Fulham vs. Nottingham Forest Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Both seeking redemption from narrow 1-0 defeats over the weekend, Fulham and Nottingham Forest collide at Craven Cottage in Wednesday’s Premier League encounter.

Marco Silva’s Fulham faced heartbreak at Anfield, falling 4-3 to Liverpool despite valiant efforts, while Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest suffered a 1-0 loss to Everton.

Match Preview

Fulham’s resilient display against Liverpool saw them level twice before conceding a late winner.

Despite an impressive fight, Fulham’s defensive woes continue, conceding nine goals in their last three outings, remaining without a clean sheet in 10 matches across all competitions.

However, with a win-loss pattern at Craven Cottage this season, Fulham aims to avoid extending their run of 11 winless Premier League Wednesday games.

They sit 14th in the league but hold an eight-point cushion above the relegation places.

Nottingham Forest, in 15th place, seeks recovery from three consecutive defeats. Struggling to find consistency, their recent away performances have seen them gain only one point from the last four fixtures, failing to score in three.

Both Fulham and Forest favor 3-2 scorelines, but Fulham emerged victorious with that margin in a prior encounter at the City Ground.

Team News

Fulham is likely to miss Traore, Diop, and Muniz due to injuries. Manager Silva has Cairney and Reid as potential starters following their impactful performance against Liverpool.

Forest faces concerns with Murillo, Wood, and Danilo. Boly’s injury could see Felipe or Moussa Niakhate taking his place.

Meanwhile, Dominguez, Hudson-Odoi, and Williams could earn starting spots.
