Nottingham Forest travel to Blackburn Rovers tomorrow evening knowing that a win could see them return to the top of the Championship. 

The Reds are unbeaten in the league since the opening day of the season and have won their last three games on the road.

Blackburn have made a steady start to the season; although they did suffer a defeat against Luton Town at Ewood Park at the weekend.

Forest beat struggling Stoke City 3-2 on Friday night so it would be a surprise to see too many changes tomorrow evening.

Here at Seat Pitch, we looked at the predicted eleven that Sabri Lamouchi will task with making it nine games unbeaten.

Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

Goalkeeper and back four

Brice Samba produced another impressive performance against Stoke and he should retain his place between the posts tomorrow evening.

Matty Cash produced one of his best displays at right-back against Stoke. With Carl Jenkinson still out injured, he’s almost guaranteed to start again.

Michael Dawson was taken off with a calf injury in the first half against the Potters. Chema Rodríguez replaced him, and looks most likely to replace him in tomorrow night’s starting line-up alongside Joe Worrall.

Lamouchi may be tempted to draft Yuri Ribeiro back into his line-up in place of Jack Robinson to keep things fresh.

Middle of the park

Ben Watson is likely to start again here after another good performance against Stoke. Lamouchi may be concerned about pushing the 34-year-old midfielder too hard, but there are only two games left before the international break.

Alongside Watson, Samba Sow has been a revelation and will be required again here.

João Carvalho wasn’t at his best against the Potters, but may be needed to unlock Blackburn’s defence in this one. He needs as many games as possible to get back to his best.

In attack

Joe Lolley will have been delighted to get back on the scoresheet against Stoke. He’ll be looking to add to his tally against Rovers.

On the other side, Sammy Ameobi produced arguably his best performance in a Forest shirt against the Potters. It would be harsh if he didn’t feature here, but Albert Adomah did impress when he came on.

Lewis Grabban is almost guaranteed to start again here. Rafa Mir could be back in the matchday squad but is highly unlikely to start.
