Relegation-haunted Nottingham Forest host midtable Fulham at the City Ground on Tuesday and all of the pressure is on Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

WATCH NOTTINGHAM FOREST v FULHAM LIVE

Forest drew 1-1 at home against Crystal Palace at the weekend as Chris Wood’s equalizer earned them a well-deserved point. That point took Forest out of the relegation zone on goal difference and after their four-point deduction for breaching Premier League Profitability and Sustainability Rules (which they are appealing) there is a siege mentality growing. Morgan Gibbs-White, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Divock Origi hold the key to Forest’s attack and they need to start scoring more goals down the final stretch if they’re going to stay up.

Fulham fought back from 3-1 down at Sheffield United to draw 3-3 late on at the weekend as Marco Silva was disappointed with their defensive display and slow start. However, Rodrigo Muniz is in red-hot form up top and scored a stunning bicycle kick to rescue a point for Fulham at Sheffield United as the Brazilian striker has scored eight goals in his last eight Premier League games. Fulham’s main aim is to push for an eighth place finish which could be a European spot.

Nottingham Forest vs Fulham live updates!

Okay, maybe we have a game? Tosin heads home – Nottingham Forest 3-1 Fulham (49th minute)

This could be intriguing now. A corner from the left is flicked home by Tosin and that is a lovely header. Game on? Maybe. Fulham did fight back to draw 3-3 at Sheffield United this weekend.

Half time: Nottingham Forest 3-0 Fulham

What an incredible first half from Forest. They have torn Fulham to shreds. They are hungry, direct and have players running off the ball all over the place and they could be up by five or six.

Right on half time Forest surely seal the win – Nottingham Forest 3-0 Fulham (45th minute +3)

That is game, set, match, surely? Gibbs-White cuts in from the left and plays a one-two with Danilo before slotting home. Forest in dreamland.

Triple sub for Fulham and this is not pretty

Marco Silva is seething on the sidelines and he’s seen enough. Wilson, Lukic and Iwobi are all off, with Cairney, Traore and Willian on. A triple sub after 33 minutes is never a good thing.

It should be 3-0 to Forest but Elanga hits the post

Forest are ripping Fulham to pieces and this time Elanga is in but his low shot skims the post and goes wide. He should score. And he knows it. But Forest look like they’re going to score every time they go forward. Add in the big chance Hudson-Odoi missed and Forest could easily be 4-0 up.

Wood totally catches out Leno and it’s 2-0! – Nottingham Forest 2-0 Fulham (19th minute)

That is outrageous from Chris Wood! He turns and from 25 yards out he has a pop and totally catches Leno out as the ball flies in to the bottom corner. Forest are in dreamland. The City Ground is going bonkers.

It should be 2-0 to Forest as Hudson-Odoi misses a big chance

The ball is worked to Hudson-Odoi and he is clean through on goal but decides to cut back in and Fulham clear from a corner. Nuno Espirito Santo is livid. Hudson-Odoi should have hit that first time.

Perfect start for Forest as Hudson-Odoi curls home – Nottingham Forest 1-0 Fulham (9th minute)

The City Ground has erupted as Gibbs-White turns and plays a lovely ball to the left to find Hudson-Odoi in-behind and he cuts inside and curls home a beauty to put the hosts 1-0 up. That was silky.


Nottingham Forest lineup

Sels; Williams, Omobamidele, Murillo, Aina; Yates, Danilo; Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Wood

Fulham lineup

Leno; Tete, Tosin, Bassey, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Wilson, Pereira, Iwobi; Muniz


Nottingham Forest focus, team news

Forest’s injury issues are calming down but they are missing their main up top in Awoniyi. Chris Wood is stepping in well to that role and USMNT fans should watch out for Gio Reyna getting more minutes in this game after his decent cameo at the weekend.

OUT: Taiwo Awoniyi (undisclosed) | QUESTIONABLE: Nuno Tavares (thigh), Ola Aina (undisclosed), Willy Boly (undisclosed)

Fulham focus, team news

Fulham have no injuries which is a huge bonus for Silva as they go full steam ahead for a top 10 finish late in the season.
