Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton has named his team to face Luton Town at Kenilworth Road this evening.

The incumbent has made two changes from the side who drew 1-1 with Derby County on Friday night.

Jack Colback has replaced Harry Arter who isn’t in the 18, whilst Anthony Knockaert starts for the first time.

It would seem Hughton has opted to revert back to a 4-2-3-1 formation following a flat first half playing 4-4-2 against the Rams.

Forest are looking for only their second win of the 2020/21 campaign against a Luton side with four wins from their opening seven games.

The Hatters won 1-0 at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday but suffered back-to-back defeats to Stoke and Millwall prior to their Hillsborough trip.

Forest earned a share of the spoils with the Rams having drawn with Rotherham and defeated Blackburn prior.

Forest boss Hughton will hope his team start better this evening. Against the Rams they failed to get going and it very nearly cost them.

Lewis Grabban has missed the trip to Kenilworth Road and that hands Lyle Taylor another chance to impress from the off.

Following Hughton’s selection, here is a selection of Tweets from Forest supporters ahead of this evening’s contest.
