Cardiff City Stadium

Here is a look at how the two teams line up...

Cardiff City: Marshall, Peltier, Fabio, Manga, Connolly, Noone, Gunnarsson, Ralls, Pilkington, Watt, Jones

Subs: Moore, Malone, Whittingham, Ameobi, O'Keefe, Macheda, Mason

Subs: Evtimov, Lansbury, Mendes, Oliveira, C.Burke, O'Grady, Osborn

Cardiff host Nottingham Forest this evening, aiming to correct a two game losing streak.

The Bluebirds have lost to Birmingham and MK Dons in their last two games, and have slipped to 10th in the table as a result.

Going into the game they are four points off the play-off spots, while opponents Nottingham Forest are in 15th.

Forest are four points behind Cardiff and come into the game in a solid run of form.

They are unbeaten in December, winning three and drawing three. Despite this, they have not won an away game since September, and will be keen to end 2015 on a high by erasing this unwanted statistic.

Cardiff meanwhile have not lost a home game in the same time period, and have beaten Forest in six of their last seven meetings.
