Forest to win

Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineup

Nottingham Forest might end up having one hell of a season the rate they are going right now. They're already enjoying a FA Cup run, which has included a couple of Premier League scalps, but they're in the thick of a playoff battle. Win this and their place in the top six will look even better.

Predicted lineup – Samba, McKenna, Cook, Worrall, Spence, Lowe, Garner, Yates, Colback, Davis, Johnson

Of course, this game comes first and that will determine whether Stoke can leapfrog Forest with that game in hand to come or whether Forest will pull further away.

Predicted lineup – Bursik, Wilmot, Jagielka, Harwood-Bellis, Tymon, Baker, Allen, Powell, Campbell, Brown, Philogene-Bidace
