Burn and Gordon start at Nottingham Forest – Official team news

The team sheets are in ahead of tonight’s 5.30pm kick-off at the City Ground, where Eddie Howe’s Mags take on Nuno’s Nottingham Forest.

NUFC XI: Dubravka – Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn – Longstaff, Bruno, Miley – Almiron, Wilson, Gordon. 

SUBS: Karius, Dummett, Lascelles, Ritchie, Barnes, Krafth, Hall, Livramento, Murphy.

There’s one change from last weekend’s 4-4 draw with Luton, with Callum Wilson coming in for Jacob Murphy. Anthony Gordon also STARTS despite being ruled out by Howe in yesterday’s press conference.

Dan Burn keeps his place at left-back, seeing Tino Livramento miss out following calls for him to return to the side. Harvey Barnes is on the bench, meaning Jacob Murphy and Miguel Almiron keep their place in attack.

Jamaal Lascelles is back on the bench after recovering from a calf injury, while Alexander Isak misses out once again.

For Forest, star man Morgan Gibbs-White is fit enough to start after picking up a knock in their FA Cup win over Bristol City in midweek, with former Mag Matz Sels also making his home league debut.

FOREST XI: Sels,  Williams, Niakhate, Murillo, Nuno Tavares; Yates, Dominguez; Elanga, Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Awoniyi.
