Predicted Nottingham Forest v Rotherham line-ups

Forest City Ground

Here are the potential teams for the game between Nottingham Forest and Rotherham.

To be played on Wednesday 18th March 2015 at 19:45. Venue: City Ground, Nottingham

Odds: Forest 4/5, Draw 14/5, Rotherham 5/1

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman will be hoping his team can go one better than the draw against Leeds United last weekend and put another three points on the board against Rotherham.

Forest have been in great form since Freedman took over and while the boss will play down his team’s chances of securing a top six place, it remains a very small possibility over the remaining games of the season.

Forest have the home advantage and should be looking to cash in and use that to their advantage.

Rotherham are under pressure because they are battling just above the bottom three in the Championship.

They do have a healthy advantage over the sides in the relegation places, but Steve Evans will want three points to make things a little more comfortable for his team over the next few weeks.

Rotherham have to start the game well, defend tight and ensure there are no slip-ups during the early exchanges of the game. If they can keep a clean sheet, they have every chance of stealing a victory in attack.
