It’s been a season to forget for Sheffield Utd whose fate was sealed last weekend when they were thrashed 5-1 by Newcastle. The Blades have won just three games all season, have conceded a staggering 97 goals, but for now there is a chance to drag Forest into deep trouble and give the home fans a reason to feel optimistic about the next campaign. 

Forest are without a win in their last three games and are nervously looking over their shoulder as they are just one point clear of Luton Town and two ahead of a resurgent Burnley. The Tricky Trees were a touch unfortunate last weekend in the 2-0 defeat to Everton and manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be trying to fire up his players for this crunch clash. 

Line ups: 

Sheff Utd: Foderingham, Trusty, Ahmedhodzic, Robinson, Bogle, Hamer, Arblaster, Brooks, Osborn, Brereton, Archer. 

Subs: Brewster, Grbic, Norwood, Vinicius Souza, Ben Slimane, Larouci, McAtee, Holgate, Osula.

Nottm Forest: Sels, Montiel, Boly, Murillo, Aina, Yates, Danilo, Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi, Wood. 

Subs: Turner, Sangare, Kouyate, Awoniyi, Toffolo, Dominguez, Niakhate, Reyna, Origi.
