Meet the opposition

Aitor Karanka was appointed Nottingham Forest manager in January, 2018. The Spaniard brought in a lot of players in the summer transfer window and his side haven’t took long to get going, as they go into the game against City being unbeaten in their last seven games.

Forest have lost just one game this season which came against Brentford on September 1, meaning they are still yet to be beaten at home. The last team to beat them at the City ground in the league was Brentford in April.

Forest travelled to Middlesbrough last time out, beating them 2-0 with one of the goals scored by former City striker and play-off winner Lewis Grabban. The striker is Forest’s top scorer this season scoring five goals, all of them coming within their last five games.

The last time the Canaries visited the City Ground was in November 2017, when a Daryl Murphy goal helped Forest edge past Norwich with a 1-0 victory.
