Nottingham Forest face an in-form Burnley side at Turf Moor on Tuesday.
Nottingham Forest face an in-form Burnley side at Turf Moor on Tuesday.
Nottingham Forest return to league action after a break caused by Hull City's involvement in the FA Cup.
They travel to Burnley on the back of a disappointing 2-0 home defeat against Huddersfield, last time out.

Forest have no new injuries and are clear of suspensions.

Manager Dougie Freedman did said today (Monday) that both Henry Lansbury and Britt Assombalonga should return to training during the next international break.

Burnley will be a tough game, but Forest have been good on the road of late and could and should be able to push them. The Clarets beat Rotherham 2-0, at home, at the weekend and I believe they are one of the favourites for automatic promotion.

I predict that Forest will line up in a 4-5-1 formation and try to hit Burnley on the break. This is a formation used often by Forest and one that Huddersfield had obviously done their home work on. They deserved their victory last Saturday.

I would take a draw, but on our day I know we could take all three points if we play to our strengths.
