Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City team news

Nottingham Forest

Nuno Espirito Santo will consider changes for this match given his priority is keeping Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. The ex-Wolves boss will be without Divock Origi due to injury and Ola Aina, Willy Boly and Ibrahim Sangare due to the Africa Cup of Nations. Loan signing, Giovanni Reyna, could be set to make his full debut for Forest on Wednesday night with Callum Hudson-Odoi a doubt following a rough challenge in the match against Bournemouth.

Predicted Lineup: Sels (GK), Montiel, Omobamidele, Murillo, Tavares, Danilo, Dominguez, Elanga, Gibbs-White, Reyna, Awoniyi

Bristol City

Bristol City will be without loanee, Scott Twine, for this match as he lined up for Hull City in the third round of the competition. In terms of injuries, Bristol City will be without Mark Sykes, Rob Atkinson, Ayman Benarous and Kal Naismith which could mean Gardner-Hickman and Mehmeti could come into the manager's thoughts.

Predicted Lineup: O'Leary (GK), Tanner, Dickie, Vyner, McCrorie, Gardner-Hickman, James, Pring, Knight, Mehmeti, Conway

Player to watch – Morgan Gibbs-White

The general consensus with Nottingham Forest is that if Morgan Gibbs-White plays well then they will play well. The attacking midfielder is undoubtedly the club's most talented player but he has gone off the boil in recent weeks which makes this match against Championship opposition the perfect opportunity for him to bounce back to top form.
