Here is how Nottingham Forest and Fulham will line up for this evening's Championship match at the City Ground...

Nottingham Forest starting XI: Darlow; Hunt, Lichaj, Mancienne, Fox, Tesche, Osborn, Lansbury; Burke, Antonio, Assombalonga

Subs: De Vries, Wilson, Lascelles, McLaughlin, Paterson, Vaughan, Veldwijk

Fulham starting XI: Kiraly; Hutchinson, Burn, Amorebieta, Bodurov; Hoogland, Parker, Fotheringham, Stafylidis; McCormack, Rodallega

Nottingham Forest will look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season when they take on beleaguered Fulham this evening.

Stuart Pearce's side have made an exceptional start to the season with four wins and two draws from their opening six games, but Sunday's draw with East Midlands rivals Derby will leave a bitter taste in the mouth after Ryan Shotton bagged a late equaliser for the Rams.

Striker Britt Assombalonga continues to impress with five goals in six games since his £5.5m move from Peterborough, and he once again starts up front on his own with Chris Burke and Michail Antonio flanking him. Meanwhile, an injury to midfielder Chris Cohen means that German Robert Tesche comes into the side whilst Ben Osborn replaces Andy Reid.

Meanwhile, Fulham boss Felix Magath remains under pressure after his Fulham side took one point from the first six games and sit rooted the bottom of the Championship table with a shambolic -10 goal difference. The German is reportedly on the verge of the sack should they lose tonight's fixture, and Forest could put him out of his misery tonight.

Striker Matt Smith misses out having been sent off against Reading at weekend, with Colombian Hugo Rodallega coming in alongside Ross McCormack in attack.
