Preston North End v Nottingham Forest: What’s the story?

Forest will be keen to get back to playing football amid the controversial postponement of their game against Bournemouth on Friday night.

The Reds felt the Cherries took liberties with the Forest fan base and should have perhaps called the game off earlier than the three hours prior to kick-off.

Last time out, Forest secured a huge point in dramatic style against Stoke.

The Reds trailed to Lewis Baker’s penalty, awarded after Brice Samba had punched Phil Jagielka in the back of the head.

Ryan Yates levelled in stoppage time, heading home a Scott McKenna cross after James Garner’s free-kick had cracked the bar.

Preston lost for the first time in five on Saturday, falling to a shock 3-2 home defeat to Reading.

Ryan Lowe has completely changed the way in which Preston play; much like Cooper has at Forest.

His team have lost just twice in 12 matches and they will be hoping to get their own play-off bid back on track this evening.

Forest have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their game tonight and a big performance is likely to be needed to claim a positive result.
