Forest's sophomore year back in the top flight is a chance to establish themselves once more as one of the country's biggest clubs, and they've given a decent account of themselves so far amidst a tough set of opening fixtures. Following narrow one-goal losses at Arsenal and Man Utd, they stunned Chelsea at Stamford Bridge 1-0.

Steve Cooper has a largely full squad to pick from for today's game. Nuno Tavares went off with a knock in Forest's respectable 2-0 loss at Man City last weekend, so he may have some rejigging to do in defence. But otherwise, he should be able to name his preferred XI a the City Ground.

After two enchanted Premier League seasons, it's been hard graft for The Bees so far this term. They haven't won a game in over a month and went down limply 3-1 at home to a troubled Everton last time out. Thomas Frank has an enormous pool of goodwill on his side in West London, but questions will start to be asked if they don't start picking up points soon.

Three points today should see them bounce back to the top half of the table (ahead of Man Utd) that they made their home last season. Bryan Mbeumo's four league goals so far — already a match for the total he bagged in 2022/23 — has at least helped dampen the effect of Ivan Toney's betting ban.

Nottm Forest vs Brentford teams:

Nottm Forest: Turner, Murillo, Niakhate, Boly, Aurier, Hudson-Odoi, Dominguez, Mangala, Sangare, Elanga, Awoniyi

Brentford: Flekken, Ajer, Pinnock, Collins, Hickey, Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen, Lewis-Potter, Wissa, Mbeumo
