The English Championship continues this weekend and will see Nottingham Forest host Hull City at the City Ground on Saturday.

Nottingham Forest continued their impressive run under Steve Cooper last weekend. They beat Swansea City 4-1 away from home, with Philip Zinckernagel, Lewis Grabban, Brennan Johnson and Cafu all getting on the scoresheet for the Reds.

Nottingham Forest currently sit ninth in the league table with 31 points from 22 games. They are just four points away from the promotion playoff spots and will be looking to reduce the gap on Saturday.

Hull City have hit good form of late as they are unbeaten in their last six games after winning just one in the 16 games prior. They played out a 2-2 draw against Bristol City last time out and will feel they perhaps deserved more from the game.

Hull City sit 19th in the Championship standings with 23 points. They will be looking to continue their good form when they face Nottingham Forest at the weekend.
