In Championship action this week, Nottingham Forest will host Queens Park Rangers (QPR) at the City Ground on Wednesday night.

Nottingham Forest are enjoying a good spell at the moment. They carried out a 4-0 demolition of Reading in their last game, thanks to goals from Ryan Yates, Sam Surridge and a brace from Aston Villa loanee Keinan Davis.

The Reds sit ninth in the league table with 55 points from 35 games. They are just two points away from the promotion playoff spots and will look to get there with a win on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, QPR returned to winning ways this weekend as they seek to return to the top flight. They picked up a 2-1 comeback win over Luton Town last time out via second-half goals from Andre Gray and Robert Dickie, which cancelled Luton's opener.

The visitors sit fourth in the Championship standings with 59 points from 36 games.
