Nottingham Forest are aiming to get back in the promotion trail following a narrow defeat to Cardiff City.

The Reds face Millwall at The Den but have not beat the London side since 2015.

The game will be the 70th meeting between the two sides with Millwall edging out the Reds in 26 wins to 22 for Forest.

Sabri Lamouchi takes the side without Carl Jenkinson, Samba Sow and Ryan Yates who are injured and suspended.

Speaking at the press conference, top scorer Lewis Grabban said: “So far we have started off well and now it’s just about replicating that for the next third.”

Millwall are unbeaten in their last four games but still find themselves in the bottom half of the table.

Since Gary Rowett took over at the helm at Millwall they have only lost a single game in a spell of seven matches.

Rowett is aware of the threat Forest have on the counter attack away from home and said: “They’ve been very, very strong defensively and very deep. They break from those deep areas but have got the quality to get up the pitch. We’ll make sure we’re on top of our game.”

Striker Matt Smith hopes to start for The Lions after being introduced to the starting XI last week by Rowett.

He said: “Like any game in this league it will be tough and a physical battle but we’re going to make sure we are up to the test.”

Millwall are 7/5 odds to win and Nottingham Forest are 2/1 to win. For both to draw it is 21/10. Odds are from SkyBet at the time of writing.
