This Saturday, the Premier League sees Nottingham Forest welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers at the City Ground, in what promises to be a pivotal clash for both teams.

With Forest fighting to stay clear of the relegation zone and Wolves aiming to rectify their recent form, both sides are looking for victory.

Current Form

Forest's Current Form

Nottingham Forest's performance in the Premier League has been a mixed bag recently.

Following a four-point deduction for breaching the league's Profit and Sustainability Rules, they've managed a win, a draw, and a loss in their last three fixtures.

A commendable 3-1 victory over Fulham was a highlight, showing their capability to secure crucial points.

However, they currently sit 17th, teetering just above the relegation zone on goal difference.

Wolves' Current Form

On the other side, Wolverhampton Wanderers are grappling with frustration after a series of disappointing results.

Their latest setback was a controversial 2-1 home defeat to West Ham, marking four Premier League matches without a win.

This slump has seen them drop to 11th in the standings, six points adrift of the top seven.

Forest are without key players Taiwo Awoniyi, Nuno Tavares, and Willy Boly due to injuries, though there is hope Awoniyi could return before the season's end.

Despite these absences, Morgan Gibbs-White, against his former club, looks set to continue his influential role, having contributed to four goals in his last four matches.

Wolves Team News

Wolves' injury woes include Pedro Neto and potentially Rayan Ait-Nouri, with the latter doubtful after a calf issue.

Their lineup could see changes, with Matt Doherty possibly stepping in if Ait-Nouri is unavailable.

Key Players

Nottingham Forest's Key Player

For Nottingham Forest, Chris Wood emerges as a vital figure, having netted his fourth goal in as many games against Tottenham.
