Confirmed: Nottingham Forest v Blackburn Rovers line-ups, Assombalonga is back

City Ground

Nottingham Forest take on Blackburn Rovers.

Nottingham Forest host Blackburn Rovers this evening hoping for inspiration as they seek to snap a winless streak.

The club have not won since March 8, with interim boss Paul Williams looking for his first victory since replacing Dougie Freedman.

Here is a look at how the two teams line up this evening for the fixture...

Nottingham Forest line up: De Vries, Lichaj, Mills, Jokic, Fox, Mendes, Gardner, Tesche, Osborn, Lansbury (c), Blackstock

Nottingham Forest substitutes: Evtimov, Cohen, Assombalonga, Vaughan, O'Grady, O.Burke, Worrall

Blackburn Rovers line up: Steele, Lowe, Ward, Hanley (c), Kilgallon, Akpan, Evans, Lenihan, Marshall, Graham, Mahoney

Blackburn Rovers substitutes: Brown, Gomez, Williamson, Duffy, Bennett, Jackson

The inclusion of Britt Assombalonga is welcome news, with the free scoring striker yet to feature this season after suffering a serious knee injury last February.

Forest's slide down the table has left them in 19th place, level on points with this evening's opponents Blackburn, who have a better goal difference.

Rovers have lost three of their last four games and have won just three of their last 10 matches.
