Premier League strugglers Nottingham Forest take on a midtable Brentford at the City Ground on Saturday, with both clubs hoping to return to winning ways.
Steve Cooper’s Forest side were demolished 5-0 by table toppers Arsenal last time out, having secured a famous win over Liverpool only a week earlier.
Meanwhile, Brentford recovered from a thumping 4-0 defeat against a rejuvenated Aston Villa side by drawing 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers last week.
