Nottingham Forest face West Brom tonight looking to get back to winning ways after two draws in succession.
Steve Cooper’s team were held to a 0-0 draw at the City Ground on Tuesday night by Luton. Jack Colback was sent off in the 61st minute for the Reds.
Forest have drawn four of their last five and will be desperate to put in a winning performance at The Hawthorns.
Ahead of tonight’s game, we looked at the team that could face West Brom tonight.
Predicted Nottingham Forest team to face West Brom:
The Forest rearguard
Brice Samba was out of this world on Tuesday night and will certainly play at West Brom.
There could be a change in shape, with Cooper reverting to the 3-4-3 system that has served him well.
Tobias Figueiredo will come in and play in between Joe Worrall and Scott McKenna.
Pulling the Forest strings
James Garner was impressive the other night and perhaps he will earn the chance to start once again.
Ryan Yates returns from suspension and will almost certainly start, with Colback now suspended.
Braian Ojeda looks likely to drop to the bench.
At wing-back, there is a dilemma on the left. Max Lowe is injured and with Colback suspended it seems like Gaetan Bong is the only option.
Djed Spence will start on the right.
Plotting the Forest win
Lewis Grabban was an unused substitute on Tuesday and he should start against West Brom.
Philip Zinckernagel looked pretty lively and he also looks set to keep his place.
So too will Brennan Johnson. He was out of sorts on Tuesday but he does seem to thrive on the 3-4-3 setup.
Here is how the Forest team could look:
