Nottingham Forest head to Watford tomorrow with both teams needing points for different reasons.

The Hornets are chasing automatic promotion, whilst Forest are still keen to pull further clear of the relegation zone.

In reverse fixture back in December, the teams played out a goalless draw at the City Ground, with Forest creating the best chances to win.

The game marked the return to action of Joe Worrall and he has played in every game since then.


Forest go into the game on the back of a defeat to Luton Town.

Ryan Tunnicliffe scored the only goal of the game at the City Ground on Tuesday to hand Forest a setback.

The Reds have lost just three times in 16 matches but now face a tough run of fixtures against the top sides in the division.

In contrast, Watford are absolutely flying in the Championship.


Xisco Munoz’s men have won six of their last seven matches and are eyeing a top-two spot come the end of the season.

In midweek they defeated bottom club Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 at Vicarage Road.


To go against tradition this game kicks off at the earlier time of 12:30pm.

TV Coverage

The game has been selected for live coverage by Sky Sports and will be shown on both Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.

The coverage gets underway at 12pm.
