14 April 2022

The Hatters are back at Kenilworth Road to face play-off rivals Nottingham Forest on Good Friday.

Nathan Jones' side slipped to a first defeat in five matches against Huddersfield Town on Monday night but have the opportunity to bounce back on home turf against the high-flying Reds.

Nottingham Forest are the in-form team in the Sky Bet Championship, winning their last five matches in a row and unbeaten since January.

With three wins on the bounce following the international break, Forest are not only in contention for the play-off places but will be keen to put pressure on Bournemouth for an automatic promotion spot. 

Brennan Johnson is the Reds' biggest threat with 15 goals and eight assists this season. The Welsh winger has netted four goals in his last four matches after recently being deployed in a centre-forward role alongside Aston Villa loanee Kienan Davis.

 

Last time we met:

It was a goalless draw at the City Ground back in November after Brice Samba denied Elijah Adebayo from the penalty spot. (Highlights below)

The last meeting at Kenilworth Road saw 10-man Nottingham Forest come from a goal down to earn a point, with Glen Rea netting at both ends.
