Hull City will welcome Nottingham Forest to the KCOM Stadium on Saturday. City have started to put in some very good performances recently and will be looking to pull off another surprise result, much like against West Brom and Middlesbrough recently. However, Nottingham Forest are on a good run themselves having not lost in four in the league.

Left back Stephen Kingsley is out injured and so we could see Nigel Adkins put Eric Lichaj in as deputy and shift Reece Burke to right back. This would leave Jordy de Wijs and Tommy Elphick to play in the centre half positions. Despite both of the pair making catastrophic errors in the Birmingham game, they have formed a sold partnership with each other.

We have seen good performances as Adkins has opted for a back four over a back five. With the faith Adkins has shown in giving key players plenty of gametime, the team is likely to stay very much the same, especially after the players have not played in two weeks.

Nottingham Forest top scorer Lewis Grabban has hit 9 goals this season and will be wanting to add to that tally. But City have discovered a goalscorer of their own recently as Frazier Campbell is showing flashes of the player who helped take the Tigers to the Premier League for the first time. Whilst the aim of this season is different to that famous 2007/08 season, he has bagged six league goals this season with four in his last three games and looks deadly infront of goal.

Despite the gap between the 7th and 22nd placed teams, I can see this game being very competitive and the result could go either way, in my opinion. Both teams will back themselves for a win so hopefully there will be some nice attacking football on display at the KCOM Stadium this weekend.

Formation: 4-5-1

GK: David Marshall
RB: Reece Burke
CB: Tommy Elphick
CB: Jordy de Wijs
LB: Eric Lichaj
