TEAM NEWS: McCarthy sticks with 4-3-3 formation at Nottingham Forest
Forest v Ipswich: Blues boss Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged line-up, following last weekend’s 2-1 home win over Huddersfield, for this afternoon’s Championship match at Nottingham Forest.
Town will once again line-up with a 4-3-3 formation as they seek a fourth successive win (a feat they’ve achieved just once in the last nine years) and first victory at The City Ground since 1999.
Forest boss Billy Davies, whose fifth-placed side are just two points above the Blues in the table, has made one enforced change to his team following last weekend’s 1-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday (only their second win in eight).
Midfielder Gonzalo Jara failed a late fitness test and has been replaced by Nathaniel Chalobah.
