The City Ground will host Forest's championship game versus Rotherham tonight with both sides needing a result

Struggling Nottingham Forest will be desperate for a result tonight as they welcome bottom of the table Rotherham United to the City Ground.

Attention has swiftly returned to the pitch after Forest learned that Nigel Clough would not become their new manager last night (see full story here).

Interim boss Gary Brazil will oversee his third match as Forest boss following two encouraging performances against Bristol City and Leeds United.

Forest head into the game sitting dangerously in 19th place and will hope that three points can help them to climb the championship table.

Ahead of the fixture, Gary Brazil said: “I am looking forward to tomorrow night’s game and we need Forest fans to come down and support us. We need to stick together and make sure we pick up another very important result tomorrow night.

“It is an important game. From our point of view, I have been pleased with the performances we have had and I am confident and would expect us to get three points. The atmosphere in the squad tells me we are in a good place mentally and I am looking forward to tomorrow night.”

Forest are set to welcome new signing Aaron Tshibola into the match day squad following his loan move from Aston Villa, although he is unlikely to start the game.

They will be without former key player Henri Lansbury (pictured below) who moved in the opposite direction to join Aston Villa.

Gary Brazil went on to discuss squad selection ahead of the game.

He said: “We are focused on putting out what we believe is the right team to take three points against Rotherham.

“Myself and my backroom staff went up to Rotherham to watch them against Barnsley. We know everything about them and we are ready for that.”

Rotherham United will arrive at the City Ground on a run of just one win in six, the club have endured a tough season that has seen them change manager three teams already.

Current interim boss Paul Warne felt that his side were unlucky last time out in a defeat against Barnsley.

He said: “”There’s no point berating the lads as we need to go again Tuesday night. We’ll do all we can to bandage them up and pick them up for another game. We did everything right to pick up at least a point against Barnsley but lady luck isn’t shining down on me at the moment.”

Tonight’s fixture promises to be competitive with two sides battling for much needed points.
