Next Up Brighton

Last season the Seagulls were relegated from the Championship, but a good start this term sees them amongst the early promotion pace setters in League 1. Last weekend they let slip there 100% record after leading 2-0 at home to Brentford, they could only manage a draw. Manager Mark NcGhee looks set to be without want away striker Colin Kazim-Richards who will take no part in the squad.

Forest remain unbeaten and have yet to concede a goal in any of there opening three games. Gary Holt will be available for selection after recovering from tonsilitis, which forced him to miss the game at Northampton.

Vital Quotes:

The Seagulls are fast building a reputation for attacking football that manager McGhee sees no reason to change.

'We're still waiting to see if we're promotion material. But we know Forest feel they are, so it's a measure for us, and obviously a win would give us a lot of confidence,' said McGhee.
