Nottingham Forest travel to Bournemouth tomorrow night look to kick start their Championship season.

The Reds were beaten 2-0 by Barnsley at the weekend and currently languish towards the foot of the league table.

Forest must start climbing the league quickly and face a daunting run of fixtures, starting with a side who were in the Premier League last season.

Ahead of tomorrow night’s game, we looked at three changes that Hughton must make to his side on Tuesday night.


Ioannou for Ribeiro

Forest’s left-back has played three games on the trot now but was skinned badly for Barnsley’s second goal at the weekend.

With the Reds facing another grueling schedule of games, it seems likely that some changes will indeed be made tomorrow night.

Ribeiro was clearly blowing towards the end of Saturday and it’s might be an idea just to give him a full week to recharge the batteries once again.

Ioannou hasn’t played since being sent off against Luton Town but could earn recall against Bournemouth.

Arter for Yates

The midfielder has been out of contention since recovering from an early season injury problem.

He was on the bench at the weekend and will be chomping at the bit to play against his former club.

Yates was found wanting defensively for Barnsley’s first goal at the weekend, failing to stop a pretty tame cross into the box.

The 23-year-old is still learning his trade and Arter’s driving force alongside the combative Jack Colback could be key on Tuesday night.

Guerrero for Ameobi

The Spanish attacking outlet has looked pretty sharp in the last two games, although he could do with a goal to boost his confidence.

Ameobi has been forced to wait patiently for his chances this season and is yet to scale the heights of last season.

Throwing Ameobi out wide will perhaps allow Joe Lolley or Anthony Knockaert to roam more centrally in a shake up of the attack.

Forest have nothing to lose heading to the Vitality Stadium and must take the game to Bournemouth.

The tricky performer could give Forest the impetus to do just that.
