Nottingham forest Team News:

Chris Gunter misses the last of his 3 game suspension for this fixture & Paul Anderson will also miss the next 2 games at least but this is much better news than the ligament damage they originally thought he had. The only other absentee here should be David McGoldrick who is missing for around another month with a dislocated shoulder.

Player to watch: Dexter Blackstock

He's scored in both City Ground games so far & is Forest's leading scorer with 2 from four league starts.

Millwall Team News:

Shaun Batt is out with a knee problem which he has had surgery on & he will be missing for the Lions for quite some time but he is the only absentee from the Millwall squad.

Player to watch: Steve Morison

He is the Lions leading scorer so far with 3 goals in their first 4 games & the former non league striker also top scored for them last term in their promotion season with 20 league goals.

Match Facts & Stats

There have been 48 previous league meetings between these two teams with Millwall taking 17 wins from those games, Forest 16 & 15 draws. There have been 116 goals in those 48 games split evenly at 58 each.

Ref Watch:

Nigel Miller of County Durham, he has taken charge of 6 games so far this season in which he has booked 8 players, sent off one & awarded 2 penalties so far. The last time he took charge of a Forest game was the 1 - 0 City Ground win over Sheffield United. The last Millwall game he took charge of was a 3 - 2 away win for the Lions in the F.A. Cup 2 seasons ago over Crewe. In total Mr Miller has taken charge of 8 Forest games in the past of which Forest have won 5, drawn 2 & lost just the once, annoyingly though, that defeat came at the hands of Millwall at the City Ground in January 2005.

He will be assisted by Mark Astley of Manchester & Jason Knowles of West Yorkshire

Forth Official for the day will be Ross Joyce of Cleveland

Match Prediction:

Forest have to win at some point & our home form is still good, although Millwall have had a great start to their Championship campaign I'm still going for a home win, 2 - 1 Forest
