Nottingham Forest host Norwich City tomorrow night in the Championship with both sides needing points for very different reasons.

In the reverse fixture back in December, the Reds were beaten 2-1 at Carrow Road, despite a valiant effort.

Jacob Sorensen opened the scoring for the hosts before Anthony Knockaert equalised for Forest in the second half.

Emi Buendia struck 13 minutes from time via a wicked deflection, however, to give Norwich all three points.

Form

Forest have lost just four of their last 18 matches in the Championship.

Chris Hughton’s men are, however, without a win in four games now.

Forest need a few more big performances if they are to truly stave off the threat of relegation and beating Norwich would be a massive result.

That task won’t be easy, however.

 

Daniel Farke’s team arrive on Trentside on the cusp of a club record for the number of successive wins.

If Norwich beat Forest tomorrow night it will be nine straight wins in the league and that would break a long-standing record.

Supporters should be aware that this game does get underway at the slightly earlier time of 7pm.
