Luton Town travel to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Tuesday night.

The hosts are currently unbeaten in their last three games in the Championship and are just a point behind Luton. Forest are in 16th place, with 40 points from 33 games so far.

In their last game, Forest drew 1-1 against Derby County. James Garner opened the scoring for them, but Colin Kazim-Richards equalized for Wayne Rooney's men late in the game.

Before that draw against Derby, Forest had successive 1-0 wins against Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest. Manchester United loanee Garner has been particularly impressive for them since joining last month.

Luton are currently in 14th place in the Championship and are certain to play their football in the second-tier next season as well.

In their last game, they produced a remarkable turnaround against Sheffield Wednesday to further heap the pressure on the Owls, who are still six points off safety. Luton were 2-0 down at half-time in that game but produced a stunning second half comeback to win that game 3-2.

Earlier this season, the two sides played out a 1-1 draw in a game where Forest were reduced to ten men in. Nicolas Ioannou received his marching orders as Luton's Glen Rea scored at both ends.
