Nottingham Forest’s predicted starting XI for game against Preston North End

Championship Picks

Nottingham Forest will be looking to continue their fine form as they host Preston North End at the City Ground this afternoon.

Just one point separates the two sides after five matches in the Championship, but the Reds will be buoyed by the fact that they have only lost one game this season and that came on the opening day to West Brom.

In midweek, Forest retained the Brian Clough Trophy whilst also earning a place in the Carabao Cup third round, where they will face Arsenal.

They defeated arch-rivals Derby 3-0 as Sabri Lamouchi made eight changes to his side.

The performance would have given him plenty to think about going into this fixture.

Here’s how we predict they will line up this afternoon:

Lewis Grabban should return to lead the line, especially if the Reds boss agrees with his fanbase over Rafa Mir.

Albert Adomah has surely justified why he should be handed a start after two goals and two assists in just three starts, per Transfermarkt.

Derby fans got too cocky, too early in their Carabao Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest. Check out the video below to see for yourself…

There was a return for Joao Carvalho on Tuesday night, and he would be a welcome option in midfield, as Football FanCast have previously covered here.

Defensively, there should be a change at right-back if Tuesday was a sign of anything as Matty Cash was handed the armband – maybe he will be granted another go at the right-back spot ahead of Carl Jenkinson.

Whilst many of those that featured in their last Championship outing, an impressive win over Fulham at Craven Cottage should continue to feature, including Jack Robinson, Joe Worrall, Michael Dawson, Brice Samba and Alfa Semedo.
