Nottingham Forest look on fire at the moment after investment by new owner Evangelos Marinakas and under Aitor Karanka are playing in a 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, they possess the in-form Lewis Grabban up top and Joe Lolley on the flanks, in the midfield they have former West Brom man Claudio Yacob providing a combative presence. All in all, this won’t be an easy team for Gary Rowett’s men to break down.
Stoke City meanwhile will have absentees for this match with Tom Ince recuperating after a hernia operation, apart from that it’s all good for The Potters as they try to keep up this decent run of form and really charge up the table. Gary Rowett will probably deploy 4-3-3 to hit Nottingham Forest on the counter while negating the threat posed by Grabban. Jack Butland can expect a busy day at the office, while it will be interesting to see whether Tom Edwards starts after impressing against Middlesbrough.
