Nottingham Forest team news: Good news on injury front, duo could start vs QPR

Nottingham Forest will face Queens Park Rangers in the matchday 34 in the Championship at the City Ground on Saturday, with the hosts eager to bolster their promotion hopes.

The home side are having a positive season as they are clearly in the running for a return to the Premier League for 2020-21.

As things stand, Forest are placed fifth in the Championship with 55 points, four behind second-placed Leeds United after 33 matches.

However, the Reds’ recent form must be a cause of concern for the team management as the side has only won one of their last four league games.

A home game against QPR seems like the ideal opportunity for Forest to get back to winning ways and strength their grip on a play-off berth.

On the team news front, as per BBC Sport, Forest have no new injuries to worry about and therefore manager Sabri Lamouchi can name the strongest possible lineup.

The report adds that Alfa Semedo and Tyler Walker could well be in line to stake a claim in the starting XI.

Forest’s record against QPR is an impressive one, where they have managed to win 10 times in 23 outings, which also included six defeats.

In the previous meeting between the teams earlier in the competition, the Reds secured a thumping 4-0 win while playing away from home.

However, QPR prevailed 1-0 when they last travelled to Nottingham.

Forest are a big club with a loyal following that certainly would not look out of place in the Premier League.

The fact that the club in the promotion mix will be a cause of great excitement for the supporters, but there is currently only a two-point gap between themselves and seventh-placed Bristol City.
