Two play-off chasing teams meet in the West Midlands today as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Nottingham Forest.

Wolves have adjusted to life back in the Championship superbly, and sit ninth, just two points behind Watford in sixth place ahead of today's game.

Kenny Jackett's men are boosted by the arrival of Sunderland striker Danny Graham on loan, and he is thrown straight into the starting line-up today to lead the attack.

Forest won their last game 2-1 against Norwich, with Britt Assombalonga and Michail Antonio scoring late on to lead a stunning fight back.

Stuart Pearce's men have struggled lately, and that has seen them slip off the pace in the promotion race, but a win today could put them right back in the play-off mix.

Oddly, Pearce has left loan signing Thomas Ince on the bench, whilst striker Dexter Blackstock is also among the substitutes after rejecting a loan move to Sheffield United this week.
