Confirmed Hull City and Nottingham Forest line-ups

Hull City KC South Stand

Here is how Hull City and Nottingham Forest will line up this evening:

Hull City starting XI: McGregor, Odubajo, Dawson, Davies, Robertson, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Clucas, Snodgrass, Diame, Hernandez

Hull City subs: Jakupovic, Bruce, Maguire, Akpom, Hayden, Aluko, Diomande

Nottingham Forest starting XI: De Vries, Lichaj, Mills, Mancienne, Jokic, Mendes, Cohen, Vaughn, Osborne, Gardner, Macheda

Nottingham Forest subs: Evtimov, Wilson, Blackstock, Tesche, Walker, O. Burke, Grant

Hull City welcome Nottingham Forest to the KC Stadium this evening for their latest Championship clash.

The Tigers are currently third in the table with 65 points from 35 matches, two points worse off than Middlesbrough with a game in hand.

This is the perfect chance for them to climb back into the automatic promotion places but Forest could have the wind at their sails with a new manager at the helm, albeit a temporary one in the form of Paul Williams.

Forest are 14th in the second tier, 14 points outside the play-offs with practically no chance of ensuring more than a mid-table finish at best this season.

Forest lost 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday last time out and that result ultimately cost Dougie Freedman his job, but only time will tell if Williams fares better between now and the end of the campaign.
