Nottingham Forest will host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the City Ground in the Championship tomorrow.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has told the club’s official website that his players need to wary of the Wolverhampton Wanderers strikers.

Forest will host Wolves at the City Ground in the Championship tomorrow afternoon in what promises to be a hugely entertaining game.

Both the Reds and their visitors are looking for a top-six finish in the league this season, and Freedman expects a good game.

The Scot has also warned his defenders that they need to be careful of the Wolves attackers and told Forest’s official website: “It’s a fantastic challenge for the players and a wonderful game because the two teams will be very open – a draw’s no good to anybody…

“We need to impose our game on to Wolves. Kenny Jackett’s done very well and we need to take care of his strikers. It’ll be a very good game and I’m looking forward to it.”

Despite being the visiting side, Wolves will be confident of maintaining their current run of good form.

Kenny Jackett’s side have scored 56 goals and have conceded 45, and will continue to play attacking football.

Benik Afobe and Nouha Dicko are expected to start against Forest, and the duo will be supported by attacker Bakary Sako.

Wolves are currently eighth in the Championship table with 65 points from 39 matches, just two points behind sixth-placed Ipswich Town.

Meanwhile, Forest find themselves ninth in the standings with 57 points from 39 games, 10 points off the final playoff spot.
