Improving nicely and may well outgrow this Forest side eventually.
The experienced former Yeovil Town man is captaining the side these days and will line up once again to marshal his troops.
Replaced Ben Osborn during the game at Wolves and could be a more natural option in this position.
So nearly scored at Molineux in midweek and will be desperate to make up for that. 10 league goals in 26 games for a struggling side is not a bad record at all and so he should start once more.
