Confirmed: Ipswich Town and Nottingham Forest line-ups

Portman Road - Ipswich Town

Here is how Ipswich Town and Nottingham Forest will line up for this afternoon’s Championship clash.

Ipswich starting XI: Bialkowski, Parr, Mings, Chambers, Smith, Berra, Skuse, Murphy, Hunt, Sears, Bishop

Ipswich subs: Gerken, Fryers, Hewitt, Anderson, Bru, Ambrose, Varney

Forest starting XI: Darlow, Lichaj, Lascelles, Hobbs, Mancienne, Antonio, Lansbury, Vaughan, Osborn, Blackstock, Akpom

Forest subs: Evtimov, Fox, Kane, Paterson, Burke, Walker, Grant

Ipswich Town welcome Nottingham Forest to Portman Road this weekend with the hosts looking to maintain their place in the top-six and Forest hoping for a top-10 finish.

Ipswich are currently occupying the final play-off place but they know both Brentford and Wolverhampton Wanderers are hot on their heels, just three points behind with two games remaining.

A win this afternoon would be brilliant for Ipswich but Forest are a tough proposition, even if their recent record suggests otherwise.

Dougie Freedman’s side have not won any of their last six matches, four of which have been defeats, while Ipswich have lost just once in their last seven outings.

That said, the match earlier this season ended 2-2 and Ipswich’s poor form against today’s opponents – with only one win in their last 11 meetings – could make for an interesting clash.
