This is how Norwich City and Nottingham Forest will line up for the Championship clash at Carrow Road…

Nottingham Forest will be looking to maintain their challenge for the Championship playoffs with victory over Norwich City away from home this afternoon.

Dougie Freedman’s side will head into the clash at Carrow Road on the back of a 2-0 victory over Rotherham United at the City Ground.

Forest are currently ninth in the Championship table with 57 points from 38 matches, eight points behind sixth-placed Brentford.

Meanwhile, heading into this afternoon’s game at home, Norwich find themselves fourth in the standings with 67 points from 38 games, five points behind leaders Watford.

Alex Neil’s side have suffered a dip in form of late, having drawn their last two matches against Huddersfield Town away and Derby County at home.

However, playing at Carrow Road will give the Norwich players more confidence of returning to winning ways.

Norwich City XI: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin (c), Bassong, Olsson; Howson, Tettey, Dorrans, Johnson; Hoolahan; Jerome
