Forest v West Brom match preview

Forest entertain West Bromwich Albion in their first home league encounter of the season

Vital Quotes:

I think that once we find a settled back four and a settled team it will give us a barometer of where we are as a team

Nottingham Forest Team News:

Chambers sits out his second game of his suspension, while Moussi, Bennett, Perch and Wilson all definitely miss out through injury. Earnshaw and Gunter hope to back in the fold after their return from international duty. Tyson is hopeful of being included despite being stretchered off on Wednesday night.

Player to watch: Radoslaw Majewski

After a cracking performance against Bradford on Wednesday night Radoslaw looks to be on top of his form.

West Bromwich Albion Team News:

Albion have no new major injury doubts, with Koren, Cech, Brunt, Mulumbu and Meite all returning from the midweek internationals. They will also hope to include new signings, Joe Mattock for his first league appearance and Jerome Thomas who is due to sign since becoming a free agent in the summer.

Player to watch: Jonathan Greening

Now in his 6th season as an Albion player Greening continues to be a class act and a player forest will have to try to keep quiet.
