Confirmed: Nottingham Forest v Brighton & Hove Albion lineups

Forest host Brighton at the City Ground on Monday evening.

Brighton & Hove Albion travel to the City Ground hoping to keep pressure on the Championship's top two, who are five and four points away respectively.

In contrast, their opponents Nottingham Forest are rapidly spiralling towards their worst finish at this level since they were relegated in 2005.

The omens are certainly in Brighton's favour, with the Seagulls winning nine of their last 14 league matches of which they have lost just one, and Forest tasting defeat in eight of their last 10 outings.

To make matters worse, the Tricky Trees have failed to win any of their previous five meetings at home to Brighton, with their last success coming 10 years ago in League One.

Brighton beat Forest 1-0 on the opening day, but can they do the double?

Here's how the two teams line up for tonight's fixture.

Nottingham Forest: De Vries, Lichaj, Mills, Jokic, Fox, Ward, Gardner, Cohen, Vaughan, Osborn, Lansbury.

Subs: Evtimov, Mendes, Macheda, Blackstock, Tesche, O.Burke, Worrall.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Stockdale, Bruno, Goldson, Dunk, Rosenior, LuaLua, Kayal, Stephens, Skalak, Murphy, Hemed.

Subs: Maenpaa, Greer, Bong, Sidwell, Knockaert, Wilson, Towell.
