Nottingham Forest will be the heavy favourites heading into their League Cup game against Walsall this evening.
Forest hold the superior position in the Football League and have some top quality youngsters that manager Dougie Freedman will call on to come into his team, giving him some fresh options in different areas.
Forest’s season didn’t get off to a good start with defeat at the hands of Brighton in the Championship last week, but they have had plenty of time to rest and recover ahead of this game.
It’s a great chance for the younger players or any fringe players used this evening, to show their boss why they deserve to be in the team on a more consistent basis.
Forest will be hoping to put this match to bed quickly, which will give Freedman the luxury of being able to withdraw and protect any key players he has to used ahead of the game against Rotherham this weekend.
Here is the team Freedman could go with for the game this evening.
Nottingham Forest: Evtimov, Lichaj, Riera, Hobbs, Pinillos, Mancienne, Vaughan, Ward, Burke, Paterson, Walker
