Confirmed: Birmingham City v Nottingham Forest lineups

Birmingham City FC - St. Andrews

Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest will face each other at St. Andrew’s Stadium in the Championship this evening…

Nottingham Forest will be looking to pick up all three points when they take on Birmingham City away from home in the Championship this evening.

Forest will head into the game at St. Andrew’s Stadium on the back of a 2-1 victory over Queen Park Rangers away from home at Loftus Road.

That comeback win against Rangers on Saturday afternoon will have certainly boosted the players’ confidence, and manager Dougie Freedman will want a similar performance against Birmingham.

Gary Rowett’s side will also head into this evening’s match on the back of a win, having got the better of Bristol City 4-2 at home on Saturday.

The Blues have made a strong start to the 2015-16 campaign and find themselves fourth in the Championship table at the moment with 11 points from five matches, just five points behind leaders Brighton & Hove Albion with a game in hand.
