Team News

Forest blew Birmingham City out of the water on Saturday to claim their first Championship win of the season.

On that basis, changes will probably be unlikely. The nature of the performance should dictate the same starting eleven.

Charlton will be forced into a change defensively. Adedeji Oshilaja is likely to replace Chris Solly.

Chuks Aneke is pushing hard for a start and may well replace Jonathan Leko in the attack.

Match Preview

Forest were sensational in disposing of Birmingham on Saturday. On another afternoon the Reds might have scored six or seven, such was their dominance.

It ensured a first league win of the season and Lamouchi will hope to earn his first win on the road as soon as possible.

With promotion hopefuls, Fulham on the agenda for Saturday, the game with Charlton will represent a tough, albeit winnable, test for the Reds.

The Addicks have been the surprise package so far during 2019/20, with Lee Bowyer’s men continuing their momentum from winning the League One play-offs last season.

Bowyer has lost Joe Aribo to Rangers in the summer but his team already look like being tricky to overcome.

Charlton have claimed two wins and a draw so far this season and Forest will need to be at their best to claim all three points on Wednesday night.

Predicted Line-ups

Forest: (4-3-3): Muric; Cash, Worrall, Dawson, Robinson; Watson, Semedo, Sow; Ameobi, Grabban, Lolley

Charlton: (4-3-1-2): Phillips; Oshilaja, Lockyer, Pearce, Purrington; Pratley, Cullen, Gallagher; Williams; Taylor, Aneke

One to watch

It was perhaps a surprise that nobody picked the prolific striker up during the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old has already netted three goals in three games this term and he scored 25 goals in all competitions last season.


The club does still have tickets available for tomorrow’s game.

Tickets for the trip to The Valley can be purchased via the club’s official website.

TV and Radio

The game is televised live on Sky Sports Football. It will be the third time in four games that Forest have had their league games covered live by the broadcaster.

As always full match commentary will also be live on BBC Radio Nottingham via frequency 103.8.
