Confirmed: Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers line-ups

Forest City Ground

Here is how Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Nottingham Forest starting XI: Darlow, Lichaj, Collins, Fox, Lascelles, Lansbury, Gardner, Burke, Osborn, Blackstock, Antonio

Nottingham Forest sub: Veldwijk, Wilson, de Vries, Mancienne, Vaughan, Paterson, Fryatt

Bolton starting XI: Lonergan, Mills, Ream, Feeney, Dervite, Danns, Vela, Twardzik, Bannan, Clough, Le Fondre

Bolton subs: Amos, Moxey, Heskey, Wheater, Janko, Gudjohnsen, Slavchev

Nottingham Forest welcome Bolton Wanderers to the City Ground for this Championship encounter, with the hosts looking to push closer to the play-off places and the visitors hoping to pull further clear of the relegation zone.

Forest are are currently 10th in the table with 41 points from 31 matches, while Bolton are 17th with 37 points.

While the Trotters are seven points away from the drop-zone, they will know how quickly things can change in the tightest of divisions and a victory today would be very well received by their supporters and players alike.

The reverse fixture ended 2-2 earlier in the campaign but with Bolton winning just one of their last 12 matches on this ground it could be a tough afternoon for them.

Bolton have won just once in their last seven games and they will not want to maintain that poor form this weekend.
