Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton has named his team to face Cardiff City in the Welsh capital this afternoon.

Forest will be looking to get back to winning games after six games without claiming all three points in the Championship.

The big talking point is at the back where Joe Worrall recovers from a cracked rib and starts alongside Scott McKenna.

Elsewhere, Tyler Blackett plays at left-back, Ryan Yates partners James Garner in midfield and Cafu moves into the No.10 spot.

Both Filip Krovinovic and Anthony Knockaert begin the game on the bench.


The Reds will hope to take some confidence from their performance in the 1-1 draw at Brentford last time out.

Filip Krovinovic scored his first goal for the club that day and Forest will know they must start collecting wins to avoid an uncomfortable end to the campaign.

Cardiff have been in good form themselves and they need three points in order to maintain their play-off push.

Mick McCarthy has got his team playing some really good stuff and Forest will be in for a tough examination today.

Following the announcement of today’s team, supporters have been reacting on Twitter and here is what they had to say.
