Nottingham Forest face a daunting Championship trip to Bournemouth this evening with Jason Tindall’s men in fine league form.

If results go the way of the Cherries tonight they could top the Championship as they chase an instant Premier League return.

Forest are still striving for consistency and must try and return to winning ways after losing 2-0 at Barnsley on Saturday.

Ahead of tonight’s game, we look at a potential line-up the Reds could utilise against Bournemouth this evening.

In goal and back four

Brice Samba will surely start between the posts but elsewhere there could be a change.

Yuri Ribeiro was skinned badly for Barnsley’s second goal on Saturday and might be handed a rest here.

Nicholas Ioannou might earn a chance to impress after returning to the bench on Saturday following a three-match ban.

At centre-back, Scott McKenna should continue alongside Tobias Figueiredo and Cyrus Christie should start at right-back.



Plenty of supporters are suggesting that Jack Colback could drop out but that doesn’t seem to make much sense.

He has captained the side on several occasions this season and it seems likely he will start once again.

Alongside him though, Harry Arter could earn a recall against his former club.

The midfielder didn’t get on the pitch at the weekend but could replace Ryan Yates tonight.

In attack

There could be one change in attack for the Reds as they look to possibly reshuffle the pack.

Lyle Taylor should spearhead the attack but Miguel Angel Guerrero could be dropped to the bench.

Sammy Ameobi has been forced to wait patiently for a chance but could come into the attack this evening.

Anthony Knockaert will probably start on the right-hand side, with Joe Lolley given more of a license to roam through the middle.

Here is how the Forest team might look tonight.
