Confirmed: Brighton & Hove Albion v Nottingham Forest line-ups

This is how Brighton & Hove Albion and Nottingham Forest will line up for the Championship clash this afternoon…

Nottingham Forest will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship this afternoon when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion away from home.

Forest will head into the game at The Amex on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Millwall at the City Ground which saw them slip further down the league table.

The Nottingham-based club are currently 12th in the league table with 34 points from 28 matches, just seven points above the relegation zone.

The Reds also have a new manager in charge, as Dougie Freedman replaced the sacked Stuart Pearce earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Brighton currently find themselves just two points and a place above the bottom three, and are in real danger of suffering relegation to League One.

The Seagulls will head into today’s encounter on the back of a 1-0 away defeat to Blackpool in the Championship last weekend.

It promises to be an interesting game at The Amex, and this is how the two teams will line up.

Brighton & Hove Albion XI: Stockdale, Bruno, Greer, Dunk, Bennett; Holla, Ince, Teixeira; Calderon, O'Grady, Marc

Subs: Walton (GK), Hughes, Forster-Caskey, Kayal, LuaLua, Mackail-Smith, Best

Nottingham Forest XI: Darlow, Lichaj, Collins, Hobbs (c), Fox, Antonio, Gardner, Osborn, Lansbury, Burke, Assombalonga

Subs: De Vries, Fryatt, Lascelles, Paterson, Blackstock, Vaughan, Tesche
