Team News: Nottingham Forest
Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all ahead of this match thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: QPR
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is only a single fitness worry for the QPR boss Mark Warburton to be concerned about. Luke Amos (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that QPR might have a difficult job to see themselves scoring against this Nottingham Forest side who should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore seeing a very even contest with a 1-0 victory for Nottingham Forest when all is said and done.
Hoping for a good game.
